When I was a young boy, I wanted to sail around the world
That's the life for me
Living on the sea
Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe
The lust of a pioneer
Will acknowledge no frontier
I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky
Lightning flash, tempers flare
'Round the horn if you dare

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Six months in a leaky boat

Aotearoa, rugged individual
Glisten like a pearl
At the bottom of the world
The tyranny of distance didn't stop the cavalier
So why should it stop me
I'll conquer and stay free
Ah, c'mon all you lads, let's forget and forgive
There's a world to explore
Tales to tell back on shore

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Lucky just to keep afloat

Ship-wrecked love can be cruel, don't be fooled by her kind
There's a wind in my sails
Will protect and prevail

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Nothing to it leaky boat
