Sailing in a Ship of Fools (song lyrics)

Song Lyrics

Song lyrics for acoustic guitar ( alt C,G,D)

Any given Monday you get outta bed 

Shaving in the shower race a yellow light red

Sitting In an office like a Little plastic egg

Praying to make a living

but The Man isn't giving 

A raise to a guy like youuuuuuuuu

Sailing in a ship of fools

Sailing in a ship of fools

Sailing in a ship of fools


Once upon a time on a little mountain side

There was a little girl who's daddy was alive 

They danced little dances and they played school

Till one day

they cops took him away

For stealing many bags of jewwwwwwwls

Sailing in a ship of fools

Sailing in a ship of fools

Sailing in a ship of fools


There was an old man  every day in the park

Who talked to the pigeons

and people called him stark

Like a loooooooooooooon....

But what they really didn't didn't know

The mans a war hero

shot  five times 

To keep alive

his platoooooooon....

Sailing in a ship of fools 

Sailing In a ship of fools

Success vs Contributions

Appearances vs essence. No matter how far you rise or fall, everyone has had their moments of outstanding offerings. It gets lost way to quickly and in judgments based on appearnces. (Oddly, I was just thinking about that earlier today). - slc

Powerful write great song i

Powerful write great song i had my own melody but very very idicative of the dismissive vernacular permiating society.

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS
