The Lyrics

I went off campin' with a friend of mine
Went to the lake with a fishin' line
And I soon found that I could not decline
Goin' paddlin' in a swamp of slime

I got a boat from the rental booth
It was an aged water logged canoe
And if I were to go tell you the truth
It gave new meaning to a ship of fools

'Cause I ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
I hit a gator and a rock or two
'Cause I ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
It's like I'm ridin' the Titanic II

My wild flailin' was an awesome sight
Like quadriplegic midgets in a fight
And soon I heard a noise off to my right
Of waterfalls that filled me with fright

I hollered out "Where would I find the brakes?"
But I was in the middle of the lake
And since my life jacket would not inflate
I became resigned to my sorry fate

'Cause I ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
I'm gonna drown without a pontoon
'Cause I ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
To sum it up, I'm completely screwed

Ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
Though I'm paddlin' to Kalamazoo
Ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
The current's gonna pull me to my doom

Ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
Ca-ca-ca-ca-ca can't canoe
Gonnnnnnna sue
