Shipwreck Waiting To Happen

A maritime folk-rocker w/ slide solo from the perspective of the concerned onlooker seeing an elder wreck their metaphoric vessel of body and mind from overindulgence advising them to shape up.

Lyrics

"Shipwreck Waiting To Happen"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

It might seem like you’re floating through life like a leaf

But just below the surface there’s a dangerous reef


Some say you've sailed too hard for too long

You're body's all worn out

And some say you'll probably live forever

But to me there ain't no doubt, that


You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

With teakwood that's starting to leak

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

Too young to look like an antique

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

The skipper who's always drunk

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

Get repairs before you get sunk


Some folks say you're fading with time

Your mind ain't what it used to be

But you're sailing off  without a care in the world

On a collision course with destiny, can't you see


You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

With teakwood that's starting to leak

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

Too young to look like an antique

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

The skipper who's always drunk

You're a shipwreck waiting to happen

Get repairs before you get sunk


Well there's a lot of ways you can live your life

You can eat right and exercise

Or live a devil-may-care life of sin

And throw caution to the wind


Some say deep down there's treasure within

It might be grim but you could salvage your soul

If you don't tack soon it may be too late

You're headed straight for a rocky shoal, watch out 'cause


Repeat Chorus
