Sail my ship on the Seven Seas
Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Ship gets stuck. Trade falls to its knees.
Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Help me out now, won’t you please?
Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Things are always weird when you’re Taiwanese
Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Nothing in Life is Ever Given
Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!

Stuck in the Suez! Stuck in the Suez!
