The Lyrics

Inspired by one of those Facebook pictures being shared, and I thought it scanned rather well to this tune.
Sometimes life is full of shit
Neverending streams of it
Really gets you down, each little hit
And that creek will rise and rise
Till it's higher than your eyes
That's when you need to show some grit

Chin up, I've been stro-owng
Made it on my own
I'm a Shit Creek survivor
Now I'm paddling home

You once thought I'd fold
Under pressure, just like mould
You say I'm too young, or I'm too old
But there's strength within my head
So I'm coming back instead
Something truly beautiful to behold

Chin up, I've been stro-owng
Now I've really grown
I'm a Shit Creek survivor
Now I'm paddling home

Chin up, I've been stro-owng
Now I don't get thrown
I'm a Shit Creek survivor
Now I'm paddling home

[Instrumental interlude]

Chin up, I've been stro-owng
You won't hear me moan
I'm a Shit Creek survivor
Now I'm high on my throne

Phil - Look on the bright side. You at least had a paddle. Nice work on your "doo-doo canoe" song.

You've drained the upbeat tone of the original really well here, no belly flop in that river.
