Lyrics A Pirate Looks at Forty

Mother mother ocean
I have heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters
Since I was three feet tall you've seen it all you've seen it all
Watch the men who rode you switch from sail to steam
In your belly you hold the treasures
Few have ever seen most of them dream most of them dream
Yes I am a pirate two hundred years too late
The cannons don't thunder there's nothing to plunder
I'm an over forty victim of fate arriving too late arriving too late
I done a bit of smuggling
I've run my share of grass
I made enough money to buy Miami
But I pissed it away so fast never meant to last never meant to last
And I have been drunk now for over two weeks
I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
But I got to stop wishing got to go fishing down to rock bottom again
Just a few friends
Just a few friends
I go for younger women lived with several a while
Though I ran them away they'd come back one day
And still could manage a smile it just takes a while it just takes a while
Mother mother ocean after all the years I've found my occupational hazard being my occupations just not around
I feel like I've drowned
Gonna head uptown
I feel like I've drowned
Gonna head uptown
