Story Behind the Song

See above.

Lyrics

SHIP IN A BOTTLE

Carry me home to the love that I know
Is waiting for me at the end of the sea
And I've packed my belongings and said my goodbyes
The ship in the bottle is ready to ride the waves

Johnny Walker Red
Is a blue-talking sailor
All the words he said
You'll apologize later
Drinks from your glass
as he climbs up the mast
And points to the gathering stars
That's where you learn
Which way to turn

chorus

Jose Cuervo Gold
Is a shipwreck survivor
Left him with the soul
Of a mad taxi driver
Run through the light with him
Stay out all night with him
Crashing the rocks on the waves
Ask your bartender
What to remember

*******

Mickey's Bigmouth Ale
Yeah, we all know what that means
Hoist her tattered sail
Your ocean is wide and green
And served in a barrel, the pride of O'Farrell St.
Pouring you out in the foam
Finally free
Finally home

chorus
