Six Months in a Leaky Boat
by Split Enz



When I was a young boy
I wanted to sail round the world
That's the life for me
Living on the sea
Spirit of the sailor
Circumnavigates the globe
The lustful pioneer
Will acknowledge no frontier
I remember you by
Thunder clapped in the sky
Lightning flash, tempers flared
Round the horn, if you dare

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Lucky just to keep afloat

Ay o tay arama
Rocking individual
Glisten like a pearl
At the bottom of the world
The tirrany of distance
Didn't stop the cavalier
So why should it stop me
I'll conquer and stay free
Aye, come on all you lads
Let's forget and forgive
There's a world to explore
Tales to tell back on shore

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Six months in a leaky boat

Shipwreck love can be cruel
Don't be fooled by her kind
There's a wind in my sails
We'll protect and prevail

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Nothing to it, leaky boat
