This is the good ship lifestyle
All my friends jumped ship
I elect me the captain
This is the loneliest voyage
I've ever been on
Up in the crow's nest
Over there! I see land!
First mate? There is no first mate
This is the good ship lifestyle
(Chorus)
Sail away from the world
Sail away from the world
So steer a course
A course for nowhere
And drop the anchor
My little empire
I'm going nowhere
This is the good ship lifestyle
I'm going nowhere
This is the good ship lifestyle
I'm going nowhere
This is the good ship lifestyle
I fly my very own flag
TV dinners for one
At the captain's table
Repel all boarders
Draw the curtains tighter
Where's the crew? There is no crew
This is the good ship lifestyle
(Repeat chorus)

    General Commenti wish i had a list of all the (what i believe to be) names of the boats before and after the song.

    anyways i believe this song is about a sailor who has gone mad or he wants to get away from the troubles of everyday life. he is "sailing away from the world" which could be losing touch with reality or escaping everyday life in order to be his own captain and wanting to make his own decisions. and he has no predetermined destination "i'm going nowhere."

    after seeing pirates of the caribbean this reminds me of jack sparrow.
