Oh sea legs please don't fail me now
I pray lord please help me right
This ship today
Cause i can't take much more
Of this strain on my battered hull.

I thought i was tough
I thought i was strong
Thought i could handle anyone who came along

Thought the worth of a boat
In how well it floats
And this old boat won't float for long with all these holes

So i grab both sides with iron will
It's fit for war but weighs too much and starts to fill

Now i'm clutching the sides as long as i can
It's much too cold to swim
And much too deep to stand.

When i started off down this path
I was well aware of the facts
And despite the proof i have vowed to choose
I continue bearing these (?)

I thought i was quick
As smart as a whip
I guess i met my match
Best stiffen up, my lip.

My wit's getting weak
The sea's on the rise
And here i sit exposed
Atop the lying side

I thought i was tough
I thought i was strong
But i can't stay aboard this sinking ship for long

I thought i was quick
Smart as a whip
I guess i met my match this time
I'll take my licks.

And when push always comes to shove
And i feel like enough's enough
And despite the shit-storm that's pounding my home
I walk outside and set off.

Oh sea legs please don't fail me now
Oh sea legs please don't fail me now
