A Pirate Looks at Forty lyrics

Mother mother ocean I have heard you call

Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall

Youve seen it all youve seen it all

Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam

And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen

Most of em dream most of em dream

Yes I am a pirate two hundred years too late

The cannons don't thunder there's nothin to plunder

Im an over-forty victim of fate

Arriving too late arriving too late

I've done a bit of smugglin Ive 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 stop wishin got to go fishin

Down to rock bottom again

Just a few friends just a few friends

Just a few friends just a few friends
