Boats

















I can't help it... I love Jimmy Buffet-

Boats to Build
Jimmy Buffet

It's time for a change
I'm tired of that same ol same
The same ol words the same ol lines
The same ol tricks and the same ol rhymes

Days precious days
Roll in and out like waves
I got boards to bend I got planks to nail
I got charts to make I got seas to sail

I'm gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It'll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I've got boats to build

Sails are just like wings
The wind can make em sing
Songs of life songs of hope
Songs to keep your dreams afloat
I'm gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It'll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I've got boats to build

Shores distant shores
There's where I'm headed for
Got the stars to guide my way
Sail into the light of day

I'm gonna build me a boat
With these two hands
It'll be a fair curve
From a noble plan
Let the chips fall where they will
Cause I've got boats to build

gillian hates jimmy buffet. in fact, if she sees this, she may hate you. so if you start getting anonymous hate mail, don't say i didn't warn you.

yeah- I find you either love him or hate him. Just keep her off the computer for a day or so.

hate to bring this up, but don't you have to ask permission to post someone's poem,song,etc,?

Windy Lampson said...

I don't think so- I'm crediting him for it- I don't know, though.

spigo said...

is this your subtle way of proposing to me, jeff?

Jeff said...

is that your subtle way of saying yes?

hey Glen, do you think we should tell these two they have been married nearly a year now, or do you think they will figure it out eventually?
