Lyrics

NEVER GET OUT OF THE BOAT
words and music by Patrick Frost and Harry Hann

In New Orleans they say there is a sauciea
Had a taste for a mango that took him deep into the brush one day.
Though the Jungle was dark and gray he went in anyway.
Keeping his eyes open wide as his ears listen out
For the sound of danger.

Never get out of the boat Until we reach harbor
Never get out of the boat In such a dangerous place.
No need to jump into the water
You don't have to run through the jungle
Never get out of the boat On such a beautiful day.

I’m Feeling good today. Got a lot to say.
The journey is clear, but the path is twisted, turning all the way.
I'm steering a steady course. I’m quoting a greater source.
Rolling down the river with a very cautious approach
To what could take you in a second.

Never get out of the boat until we reach harbor.
Never get out of the boat in such a dangerous place.
There's a fin sticking out of the water.
Could be a shark or an otter.
Never get out of the boat unless you go all the way.

You don't have to jump in the water.
You don't have to run through the jungle.
You don't have to wrestle the gator.

I'm suddenly feeling brave. The outlook is not so grave.
It's charming and sweet like a woman who always seems so innocent.
A tiger waits in the grass to bite you right in the leg.
Whenever you're feeling brave just remember the words of the saucier.

Never get out of the boat Until we reach harbor
Never get out of the boat In such a dangerous place.
No need to jump into the water
You don't have to run through the jungle
Never get out of the boat, unless you go all the way.
