Des Moines Fairgrounds. As I remember, June 1974. Went to see the captain, strangest I could find Laid my proposition down, laid it on the line I won't slave for beggar's pay, likewise gold and jewels But I would slave to learn the way to sink your ship of fools. Chorus - Ship of fools on a cruel sea Ship of fools sail away from me It was later than I thought when I first believed you But now I cannot share your laughter, ship of fools Saw your first ship sink and drown from rocking of the boat And all that could not sink of swim were just left there to float I won't leave you drifting down but whoa it makes me wild With thirty years upon my head to have you call me child The bottles stand as empty now, as they were filled before Time there was and plenty, but from that cup no more Though I could not caution all, I still might warn a few Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools.
