THE SHIP OF FOOLS

There’s a boy out there tonight
And he’s lonely like me
He’s got a crowd in his head
And he’s lost at sea
Let’s drink to the farmers
And the wealthy men too
Let’s drink to the women
And the sad things they do
All aboard son we’re sailing
Far away from these bar stools
Disrespect must be paid
On the ship of fools
There’s a girl I remember
Her name’s Alice Dupont
But she got lost between needs
And the things that I want
Let’s drink to the pirates
And the losers like me
Let’s drink to dear Alice
Who is glad to be free
All aboard son we’re sailing
Far away from these bar stools
Where insanity rules
On the ship of fools
Go grab your coat boy
And fetch one for me
Let’s go see the world
And be home in time for tea
Your daddy was once like you
And yes he had big dreams too
He never ever felt he was right
But he was brave enough to face the night…
Let’s drink to the mad men
All the things we’ve lived through
Let’s drink to the triumphs
And the failures we knew
All aboard son we’re sailing
Far away from these bar stools
Where your daddy makes sense
On the ship of fools
All aboard son we’re sailing
Far away from these bar stools
Where insanity rules
On the ship of fools
