Kevin Ayers – Once Upon An Ocean lyrics
Once upon an ocean
We dream a ship to sail
When it start leaking
We had to learn to bail
All that mattered it was
Keeping the ship afloat
But we couldn't work together
We become a drunken boat
Captain shouted out
Nobody hear him speak. Oh no
Everyone went rushing round going crazy
Trying to find that leak
Waves getting heavier
We don't stand much chance
Then we heard that old familiar music
And we just had to dance

Our ship is sinking but we don't give a damn
No, no, no, no
Our ship is sinking but we don't give a damn
No, no, no, no, no
