De Hoffnung weer hunnert Dag unnerwegs,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Se seil von Hamborg na Valparais,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:
Its a long, a long, a long time ago,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Its a long, a long, a long time ago,
To my hoday, ho.

2. Se seil so good und se seil so hart,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Se har so'ne goode kostbare Fracht,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

3. Un as de Ol nu flucht und gnaddert,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Dor keem de Duevel oever de Reeling kladdert,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

4. Wenn mi in tein Dag na'n Kanal du bringst,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Denn kriggst Du mien Seel, so wohr as du stinkst,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

5. De Pott leep neegentein Mielen toletzt,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Dor harr de Duevel de Skyseils bisett,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

6. Un as he nun in'n Kanal keem to Stell,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Dar seeg de Duevel "Nu her mit de Seel.",
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

7. Dar seeg de Ol "Nu lat di man Tied",
To my way, hay, hoday.
"We goht to Anker bi Kap San Patric",
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

8. De Duevel de weer fr Freid all ganz weg,
To my way, hay, hoday.
He leep op de Back, sett de Anker op Slip,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

9. De ole Timmermann har grote Freid,
To my way, hay, hoday.
He har den Duevel sien Steert mit vertaeut,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:

10. Un as den Anker nu suust op den Grund,
To my way, hay, hoday.
Dor suust de Duevel mit, de Swienehund,
It's a long time ago.
Kehrreim:


The story in short: the captain promised his soul to the devil if he would carry his ship to the Panama channel in ten days. But when they arrived, the carpenter tied the devil's tail to the anchor. Thanks to Almut Koerting for this synopsis.
