Ding Dong Ding Dong
the birds are singing
the bells are ringing twenty-nine times
for the Edmond Fitzgerald is sinking
at fifty-two feet a minute
with twenty-nine men aboard
Ding Dong Ding Dong Ding Dong Ding Dong
the bells rang twenty-nine times
for every sailor for every man
for they went to the bottom
to never be seen again
they fell down twenty-nine fathoms and fifty-two leagues
to the bottom of the Witches lair and she
never lets anyone go
‘cause it has been said that Superior never gives
up her dead.

I was inspired by the song "The Reck of the Edmond Fitzgerald."
