  1. I am the captain and I have been told
    That tomorrow we land and my ship has been sold
    Now losing this boat is worth scarce a mention
    I think of the crew, most of all the first ensign
    For all we learned the sea

    Guiding a ship, it takes more than your skill
    It’s the compass inside it’s the strength of your will
    The first ensign watched as tempests all tried me
    I sang in the wind as if God were beside me
    For all we learned the sea

    You take the wheel one more time like I showed you
    We’ve reached the strait once even I could not go through

    I am the captain and I have been told
    But I am not shaken, I am eight years old
    And you are still young, but you’ll understand
    That the stars of the sea are the same for the land
    And we came to learn the sea

    (Dar Williams – We learned the sea)
