"I loved you and you know it
So I wrote a song just like Farley Mowat
For a little while I was your dual lover
I knew this would happen one way or another

Looks like I'm getting ready to swim
The chances of him walking the plank
Are looking pretty slim

Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it doesn't look like this boat's gonna float
Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it won't float

She said, "I hope you have some agility,"
"I hope you have some aquatic ability."
We all know this is your ship, my dear
So don't say a word, it's perfectly clear

I've got my suit on, I'm going in
With a heart as fragile as mine
Why did we even begin?

Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it doesn't look like this boat's gonna float
Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it won't float

I've found new days of sunshine
I've found new days of sunshine
I've found new days of sunshine

Looks like we're in for nasty weather
But if you're meant to be
Then you'll stick together
Don't come crying to me
When your horizons turn dark and gray, babe

Because I've found new days of sunshine
I've found new days of sunshine
I've found new days of sunshine

Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it doesn't look like this boat's gonna float
Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it won't float

Cause there's three of us in a boat
Cause there's three of us in a boat
Cause there's three of us in a boat
And it won't float"
