 We are brave sailors always riding the sea We are less than one hundred but as tough as can be We sleep in three bunkers on top of each other Our numbers double from one bunker to another We dance in joy all through the night In groups of fives under the moonlight Last night twelve of us were swallowed by waves Leaving alive more than two third of the braves Still we continue the journey refusing to fail So tell me how many of us are left to sail?
