My sister and my brother ships are made of wood and steel
And they’re hollow, so they take up lots of space.
But I was built of marble with a solid granite core,
Boding ignominious disgrace. 

Chorus: And they’ll start again with beryl, quartz, and metamorphic rock,
But the ship who sank will sink once more
A few feet from the dock.
I’ll sink once more.
