The Lyrics

not a funny parody, something I wanted to say
Fishin in the my little boat
I just set my woman out to float
Wearin' a happy grin
Cause she's never comin' back again

I'm sittin' in a boat on the bay
Watchin' her body float away
I'm sittin' in a boat on the bay
Doin' crime

I left my home in Modesto
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Cuz I've got Amber to live for
It looks like Lacy has to go away

Sittin' in a boat on the Bay
Watchin' her body float away
Sittin' in a boat on the Bay
Doin' crime

Looks like she'd go out to sea
That's where I wanted her to be
I can't do much when tides won't take her
So I guess I have lost the game, listen

The water didn't hide her bones
Prosecutor will not leave me alone
To prison will I roam
Will they make a cell my home?

She drifted near a rock in the Bay
Rescuers found her, one bright day
I might be sittin' in a cell far away
Doin' time

This may work out to be Scott's swan song. Well done Royce.
