She set sail with six and only six,
but a mere five did stand the watch.
The sixth was free to say what he pleased,
as long as he stayed within his notch.
They all knew the sixth and depended on the sixth,
because he kept them straight and true.
But, on the tenth day the sixth mate did say,
without a word "he's through."
The five replied in one great plea,
"Auto I will lay my hammer upon YOU!"
With out a moan, just a series of beeps,
Auto pointed us to Honolulu.
