She plows through the rough sea
Sending ripples into motion
Acting like the key
That unlocks the world of the ocean

Her masts so tall
It’s like nothing is higher
Towering above all
In the ocean’s entire

Even when it’s dark
The world pitch black
She doesn’t stop to park
But stays on her track

Oh Vanguard, Oh Vanguard so mighty and strong
Next time you set sail, take me along
