    And I say to the day
    Why'd you drop down to die
    With fifty five falls
    And seventy skies?
    And I say to the day
    Why this ballad of brine?
    With Mayflower May and here monocle'd eye

    Where she lies
    Gently close her eyes
    Where she lies
    Gently close her eyes
    Oh, Damn July!

    Oh, I had a friend
    I remember her well
    With sad little hands
    A sad sickle cell..
    Oh, I had a friend
    Her ship sailed away
    T'was fifty five falls
    ago to this day

    Where she lies
    Gently close her eyes
    Where she lies
    Gently close her eyes
    Oh, Damn July!

    And I say to the day
    Why'd you drop down to die
    With fifty five falls
    And seventy skies
    And I say to the day
    Why this Ballad of Brine?
    With Mayflower May and her monocle'd eye

    When she dies
    Slowly close her eyes
    Where she lies
    Gently close her eyes
    Oh, Damn July
