Wait Till Your Boat Goes Down lyrics

Wait till your boat goes down
Thats when youll need me most
Wait till your boat goes down
And youre washed up on some foreign and
Unfamiliar coast

Yachtings fine
Sailing round and round in social circles
In a sea of diamonds and wine
Wait till you need a shoulder
A girls best friends not any consolation
When youre that much older

Skiings grand
Drawing classic lines around the millionaires
And moneymen from switzerland
Wait till you need a shoulder
A girls fox furs wont warm your heart
When youre that much older

And if youre late and man he sees you when youre young and looking good
Watch the big fish swim right out to take the bait you offered like you
Knew they would
Too much caviar only points to middle aged spread
There wont be room for many playboys in your single bed

Wait till your boat goes down
Thats when youll need me most
Wait till your boat goes down
And youre washed up!
