A Sailors Christas lyrics

(jimmy buffett, roger guth)
A sail on the horizons got a land fall rendezvous
The captain steers a well known course he steers her straight and true
As he trims the sheets he sings a song he learned on boats and bars
A sailor spends his christmas in a harbour neath the stars

Hes traveled through the doldrums, typhoons and hurricanes
Hes logged a million soggy miles, with water on his brain
But christmas is the season better suited for dry land
Hell tell some lies, meet some spies and dance barefoot in the sand

A sailor spends his christmas in a harbour on the hook
Cali, calais no work today, lets shelve the old log book
The waterfront is reveling, the season has begun
A sailor spends his christmas in a harbour having fun.

Theres a party down at le select all music, rhum and cheers
Faces in the shadows, I havent seen for years
The masts and shrouds are filled with lights neath the waning of the moon
Theres an air of celebration in the realm of king neptune.


Instrumental bridge

Jesus was a fisherman who walked upon the sea
The north pole is the oceans remote frozen balcony
The continents keep drifting but the children sing and play
Cause nothing really matters after all its christmas day
