You were taller than Santa and smaller around
We stood on the corner and watched the people hurrying through town
Nighttime had fallen and bruised both his knees
The fork had run off with the spoon and the cheese

Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat

Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat

Stranger than fiction this friction between
All that I say to know that I truly truly mean
Tunelessly talking and tapping our feet
But words are like nickels in the currency of our sweet defeat

Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat

Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat
The moat

You're the wind that blows my sail
You battered me, you battered me

HEATHER:
You're the wind that blows my sail
You battered me, you battered me


SMITH:
Won't you just stay with me
I cannot sleep, I never sleep


CLEARE:
You're okay to someone
You'll never be, never be


Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat

Build a boat
Keep it afloat
There's sharks in the moat
Sharks in the moat
