ROCK THAT BOAT

 

There’s an ocean in my head

I’ve been floating around in silhouette 

my boat’s off course and I forget 

that I never learned how to swim 

and I don’t like getting wet

 

But I’ve been starring in the deep too long

I can see the beach when it should be gone 

dipping in my feet at the break of dawn 

and the water is warm

 

So I’m gonna rock that boat

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

 

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat or sink it

 

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm 

 

I feel like I started this game too late

like I was guarding myself from my own fate 

i got a false start to the race 

and I’m spending all my time 

trying to pick up the pace

 

 

But I’ve been waiting in the wings too long

show me a stage and I’ll shine strong

rip me out a page to get my thoughts 

into songs

 

 

So I’m gonna rock that boat

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

 

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat or sink it

 

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm 

 

If everybody’s in full colour

then I’m still Black & White 

I don’t think I could get Greener

oh even if i tried to catch up 

I’d be out of breathe

a runner in a race smoking cigarettes

a CD player with an old cassette 

I don’t want to get shipwrecked

 

 

So I’m gonna rock that boat

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

 

I’m gonna rock that boat 

rock that boat

rock that boat or sink it

I’m gonna rock that boat or sink it

 

mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm
