sonnerie téléphone portable pour Burning ship

Sixty thousand sheep on a burning ship sailing across the deep blue sea
And not a soul in sight and the boiler room caught fire
And the men, the hired men, they set off signals
And nearby boats came by and they rescued them

And off they went on their way to south america from australia
Sixty thousand sheep on the great, great blue sea
And not a soul in sight
For what purpose? for what purpose?

What great things happening on this planet
Huge clusters of animals going up in smoke
Two million cows in great britain, gone in one month
Two million cows, who can separate the cows from the people?

Two hundred elephants found in a clearing
Ghastly silence when they found them
Pregnant cows, baby elephants
And not a soul in sight, in one fell swoop

And then the swoop of swallows as they gather in the fall
Getting ready to prepare to start to begin
To set upon their long, long flight
At what moment, lord, at what precise moment, do they decide?
