LIFE ON THE OCEAN WAVE." BY A BAD SAILOR." A Life on the Ocean Wave The man who wrote it was green He never has been at sea, And a storm he never has seen. He never has seen a wave As it dashed o'er the vessel's deck He never has seen a fire atsea, Or been floating upon a wreck. He never has been aroused From his morning's gentle doze, By the sound of the splashing water, As it fell from the horrid hose. He never has heard a man Scrubbing right over his head, With a noise sufficient to arouse From the grave the slumbering dead. He never has seen a fat woman Growing thinner day by day, And leaning over the vessel's side Throwing herself away. While people look carelessly on, Though in tears the woman may be, And unfeelingly say it is nothing at all— Only the roll of the sea. Seasick he never has been to his toes, And crept into bed in his coat, While every motion increased his throes, And his feelings were all in his throat. This man may have sailed in a boat In some puddle or on a ssund But if he has been to sea and wrote I Such a song he deserves to be drowned -Golden kiqosy.
