lyrics

I keep missing the love boat through no fault of mine
Someone has sabotaged the boarding times
I keep missing the love boat - my days all begin
Wading back to drier land with rapidly deflating water wings

Anyway

I keep missing the love boat, my friends are astern
They wave to me - but don't seem too concerned that I'm missing the love boat
I'm getting annoyed
I'm also getting far too old to spend my time ignored by cabin boys

Anyway

It creeps round the headland - I launch my emergency flares
But emergency flares don't even evoke a reaction and I'm stranded again

I keep missing the love boat cos everybody is aesthetically more pleasing than me
I keep missing the love boat cos other people show up my personality flaws
I keep missing the love boat so I'll lie here and drown. No, maybe not, then - just a lie down
And abandon the love boat, romance, love and fate
I never really wanted to go on your silly ship anyway
Anyway

Spray Lancashire, UK

Ric and Jen were members of 21st century pop terrorists The Cuban Boys, who topped John Peel's Festive 50 and the UK singles charts.
