That's My Captain

By Lady Susanna

A woman stops Bryn on the street in a marketplace of their current port stop. She asks Bryn who that handsome man is that she saw Bryn with. Brynís only responseÖ "My Captain" and walks away. But sometime about the way the woman asked Bryn made her stop and watch Sinbad walking from merchant to merchant, casually checking out items for sale. A smile lights up Brynís face as she suddenly starts humming the words to a song she heard from somewhere but finds herself creating words to the song that would personalize it for Sinbad. The words go something like this:

(Sung to "Thatís My Baby" by Lari White (country))

See that man walking down the street
Thinks heís tough but he smiles so sweet,
Tight leather pants and a pirateís stance,
Bet youíd like to meet a man like thatÖ
Heís a little crazy
Heís a little wild
He loves to do what ainít allowed
He might talk too slow
And fight too fast
But heíd do any little thing I ask

Thatís my Captain,
Thatís my Captain,
Thatís our diamond in the rough
But Iíll make him shine when I profess my love
Heís a rebel, wild and free
Ainít no one gonna say heís not right for me
Dermott prays heís just a phase Iím going through
But one of these days heís gonna love me too

Thatís my Captain,
Thatís my Captain,
Thatís our diamond in the rough
But Iíll make him shine when I profess my love
Heís an angel Heís a saint
And I donít worry about what he ain't
Cause what he is something fine
And we let him know heís ours all ours.
