This song is about a sailor's favorite topic, getting off work. Striking the bell meant signaling the end of the watch, meaning the sailors could go below to their bunks for their 4 hour break. However, bad weather usually mean "all hands" which meant no one got a break until the captain signaled all clear.

Lead vocals: Craig Lutke, Bells: Ted Dossey
