Songs Of The Sea

from by Men With Day Jobs

lyrics

Down at the old folks’ café, singing my songs for free
- a corny cornucopia crept up all round me
Terribly
trapped in a time warp, taken aback to see bearded men
in land-locked suburbia, singing songs of the sea
I played the young pretender, kept my clean-shaven cool –
I’m not a Working Class Hero, not a nostalgic fool

Determined to stay original, decided what I should be -
o bearded, braided brontosaurus, singing songs of the sea -
Yo Heave Ho (don’t wanna go…) oh no
So I escaped unbearded, holding my hard head high -
too much oldie-worldie stuff for this New Age Guy 

But I felt the ocean rising, deep in the heart of me -
and all at once found myself singing those songs of the sea …
Yo heave ho!
