The Shipwrecked Sailor
(by Igor Koyfman)
ListenListen

I have the time to think my thoughts
For I have nothing else to do
Or I could move about the boat
Or try again to eat my shoe

And every evening right at five
The sea around me comes alive
The sharks arrive to check on me
And other creatures of the sea

Although I think I'm all alone
Sometimes I hear the mermaid song
And if it matters how that I feel
How can I say that it's not real

And every evening right at five
The sea around me comes alive
The sharks arrive to check on me
And other creatures of the sea

I'm at the mercy of the waves
And I just go with the flow
I have lost count of the days
The sky reflecting in my soul

And every evening right at five
The sea around me comes alive
The sharks arrive to check on me
And other creatures of the sea
