Little seas can be big seas
To the wrong or long of sights
But the Mediterranean
Looks like aspirin tonight
The Doctor told me the chemist
He had nothing for my plights
But the Mediterranean
Looks like aspirin tonight
This ocean puts in motion
All our wildest Crusoe thoughts
Turns brain to Kontiki
When it's always been left in port
I'd rather be cemented
In deep blue building site
'Cause drugs can get you higher
Little seas can be big seas
To the wrong or long of sights
But the Mediterranean
Looks like aspirin tonight
The Doctor told me the chemist
He had nothing for my plights
But the Mediterranean
Looks like aspirin tonight
This ocean puts in motion
All our wildest Crusoe thoughts
Turns brain to Kontiki
When it's always been left in port
I'd rather be cemented
In deep blue building site
'Cause drugs can get you higher
