THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER


I ALWAYS WONDER ABOUT
SO I TOOK A TRIP TO FIND OUT
SAILING THE SEA TACKLING THE WAVES
AND I'M STILL STAYING BRAVE
CONTINUING TO FIND OUT
THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER
THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER
I HEARD ABOUT
I ONLY HAVE ANOTHER COUPLE
OF HUNDREDS MILES TO GO
FOLLOWING THAT NORTH STAR
ONE THAT LOOKS SO NEAR BUT SO FAR
AS THE WAVES ARE GETTING WORST
MAKING IT HARD TO STAY ON COURSE
JUST TO FIND OUT THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER
THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER I HEARD ABOUT
AS THE NIGHT GETTING COLD
AND I DON'T FEEL SO YOUNG
MY BODY SORE AND I'M FEELING OLD
BUT I'M GONNA GET THE JOB DONE
TO SAIL TO THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER
THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER I HEARD ABOUT
AND SOON I'M GONNA FIND OUT
AS THE RAIN CAME
THE WEATHER QUICKLY CHANGE
I HAVE TO SAIL THROUGH IT
I WAS PRAYING TO GOD I WASN'T READY TO DIE
BUT BIT BY BIT THE WAVES WERE SO HIGH
KNOCKING ME ON DOWN AND IN TO THE SEA
WHERE I WAS TRYING TO SWIM AROUND
BUT THE TIDE WAS TAKING ME AWAY
AND MY BOAT NO LONGER AT MY SIDE
I THOUGHT I WAS GONNA DIE
MY EYES STARTED TO CLOSE
MY LIPS TURNING BLUE
STRAIGHT DOWN TO MY FINGER TIPS
WHILE THE TIDE TOOK ME FURTHER
OUT OF THE SEVEN SEAS OF WONDER
AND BACK TO THE SHORE
MAYBE IT'S JUST A MYSTERIOUS
WHERE YOU CAN'T FIND OUT
