Text:

Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling,
Thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling,
Thanks to the rolling sea

Fish on the table and fish on the fire,
Fried fish hanging on the tree
Everything here that your heart desires,
Thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling sea

Living is good and living is fine
We’re happy as can be
We owe all this to the salty brine,
Thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling sea

We work all day but our hearts are gay
And while we work we sing
The mighty sea is good to us
And we’ve got everything
Abalone steaks and tuna fish cakes,
Taste so heavenly
We know who we owe it to,
Thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling,
Thanks to the rolling sea
Thanks to the rolling, rolling, rolling,
Thanks to the rolling sea
