This is a crazy life,
Everyday struggle and strife,
Quick get it fixed and patch that pipe up,
For craft and for care we have little truck.

This is a happy life,
Good friends and good laughs,
Nothing’s a bother when your having a blast,
For stress and for worries we chatter away.

This is a crazy life,
Hundreds of miles away from your wife,
You miss home and hearth and kids tucked in beds,
You worry and wonder till your stressed out of your head,
For family and romance you pine away.

This a happy life,
Everyday it is measured and set out by the line,
With bits of excitement to break up your time,
You push, pull and batter and hammer away,
On watch half your life, is it night? is it day?,
For this is a normal routine and battleship grey.
