Lyrics:

Let’s sail in to Tortuga
Baby, we better get there soon
Or maybe we can change our latitude
And go to Captain Kidd’s lagoon
Or maybe head to Hispaniola
See what the Spanish Galleons bring
Yeah, put that parrot on your shoulder
And see what song he’s gonna sing

Why not forget about the bilge rats
Making the news in present day
I don’t believe I’m really interested
In what those bottom feeders have to say
They’d probably string me at the gallows
For living well and living free
So we will furl ‘em on the mizzenmast
And sail to where we wanna be

I’ve been known to struggle with reality
Not that it is any real mystery
I just don’t have the time for the stupidity
And yet you see it everywhere
Maybe it coulda’ been my destiny
To live a life way out upon the open sea
You can go ahead and tell me it’s a fantasy
I’ll tell you I don’t really care

So maybe we can make some romance
Out on the beach, beneath the palms
We’ll set the sun down with a slow dance
Holding hope in each other’s arms
And we can anchor off the coast of
Wherever it is that we please
We’ll gently sip upon our boat drinks
And lose our troubles in the breeze

I’ve been known to struggle with reality
Not that it is any real mystery
I just don’t have the time for the stupidity
And yet you see it everywhere
Maybe it coulda’ been my destiny
To live a life way out upon the open sea
You can go ahead and tell me it’s a fantasy
I’ll tell you I don’t really care
