Ian McNabb Merseybeast Lyrics

sponsored links
I went down to the fishing hole, with a line and a pole
The ice gave way and I fell in, the police went to inform my next of kin

But I didn't drown I held my breath, I figured that I'd fake my death
As I drifted down the Gulf stream to Miami

I dried off at the blood bank, got a rental with a full tank

Headed south, not even thinking I was jammy

CHORUS
I'm funky and I'm free
This is how I plan to be

I'm a rockin', good-time boy

And I can't contain my joy, I can't contain my joy
VERSE 2
I had a friend who took a wife - did too much junk and lost her life
He ran away to kill the pain - such a shame, he didn't see a train

They found his legs in Wavertree, his arms were in Fazakerley

The Doctors somehow put him back together

Now he lives down in the Dingle, says he's happy being single

Smokes a lot of dope, and rambles on forever
VERSE 3
One day I plan to own a boat, on bright blue water I will float
A good strong woman by my side, across life's sweet ocean we will glide

For the unknown is the wonder, though you're frightened by the thunder

It's the danger that appeals and keeps you going

Though it's hard to know the answers, or the names of all the dancers

Just as long as this delicious wine keeps flowing
