Follow in my wake, you've not that much at stake
For I have plowed the seas, and smoothed the troubled waters
Come along let's have some fun, the hard work has been done
We'll barrel roll into the sun, just for starters

Just for starters, barometer is my soup
I'm descended from a deck hand on a sloop
I travel on the song lines that only dreamers see
Not known for predictability

Come and follow in our wake, you've not that much at stake
For we have plowed the seas, and smoothed the troubled waters
Come along let's have some fun, seems our work is done
We'll barrel roll into the sun, just for starters

Sail the main course, sail it in a simple sturdy craft
Keep her well stocked with short stories and long laughs
Go fast enough to get there, but slow enough to see
Moderation seems to be the key

Constantly searching
Oh my eyes have seen some horizons
And I've crossed the oceans
For more than just thrills
No I'm not the first
Won't be the last
You lust for the future
But treasure the past

Follow in my wake, you've not that much at stake
For I have plowed the seas, and smoothed the troubled waters
Come along let's have some fun, the hard work has been done
We'll barrel roll into the sun, just for starters
We'll barrel roll into the sun, just for starters
We'll barrel roll into the sun, just for starters
