The Lyrics

The cruiser’s fate was drift about;
power and water ran out.
People walk the deck and moon;
tugs don’t get ’em home too soon.

Lotsa dumps are hangin’ out
of the bowls, drop on the grout.
Passengers crap off the aft;
boat afloat with turds—a raft.
Gross is the cloacal craft.
Hope, more, found in a life raft.

This hasn’t been a good trip,
drifting on the poo ship.
For all these people, worse than being bored—
can’t plop waste in o’erflow throne.

Ship of stools, ship of stools!

[shatty shanty interloode]

The cruiser’s fate a shipty rout.
Odor streams into the snout—
people flock to deck and swoon.
Drugs like Imodium, a boon!

Ship of stools. . . .

Shite on board—
ship’s got reeking rooms
soiled from behinds. . .
don’t wanna climb on board!!!!

JAB - And when they reached Mobile, they made the ship wait outside the harbor until nightfall. After all, the cruise line was avoiding unfavorable publicity. Good telling of The Voyage Of The Damned. ;D

Your dingy sense of humor really floats my boat!
