lyrics

I never said, never did nothin’ wrong
never said that I could’ve done better
and nothin’ goes too right for me
I find myself always hungry

Black was the ribbon they swear I stolen
it would’ve looked fine in my long black hair
it was my word on hers and you know who the jury heard
I find myself always hungry

On the Lady Penrhyn with a child on my breast
sailing the stars and the 40th parallel
I never been this far from home
And still I am always hungry

A tall Scottish Sir tells me he loves me
Rosanna is also to his pleasin’
he helps where he can but he can’t help that much
we find ourselves always hungry

Almost one year the fishin’ gone thin
blacks all around us is starvin’
I dream of my home, I feel so alone
It’s the curse of us all, always wanting
Rosanna and I always hungry
