Slow Boat 

always had this dream that I'd go around the world 
in a little boat I had made 
I'd build it out of all the things I found on my way 
and other stuff I'd already saved 

got some wooden boards that I'd tied together 
with old ropes, washed up in the bay 
and some empty bottles would help keep us afloat 
could do with some more, but I think we'll be okay 

if we go down to the water   
and head out to sea 
take this slow boat to china 
just you and me 

the mast I made from a tree trunk I found in a forest 
it was just lying there on the ground 
some sheets stitched together  made a sail, that would take us 
in whatever direction the wind was bound 

if we go down to the water   
and head out to sea 
take this slow boat to china 
just you and me 

I need someone to steer when I'm asleep, would you come with me?  
I need someone to share in this journey, if you come we'll be  
we'll all be at sea 

if we go down to the water   
and head out to sea 
take this slow boat to china 
just you and me 

just you and me, on a slow boat to china 
you and me 
just you and me, on a slow boat to china 
you and me
