Beautiful Land

Beautiful Land

The ship is lost all that is left is us
and all that we can trust
is that this lifeboat will keep us afloat

Sharks are close
to taste what they love the most
ready to brag and boast
how much they ate down
so pull on the oars, there’s…

Land soon, where we can stand soon
bring on the band, jazz hands
showtime again
and when the music’s playing loud
we’ll remember all who drowned
oh land, beautiful land, where are you now

Food’s all gone can’t tighten this belt no more
sucked all the water from
this rusty old mouthpiece
and it tasted quite salty
give us a song
help keep our spirits strong
been out in this heat so long
don’t know which way is north
just got to believe there’s

Land soon, where we can stand soon
bring on the band, jazz hands
showtime again
and when the music’s playing loud
we’ll remember all who drowned
oh land, beautiful land, where are you now

As I sink slowly down
with tuba in hand
I touch the land
ocean floor sand
here you are now
