The Lyrics

I think that it’s fraught, to go to deep water, uh huh!
I can’t swim and splash like a playful sea otter, uh uh!
Venture out on a boat…crazy!
Venture out into the bay.
Venture out on a boat—hazy,
the cloud-shrouded sky today.

We’re miles from isles, way out on the deep blue sea—uh oh!
We hit a submerged rock that no one could see.
Got a frown on my face today;
wanna pout, but pout-allay.
Gonna drown, gotta call “Mayday!”
Wish things don’t turn out this way.

Boat now ain’t watertight,
and the damn radio ain’t workin’ right.
Find a PFD to save my life,
but they’re broken, will not float.

I’m swishing with fishes—there’s no sharks, I hope!
Were I Catholic, I’d invoke the Pope.

But—goin’ down is this boat—save me!
Goin’ down, and right away!
Chompin’ down: big fish that tastes me.
Become chow have I today.
