Set during the turn of the 20th century, the song tells a tale of hearty dock workers clad in moustaches and a country overflowing with burgeoning exuberance working hand-in-hand to assemble the finest seaworthy vessel ever constructed.

When the craft is completed, it is outfitted with a proud captain and a handful loyal crew members.  They ambitiously set out toward the blue horizon, resolved to conduct ground-breaking research and to explore the mysteries of the glorious sea.

After several days of ardent progress, our adventurers happen upon a particularly deep yet inviting area of the ocean.  Certain that the most fascinating specimens of nature would be found there, the crew prepares to embark on their important fact-finding expedition immediately.  The boat showcases its grandeur by transforming into a submarine, and the crew plunges into the azure abyss.  They encounter wonders never before dreamed of; witness colors from every inch of a rainbow; experience a calm that is at the same instant exhilarating; and behold the elegance, rugged formidability, and awe-inspiring beauty possessed by the sea.

Having conducted what they deem to be sufficient research, the ship ascends to the surface and emerges–glistening in the light of a most triumphant day–boasting a successful maiden voyage.  It returns to the dock, where it is greeted haughtily with cheers and applause.  Good work, everyone.
