A starry night
The moon reflects
On the flotsam and jetsam from the deck
Of our sinking ship
This lovely Tuesday evening

We're going down, it's true
But I fell in love with a girl like you
On a pleasure cruise to the bottom of the sea

Smoke still billows from the stacks
As the bell rings out for the panic attack
And the captain screams all hands to the life boats

We'll save the women & children first-
Then the passengers with the fattest purse,
last of all, the young man and the crew

It seems to me we're doomed
at least I'm here at the end with you
May I kiss your lips so cold and blue?

Lips once warm but now so cold and blue

Cheer up, don't look so sad.
Maybe drowning's not so bad.
Can you tread water for a week or two?
Tread water for a week or two
