Ahoy there, all aboard,
This relationship is leaving shore.
Anchors away as I set sail,
Through choppy seas, rain storms and gales.

The sun is rising on the horizon,
As I climb the mast, my heart's capsizing.
From the crow's nest, where the view is best,
I can see she's swimming miles from where I'm casting nets.

I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.
I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.

She's the one that got away.

Electric eels couldn't express what I feel,
This vessel, she sunk cause I was drunk at the wheel.
From port to starboard, man the life boats,
She was taking in water, couldn't keep her afloat.

Apparently no man's an island,
But I'm deserted and hurting, I'm suffering in silence.
We rocked the boat when we skull and cross boned,
Should have listened to my first mate, now I'm all alone.

I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.
I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.

She's the one that got away.

I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.
I know, I know they say there's plenty more fish in the sea,
But that girl was the best catch In 50,000 leagues.

She's the one that got away.
