Na na na, na, na na na na, na na na na na na na,
Na na na, na, na na na na, na na na na na na na.

October was looming, the fish it was scarce,
They just weren't there for some reason;
"We'll gather the crew," skip Billy Tyne said,
"And we'll make one last trip for the season."

And it's weigh hey, tomorrow they sail,
To the Grand Banks, past the Nose and the Tail;
Chasing the swordfish, from Gloucester they hailed,
The skipper and crew of the Andrea Gail.

The first set the fish were small and so few,
The skipper consulted his maps;
"If we can't find them here we'll sail further east,
And we'll fish off the cold Flemish Cap."

And it's weigh hey, tomorrow they sail,
To the Grand Banks, past the Nose and the Tail;
Chasing the swordfish, from Gloucester they hailed,
The skipper and crew of the Andrea Gail.

The fishing was good, on the Cap it struck hard,
They loaded the hold before long;
Then the skip told them to haul in the gear,
There was news of a storm coming on.

And it's weigh hey, tomorrow they sail,
To the Grand Banks, past the Nose and the Tail;
Chasing the swordfish, from Gloucester they hailed,
The skipper and crew of the Andrea Gail.

They were outside of Sable at the height of the storm,
Plowing through mountainous waves;
And that was the last that ever was heard,
Of the sword-fisher Andrea Gail.

And it's weigh hey, tomorrow they sail,
To the Grand Banks, past the Nose and the Tail;
Chasing the swordfish, from Gloucester they hailed,
The skipper and crew of the Andrea Gail.

And it's weigh hey, tomorrow they sail,
To the Grand Banks, past the Nose and the Tail;
Chasing the swordfish, from Gloucester they hailed,
The skipper and crew of the Andrea Gail.

Na na na, na, na na na na, na na na na na na na,
Na na na, na, na na na na, na na na na na na na,
Na na na, na, na na na na....
