lyrics

You wouldn't call me flower
If you knew what I had done
You stayed up through the night
To go and check on everyone
It always makes me wonder
How you never lost your way
And would you stick around
If she was asking you to stay?

So many different people
Who were glad to take your name
I'll listen to your stories
And I'll try to do the same
You told me you were strong
Inside the hospital that night
You knitted him a uniform
To make him see the light

She runs
She runs a tighter ship than me
Oh, Captain Liebherr
She runs
She runs a tighter ship than me
Oh, Captain Liebherr

Her husband bought her sandwiches
And kissed her on the lips
The Captain said that he could stow away aboard her ship
I saw them sail away
As I was watching from the pier
She told me they'd be back for me again
This time next year

She runs
She runs a tighter ship than me
Oh, Captain Liebherr
She runs
She runs a tighter ship than me
Oh, Captain Liebherr
