Steel Beach

The ship has tipped
the crew gone
took the water
took the rum
Devil take them all
But it's ok, the sky is blue
and I'm happy on my steel beach

found a lawn chair
put it over the side
and some sheets and towels
making a terry cloth tent
It's hot enough to fry an egg
and sizzle a stone
But it's ok, the waters are green
and I'm content on my steel beach

Got lines in the water
Got nets strung out
Got a row of tarps and buckets
solar stills milking the air for water
Got nothing to do
listening to old songs
It's ok, I'm ok, the sun is setting
and I'll dream here on my steel beach
