SHE

Why A Ship Is Called “SHE”
A ship is called “she” because there is always a great deal
of bustle about her; there is usually a gang of men about’,
she has a waist and stays; it takes a lot of paint to keep
her looking good;
it is not the initial expense that breaks you,
it is the upkeep; she can be all decked out;
it takes an experienced man to handle her correctly,
and without a man at the helm, she is absolutely
uncontrollable. She shows her topsides, hides her bottom
and, when coming into port, always heads for the buoys.

  1. Did you realize that a Frenchman had written this song for you? Moja ukochana piosenka “Shi” Ona – tyle mi przypomina z moich mlodych lat. Śpiewał mi tę piosenkę ktoś bardzo drogi, kogo juz nie ma na tym świecie. ale dalej śpiewa ją Aznavour i dlatego bardzo go kocham.
