David Crosby – Mutiny lyrics

And the blue bird over my head
Is waiting for the sea to dry
And the farmer standing on the bridge
Is hoping that the fish will fly

And the boat on the bay
Is waiting for the cloud to cry
Mutiny at Sailboat Bay
Mutiny, so far away

And the cannibals are waiting on the edge
To eat the meat that they can smell
And the monkeys standing in line
Can do the two step very well

On the gang plank one at a time
A story for the waves to tell about
Mutiny at Sailboat Bay
I said mutiny, so far away

With the ice man cooling the wind
The coastline can't be very far
With the shore man rowing behind
We'll find our way beneath the stars

But the captain sat there and grinned
And he set the sail for Shangrila
It's mutiny at Sailboat Bay
Mutiny, so far away
