The Lyrics

You've never known how much I really love you.
Now you will know. And if they hear, who cares?

You know this old boat does leak; it
Is now swamping in this swell: thar she blows.

Wet me lisp into your ear
The words I've longed to say, "Dear,
I'm in love with you."

For these years I've kept my secret.
Now no reason not to tell.
Down we go.

Are sometimes at sea for years
And sometimes it turns 'em queer,
Breaking love's taboos.

I had a secret; now I leak it to
This startled member of the crew.

Into his sweet ear my secret
I had for so long to quell.
Now he knows.

Do I wish there were a pier.
That would mean land had appeared.
And landlubbers too.
But I view
Naught but blue.

[Fade out on gurgling sounds]

I'm not surprised Johnny D likes this one. Of course, these boats are falling apart because the longshoremen are all sitting around comparing...
