Boy You Missed The Boat

"Boy You Missed The Boat"

Lyrics by Elaine Bassett © 2013

 

You missed the boat boy

Boy you missed the boat

Thought we’d go together and sail forever

But when the storm came in

You abandoned ship again

 

Boy you missed the boat

You missed the boat- boy

Boy you missed the boat

 

You took another lover

And set sail under cover

So the rumors were all true

Everyone knew but you

The two of you wouldn’t last

Past dawn

You were just their pawn

 

Boy you missed the boat

You missed the boat- boy

Boy you missed the boat

 

Sadly enough when you finally woke up

Because the waters were rough

It would be too late for us

When you finally discovered

The joke they played on you

 

Boy you missed the boat- boy

Boy you missed the boat

Thought we’d be together

Through all kinds of weather

I never thought you’d actually leave

You promised to come back for me

 

You missed the boat boy

Boy you missed the boat

 

You listened to their lies

Even after a thousand tries

You couldn’t get it right

This may sound trite but-

Boy you missed the boat

 

On the other side we’ll once again come face to face

In another time in space

And I know you’ll try to explain why

Once again-

You lost your way

The excuses you try to make yourself believe only caused you to

Take the fall even when you knew in your heart you should stay the course

 

Just remember this life lesson

So the next time-

You don’t miss the boat

They only did it because they were jealous

Because at one point in time they missed the boat too

They wanted to keep you

From ever knowing the truth

 

You missed the boat boy

Boy you missed the boat

When you cut the rope

You made a decision that caused a collision

You took the bait

And left without your first mate

To a destination that is unknown

So just remember-

 

Whatever happens, happens

But someday you’ll regret that decision

You missed the boat boy

Boy once again you missed the boat
