lyrics

sittin' on the dock of the harbor
starin' at the oil on the water
formin' pretty colors and patterns
like the rings round neptune and saturn
saw this great big passenger freighter
pullin out to sea a bit later
then i saw her face in the porthole
and it made me feel like an asshole - because...

i missed the boat like the unicorn
i missed the boat on the day i was born
i missed the boat but it's not so scary
i missed the boat but i caught the ferry

read the news today in the paper
bout some capsized passenger freighter
tidal waves had turned it upside down
like the famous ss poseidon
forty portholes broke in the motion
how'd they count them all in the ocean
then i read the list of who made it
and it made me sad and elated - because...

i missed the boat like the unicorn
i missed the boat on the day i was born
i missed the boat but it's not so scary
i missed the boat but i caught the ferry...
