"Boat in Water"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Boat in water,
Wooden and sailed miles from land.
Boat in water,
Wouldn't find no golden sands.
Not showboaty,
Tiny fragile sampan,
Far from ocean liner,
And this boat leaks,
Boat in water.
Boat in water,
Here is a seashell that I found.
Boat in water,
Here comes a swell; we're goin' down.
There's no beach here,
Oh shite! We'll get damp, an'
Gargle in the briner.
Now we've breached here.

JD, thanks for all the votes; your running commentary very funny, but short-lived. Michael, I'll enjoy my day in the 5 slot before you vault ahead again.
