lyrics

Well they say we’re heading for stormy weather
Say I’ve lost my course and I’ve lost my tether
Yeah, when we set sail you know the sun was shining
Well the ship was strong and the weather was fine

And they say we’re heading for serious weather
Say I’ve lost my course and I’ve lost my tether
Yeah, it’s too big a ship for a little man like me
Well the say I shoulda not put out to sea
But I’ll keep my course and I’ll keep my tether
‘Cos I think I’ve got my ship together

And if you’re sailing across the sea
You gotta sail in a straight line
You gotta keep your face turned to the wind
Don’t stall on every squall you find
And if you think you’ve had enough
More than anyone should ever have to take
You better nail your colours to the mast
Cos this old boat ain’t got no breaks

And they say we’re heading for shit bad weather
Yeah when these shits talk they talk shit together
They sling their shit as I come sailing by
Like they think that shit is going to fly
But I’ll keep my course and I’ll keep my tether
‘Cos I think I’ve got my ship together

And if you’re sailing across the sea
You gotta sail in a straight line
You gotta keep your face turned to the wind
And don’t stall on every little squall you find
And if you think you’ve had enough
More than any man should ever have to take
You better nail your colours to the mast
Cos this old boat ain’t got no breaks
