DEEP SEA BLUES

Oh, Lordy, I'm commiseratin'
With a hunchback moon over the Golden Gate
I feel like quietly slippin' on over the side
No one's gonna solve this here mystery
Way out here on a moonlit sea
I'm gonna lose myself come the morning tide

'Cause way down, down on the ocean floor
I'm gonna wake up at a brand new door
It's a place they call Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
Where the fish police is standin' guard
Hopin' the krill don't crash this bar
'Because the whales drop in, and you know that can be a crime

             DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
             Hook, line and sinker I done fell for you

Ol' Benny the Bluefin's blowin' on the clarinet
Marlin Brando's on the bottom end
And Patty Perch will croon until you cry
Got an octopus slingin' cards
To Danny Dolphin and Razor the Shark
While Crusty the Crab is blowin' on a pair of dice

             DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
             Hook, line and sinker I done fell for you

Davey Jones rattled some bones
When he opened his locker in the back
Passin' out bottles of rye to me and you
But until he came along
We was just singin' this sad ol' song
But everybody likes the DEEP SEA BLUES

Oh, Lordy, I'm exhilaratin'
With the silvery moon under the Golden Gate
I floated on up to the surface just to see the mornin' light
Now I got me a brand new philosophy
That say "Go with the flow" and "Blow with the breeze"
And hold me a table for two at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice

             DEEP SEA BLUES, DEEP SEA BLUES
             Since you pulled up anchor and sailed out of view
             I say "That's alright, that's alright bye and bye
             Hold me a table for two at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
             Hold me a table for two at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
             I said make that a table with a view at Neptune's Pair-O-Dice
