The Lyrics

uh-oh...uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home
i say uh...i say uh...i say uh...i say uh
i say uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home

sailed all night...but de route was dumb
daylight come and dey few dat go home
hit de iceberg and no rescue come
daylight come and dey few dat go home

the final tally, man ?...over fifteen hundred
daylight come and dey few dat go home
trapped in the galley, man...over fifteen hundred
daylight come and dey few dat go home

slide six foot...seven foot...eight foot..jump !
daylight come and dey few dat go home
dive six foot...seven foot...eight foot...plunk !
daylight come and dey few dat go home

uh-oh...uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home
i say uh...i say uh...i say uh...i say uh
i say uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home

a beautiful bunch...but no manana
daylight come and dey few dat go home
even though, there's no piranhas
daylight come and dey few dat go home

slide six foot...seven foot...eight foot..jump !
daylight come and dey few dat go home
dive six foot...seven foot...eight foot...plunk !
daylight come and dey few dat go home

uh-oh...uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home
i say uh...i say uh...i say uh...i say uh
i say uh-uh-uh-oh
daylight come and dey few dat go home

"even though, there's no piranhas"....if Michael Bay directed the movie, there would've been! This was great/bittersweet writing. 555
