"The Good Ship" as written by Christopher E O'rourke, Rachael M Mc Nally and Michael F Galinsky....
I got two nights away with you
Some question said "can I sit down and pour you a drink?"
Are you on the boat or off the boat?
'Cause if you want to rock the boat, it's not gonna sink

Last call, New Orleans
I could never even notice you
Seamless tights and Levi jeans
This establishment, I frequent it myself

Where the service is special for the boys in blue
Where the men are men, and the women are too
You're secret's safe with me
Now son, believe me

I got two nights away with you
Some question answered with a hit or a miss
Are you on the boat or off the boat?
And if you want to rock the boat, then give me a kiss

My cabin is the best onboard
I bet you could never notice this one's got a lock on the door
I'd be glad to show you around

Don't be nervous, don't be shy
Doesn't mean you're not tough, sure, you're a tough guy
You're secret, sir, you're good enough
Believe me

Whatever was I thinkin' when I married Christine?
She just wasn't my type, if you know what I mean
She couldn't match up, she couldn't stand tall
I guess it's time for me to make a ship-to-shore call

From a man I'd never met and knew I never thought I'd need
Are the armed beacons with me, I'm in the back seat
I never knew I was lonely, but I guess I got to know me
I was out to sea

Christine, Christine
I must sound rough, I must sound mean
When my tour duty's over, and my feet are on the ground
I'm gonna spend a month or two on this town
