The Lyrics

About the swells and crew—
End of the line.

They were a lot o’ fun to do,
But I’m tirin’
Of wind in wirin.

You know that I cranked out
A few, but I found:
When that tanked-up man shouts,
I’m compelled to bang out one more round.

So I’ll be “Spell”ing you
A few more times
With rhymes.

No can do
More drowned crew,
Gitche Gu’.
It’s Jay who floats my prow.

I’ve done my share;
My Fitzgerald spree’s
Ending now.

What cheers me:

I’ll turn to “Spell” anew—
That song’s so fine!
