lyrics

SEA LEGS


Steamboat mouth and rowboat ass
Sailboat fuel for brains
I’ve got a vision of goin’ fishing
In the Mediterranean

From Cyprus to Crete
Then just up the street
To the isle of Lesbos

Watching the dolphins
Put on their show
Just like I’m Jacques Cousteau

I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land
I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land

Someday I pray I will navigate
The Intracoastal Waterway
Like a swan from the Manasquan
To Miami Bay

From Key West to Cuba
Then on to Aruba
I'd sail like Jimmy Buffet
In my mind

With a Yo Ho Ho
and Martinique rum
Hoist anchor &
I will unwind

I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land
I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land

Singing a sea chantey in the city
Singing a sea chantey in the city

Just because I don’t have
Both oars in the water
And my engines do not pack
All that much horsepower,

It doesn’t mean the ocean green
Won’t be my just reward
Fishing for sport from port to port,
From port and from starboard

I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land
I’ve got my sea legs,
Got my sea legs,
On dry land

Singing a sea chantey in the city
Singing a sea chantey in a land-locked city

(There is a sea of aquamarine
And there are gray cetaceans
There is a Yellow Submarine
And a boatload of Haitians)
