The Lyrics

More on Costa Concordia and the irresponsible Captain who tried to get away, shirking his responsibility for all souls abound. His song...
Break that ship
Give the guests the slip
Not going back
No one's keeping track

When tragedy comes along
You must skip it
Before the CG comes on strong
You must skip it
When everything's gone wrong
You must skip it

Now skip it
Good escape
Life boat down
Head straight
Row forward
Don't count heads
Try to talk bullsh-t
Its not too late
To skip it
Make excuse

When your cruiser runs aground
You must skip it
Captain, you will go on down
Unless you skip it
Hurry, get away
It's dark, just skip it

Why stay? skip it
Skip it good
Why stay? skip it
Skip it good

Break that ship
Give the guests the slip
Not going back
No one's keeping track

When tragedy comes along
You must skip it
Before the CG comes on strong
You must skip it
When everything's gone wrong
You must skip it

Now skip it
Good escape
Life boat down
Head straight
Row forward
Don't count heads
Try to talk bullsh-t
Its not too late
To skip it

Good escape
Life boat down
Head straight
Row forward
Don't count heads
Try to talk bullsh-t
Its not too late
Make excuse
