"Slowly He Sank To The Bottom of The Sea" is a song in Babes in Toyland. It was sung by Gonzorgo.


We don’t know how to tell you this, Miss Mary.
No, we don’t know how to tell you this at all.
We were 20 leagues at sea,
It was calm as it can be,
When out of the north,
There came a sudden squall.

He was standing at the wheel, Miss Mary.
Across the deck, the mighty ocean roared.
Then, the mizzen broke and fell,
Then, we heard the fellow yell,
As it bashed him down and swept him overboard.

Slowly, slowly, he sank into the sea,
Though we tried to save him, he sank into the sea.
We are bringing you his personal belongings,
And in his hat we found a soggy note.
Though the salty ocean spray somehow washed the words away,
I’ll see if I can decipher what he wrote;

“Darling Mary” he begins, or is that “Dearest”?
Yes, that’s the term he uses, we agree.
The boy goes on and tells how he hopes this finds you well.
It’s too bad he slowly sank into the sea.
Slowly, slowly, he sank into the sea,
with no life preserver, he sank into the sea.

“I am poor,” the letter reads, “and cannot support you.”
“And It’s best that I sail away and set you free.
Noble lady that you are,
You’d be better off by far if you were to marry wealthy Barnaby.”

We advise to forget him now Miss Mary.
Our condolences to you we do extend,
But we’ll blame you not, my dear,
If you care to shed a tear for the way he met his most untimely end.
Slowly, slowly, he sank into the sea,
To the very bottom, he sank into the sea.
