I have often said
That I would like to be dead
In a shark's mouth

A woman swimming under
Her warm breath sending a thunder
Onto parts south

And love is stripped and frayed
Duty is delayed
Until next life

Someone has my mind
Holding it so kind
It is my wife

And my home is the sea
My home is the sea
Look not for me

And my home is the sea
Disaster flies upon me
And I scream

Now we can see the house lights
Colored from a distance
(For a party as a dream ?)

And tumble into me
My arms enfold thee sea
'Cause I'm a strong man

And goodnight love, my tummy
Is round and firm and funny
And that's what I am

And my home is the sea
My home is the sea

And I am under your spell
And you will have me I reckon
And the drowning this town
Is a drowning I welcome

I know nothing and I'm overjoyed
I know nothing and I'm overjoyed
I know nothing and I'm overjoyed

God gave you life and thought
Now it's ours to waste
I have the finest love
And the finest taste

And with the sea air in my lungs
I am home
You are home
