UnderWay - May 5, 2001

There goes "No Respect"
once again she's left her slip
The sturdy boat is sea bound
for another island trip

Fridge is stocked and tanks are topped
a crew of two today
We're off to Catalina
for a weekend getaway

Just beyond the breakwall
cap' will open up the beast
The sweet thunder from the transome
always puts my mind at ease

There's nothing left to worry
just enjoy the sun so bright
And with the grace of Neptune
we'll be in Avalon tonight

Captain Lou holds her true
and runs a perfect line
We cut right through the popcorn
with twin Detroits so fine

She launches off the top
and slaps the trough again
We got a nine foot southern swell
that makes the bell ring now and then

Sixteen knots in open sea
we're making real good time
Island on horizon
we'll be anchored down by five

Ship to shore -- ten four
the Casino I can see
Shore patrol we need to park
for two days, maybe three

Half the fun is getting there
that's what people say
On that run it all was fun
stayed underway all day
