"I'm on a Boat" as written by Faheem Rasheed Najm, Adam Blake Cherrington, Andrew D. Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone....
Aw shit, get your towels ready it's about to go down (shorty, yeah)
Everybody in the place hit the fucking deck (shorty, yeah)
But stay on your motherfucking toes
We running this, let's go

I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat) I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat)
Everybody look at me
'Cause I'm sailing on a boat (sailing on a boat)
I'm on a boat (I'm on a boat) I'm on a boat
Take a good hard look at the motherfucking boat (boat, yeah)

I'm on a boat motherfucker take a look at me
Straight floatin' on a boat on the deep blue sea
Busting five knots, wind whipping out my coat
You can't stop me motherfucker cause I'm on a boat

Take a picture, trick (trick) I'm on a boat, bitch (bitch)
We drinking Santana champ, 'cause it's so crisp (crisp)
I got my swim trunks and my flippie-floppies
I'm flipping burgers, you at Kinko's, straight flipping copies

I'm riding on a dolphin, doing flips and shit
The dolphin's splashing, getting everybody all wet
But this ain't Sea World, this is real as it gets
I'm on a boat, motherfucker, don't you ever forget

I'm on a boat and, it's going fast and
I got a nautical themed Pashmina Afghan
I'm the king of the world on a boat like Leo
If you're on the shore, then you're sure not me-oh

Get the fuck up, this boat is real!

Fuck land, I'm on a boat, motherfucker (motherfucker)
Fuck trees, I climb buoys, motherfucker (motherfucker)
I'm on the deck with my boys, motherfucker (yeah)
This boat engine make noise, motherfucker

Hey ma, if you could see me now (see me now)
Arms spread wide on the starboard bow (starboard bow)
Gonna fly this boat to the moon somehow (moon somehow)
Like Kevin Garnett, anything is possible

Yeah, never thought I'd be on a boat (let's go)
It's a big blue watery road (yeah)
Poseidon look at me, oh (all hands on deck)

Never thought I'd see the day
When a big boat coming my way
Believe me when I say, I fucked a mermaid

I'm on a boat, I'm on a boat
Everybody look at me 'cause I'm sailing on a boat (whoa)
I'm on a boat, I'm on a boat
Take a good hard look at the motherfuckin' boat (shorty, shorty, yeah)

    General CommentI think this song has a deeper meaning, you know it's about the feeling you get when somebody has betrayed you and you feel this feeling of not being worth anything. It's like first love and all you know, it's hard to explain...

    sorry, just trying to be pretentious

    Song MeaningYou guys are over simplifying this song. Like most rap songs, its meaning is much deeper than it appears.

    It's clear by the theme of this song that the boat is a metaphor for Jesus Christ. No one can stop them,
    and everyone should take notice (as they claim in the lyrics) because their faith is so firmly planted.

    The references about the experience on the boat be wonderful can be equated to happiness that leading Christian
    life brings, and the sadness and emptiness the opposite imposes.

    Near the end of the song the lyrics suggest that they thought they'd never be on a boat, which is obviously a silly
    thing to say since "being on a boat" in not a difficult goal to reach :P With these lyrics they are emphasizing that
    its a silly thing to think you can't or won't be accepted to the Kingdom of the Lord. All you need to do is accept
    Jesus Christ into your life, you can find out more at thetruthforyouth.com

    Song MeaningAs said before, this is simply a brilliant piss take of Akon in his video for i'm so paid...

    youtube.com/…

    ...and it applies equally to numerous other dumb bling bling gangsta rap/RnB artists that would rather show off how much worthless bling they can afford rather than make decent music.

    The ironic thing being that this Lonely Island track is actually better than the music of all of those artists put together!! - it really is a very well written, well arranged piece of "pop" music.

    - and don't get me wrong, I know to many people "pop music" has a bad name - but it's dumb people buying into the crap from the likes of Akon that give it one. Genuinely GOOD pop music does exist, but it takes talent to create, not gangsta status & bling.

    THEY'RE ON A BOAT MOTHERFUCKER, DON'T YOU EVER FORGET!!!
    ..and they're taking the living piss whilst displaying far more talent than all those dumb materialistic gangsta idiots put together.

    BRILLIANT!
