"Up Periscope" as written by and Cj Abraham Michael Corcoran....
If I could have a single wish, I'd only wish to never miss it when you wake up and smile. It makes me
Happy when you steal a little kiss before you wake me up to listen to the news for a while and when
You're creeping out of bed I sneak a peek to see just what you were wearing last night or what was
Leftover from ripping off your clothes I check to see that door was closed
As you were turning out the lights

Whoever said romance was over
Roll over
So I can show you
Don't you want me to be the captain of your submarine
Up Periscope
That's what I say
That's just my way
Of saying that I love you (I do)

My life is like a bowl of cherries not so very ordinary overflowing with love, and I could never want
For more unless our two became a four or maybe three if we practice it enough.

Whoever said romance was over
Roll over
So I can show you
Don't you want me to be the captain of your submarine
Up Periscope
That's what I say
That's just my way
Of saying that I love you (I love you)

Now I know that life is hard
I know that love can break your heart
That's just the way that it is
Well baby that's a load of smack
Don't you know I've got your back
What's important is the way that we live
And like that way you like this song
Because it makes you hum along and tap your foot
To the beat
Well that's the way you make me feel
When we're doing it for real
I can feel it from my head to my feet

Whoever said romance was over
Roll over
So I can give you one more change to believe
And hopefully see that I still want you
Don't you want me to be the captain of you submarine
Up periscope
That's what I say
That's just my way of saying that I love you (I love you)

    He's 20 years old. Why is it wrong for a 20 year old to write about sex? And I don't think you got the right message.

    It's about love, and putting love and romance into sex, and how a lot of people have sex without loving their partner.

    Great song. Nice to see Drake writing about more mature things.

    General CommentLove, love, love, love, love, love...

    This song is so amazing. I'm just confused about one line. Maybe someone could help me out?

    'And I could never want for more
    unless our two became a four
    or maybe three
    and if we practice it enough'

    What does that mean in the context of the song? I knoew the 'two' part is about the couple, but what is he talking about exactly?

    Love this song! :) And love Drake. He's an amazing artist.

    General Commenti really like this song and all of drakes music. ok so i do like jesse mccartney who was probably thrown into music but drake actually has the writting talent and he plays the guitar and he actually sounds good live thats what makes him a good artist.

    General Commentthis song is quite dirty, especially because he refers to having a three-some when he says "And I could never want for more
    unless our two became a four
    or maybe three
    and if we practice it enough".

    if any other person sang this song, i might be a little pissed, but since i am 100% in love with drake bell, i'll let this one slip. and i agree tetsco, he can be the captain of my submarine any day.
