Default Cruising, Just Cruising

This is the first cruise verse I ever composed.

Cruising

We are eating our way from the dock through the bay
Cruising out on the fabulous sea.
We're a giant afloat, a magnificent boat
As we top off out dining with brie.

We are living like kings, and we drink frozen things
As we lounge on the deck in the sun.
Wer put oil on our backs, then they offer us snacks.
We never had so much pure fun.

We will drink at the bars and dance under the stars
To the music of joy and romance.
Then we see the fine shows, and it's time now, lord knows
To give the late buffet a chance.

When we stop at the ports, then we all don our shorts
And watch all the natives at play.
Then we eat all the dishes made from tropical fishes
And some of wish we could stay.

We have lunched on the sea, had the afternoon tea
With cookies and ice cream as well.
Then, at dinner, partake of both lobster and steak,
Those last three desserts all were swell.

Then, at last, to home port, oh the cruise was too short,
And how the time just flew by.
And it just isn't right how our clothes fit too tight,
And we just cannot understand why!

Paul B.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
