Poor You lyrics – music by Burton Lane, lyrics by E.Y. Harburg, sung in Ship Ahoy by Frank Sinatra
Poor you, I’m sorry you’re not me
For you will never know what loving you can be
Poor you, you’ll never know your charms
You’ll never feel your warmth, you’re never in your arms

A Life on the Ocean Wave lyrics (1838) music by Henry Russell, lyrics by Epes Sargent, the official march of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, performed in Ship Ahoy
A life on the ocean wave,
A-home on the rolling deep!
Where the scater’d waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.
Like an eagle caged I pine
On this dull, unchanging shore.
Oh give me the flashing brine,
The spray and the tempest’s roar.
