                A lovely little song about cannibalism, enjoy!

    F                 C
    After the airship crashed
Dm                Am
After we lost the compass
After the radio went dead

We shot and ate the horses
       F                      C
    We marched through deadly swamps
    Dm                 Am
    Inside a limestone cave
      F       G     C
    I found a human skull
             Am      F       G     C
        Yes, Mary, I found a human skull

 The captain caught a fever
    we tied him to a tree
    We stared into the fire
    And tried not to hear his screams

I killed a tiny antelope
    not scared by my approach
    we turned it over dying flames
     ass we huddled in the gloam
        Yes Mary, we huddled in the gloam

We built a raft from skin and bones
    Only five could safely float
    the others stood upon the shore
    they screamed and threw sharp stones
        Yes Mary, they threw the sharpest stones

But how the sea did spin us
    How the waves did roar
    The captain jumped into the storm
    then we were but four

one by one we chose our straws
    till only I remained
    but Mary you are with me now
    all around me in the waves
        Yes Mary, you are in the waves
