Five o' clock

It's five o'clock in the morning
Time to get ready, we're sailing away
It's five o'clock in the morning
Time to get ready to sail

We rise in the morning, sail out on the tide
Silent we slip from the quay
With the gulls overhead and the seals alongside
Proudly we head out to sea


We'll fish in the Minches fair weather or foul
Living our lives on the sea
It's hard and it's ruff and the pay's not enough
But what other life can there be
A trawlerman's plight is to work day and night
Grab an hour's sleep in between
Casting the nets out and hauling them in
Sometimes not a fish to be seen


We'll be cold, tired and hungry and drenched to the skin
When we head back to Stornoway town
With our catch safely landed we'll have a good dram
In The Clachan, The Lewis or The Crown
