song lyric – Shipwreck Blues

Shipwreck Blues

by Mary Jacob, April 2009

Shipwreck blues, whoa I got ‘em

Gonna swim on down to the very bottom.

Out on the boat, heard a crack,
Little did I know I would never come back.
Looking out a porthole, what do I see?
Little bitty fishes looking back at me.

Shipwreck blues, whoa I got ‘em

Gonna swim on down to the very bottom.

Seaweed tangled up in my hair,
Sharks are circling around everywhere.
Fishnet stockings, got fishnet shoes,
Fishnet around my neck like a noose.

Shipwreck blues, whoa I got ‘em

Gonna swim on down to the very bottom.

Oh babe, I got a date with Davey,
Davey Jones’ locker and I don’t mean maybe.
Whoa, babe, I got a date with Davey,
Davey Jones’ locker and I don’t mean maybe.

Gotta go down, gotta go down, gotta go down to the bottom.

Gotta go down, gotta go down, gotta go down to the bottom.

Gonna swim swim swim swim swim swim swim swim swim.

Gonna swim swim swim swim swim swim swim swim swim.

But wait just a minute, I don’t wanna go there.
I wanna swim back up, gotta get some air.
Gonna swim swim swim up for air.
Swim swim swim up for air.

Shipwreck blues, whoa, I got ‘em,

Gonna swim right up from the very bottom.

Shipwreck blues, whoa, I got ‘em,

Gonna swim right up from the very bottom.

Shipwreck blues, whoa, I got ‘em,

Gonna swim right up from the very bottom.
