The Lyrics

Here are some of my experiences of last summer - sailing is not all wine and roses. There is a certain limit when sailing ceases to be fun and becomes work, and another limit where it ceases to be work and becomes survival. We crossed that latter limit twice last summer - we had abysmally bad luck with weather. The original song can be found here.
Sailing at the high seas and a low is approaching
Skyline is so dark and the sea is like poaching
Need to strike the sails so I will not risk the broaching
Now it's time to memorize what daddy did coaching

This boat of mine -
This weather gets me annoyed
This boat of mine
'Cause I don't wanna be destroyed
This boat of mine
All the fun is now devoid
This boat of mine
You've gotta help me avoid
that...
Rainstorm - Here I go!
Rainstorm - Flying low
Rainstorm - Wind's forty knots!
Rainstorm - I am going nuts!

Can't get no peace with this wobbling and motion
Wave height is five metres and it's boiling the ocean
Storm must be Force Eight - or higher, that is the notion
Will the hull endure or will there be an implosion ?
in...
This boat of mine -
This weather gets me annoyed
This boat of mine
'Cause I don't wanna be destroyed
This boat of mine
All the fun is now devoid
This boat of mine
You've gotta help me avoid
that...
Rainstorm - Here I go!
Rainstorm - Flying low
Rainstorm - Wind's forty knots!
Rainstorm - I am going nuts!

Quite an adventurous and interesting parody tale. So vividly descriptive that I nearly got seasick. Perhaps, a bit anti-climatic would be the only adverse criticism.

I DKTOS...but I like this. You are the Jean Sebelius of parodies. :) (Gee...I hope you are indeed Finnish!)
