I took my car down to the waterfront
Put it in park, yeah I got some plans for us
We'll make a boat out of the ocean wood
Then we could float out into the water

I'll drop a line down into the blue sea
You'll close your eyes just like you always wanted
I'll catch a fish bigger than you and me
Now I'm a fisherman just like I always wanted

And be still
Ain't this a nice view of the city?
All those people way up there
They don't know what they're missing

We'll catch a current down to the river mouth
We'll paddle hard, yeah we are gonna make it this time
We'll fuck the flow right up into the lake
Where we could drink, sunburn, jump in

We'll sink the boat, float upon our body fat
Yeah, I've got love handles but I cannot handle love
I'm sinking fast, I'm sinking fast, I need salt
Yeah, I've got love handles but I cannot handle love

Let's go back to the coast, baby,
Westward to the ocean

    My favourite part!

    I love Said The Whale. They're playing at the Biltmore Cabaret on Saturday 6 March in Burnaby BC!!
