lyrics

Little boy, you were born into a rocking boat
you were born in the summertime, into this rented house
I hope that you don't mind a little mess in here
we have tried to make it disappear into the thin air

I thought by now I would have sorted my life out
arranged it into little drawers, shaven of all my horns
I really thought that I would never be afraid ever again
I would be working just for laughs
while the morning sun sings promises of happy days to come

We can try not to see the worst in life,
not to see the burst of night, not to see the men who fight
over silly things that noone really cares about
I guess all that I can do is to give you a good start
into this world that we don't seem to know that much about

Little boy, I was born into a rocking boat
I was born in the summertime, into a small town house
I hope that you don't mind that I'm still a mess
I really tried to do my best to make it a little less
and while the morning sun sings promises of happy days to come

We can try not to see the worst in life,
not to see the burst of night, not to see the men who fight
over silly things that noone really cares about
I guess all that I can do is to give you a good start
into this world that we don't seem to know that much about

Little boy, you were born into a rocking boat
you were born in the summertime, into this rented house
I hope that you don't mind a little mess in here
we have tried to make it disappear into the thin air

I thought by now I would have sorted my life out
arranged it into little drawers, shaven of all my horns
I really thought that I would never be afraid ever again
I would be working just for laughs
while the morning sun sings promises of happy days to come
