The Lyrics

I must be getting desperate for material.
A freighter sailed out of Wisconsin
Its cargo was packed tight to fit
The first days were quite uneventful
But the whole voyage went quickly to sh..

Sure enough, seas have turned rough
We're gonna make it, our ship is real tough

The cook said "It's too rough to feed you"
As the waves gave the vessel a slap

Patrick - An example of an almost extinct genre of humor...the "he almost said something dirty" song or joke. Check out my posted song "Street Violence" (Sweet Violets) for another illustration. ;D
