UNDER THE SEA

UNDER THE SEA

 
The world beneath that's where I'll be 
Just in case someone is looking for me 
I've found a place that's trouble free 
Away from the madness under the sea 

So tired of the toil and the hustle every day 
Hammering away in hopes of payday 
But what comfort does it bring
After signing your paycheck 
You haven't got a thing 

Looking for love 
Then keep dreaming 
Its safer that way 
Keeps your heart from breaking 

Need an education 
Great! Go for it
But after graduation 
There is still regrets 

Start a family 
With a child or two 
A house with a white picket fence
And car of blue

Then the children grows up
And off they go
You are fifty years older now 
In your house all alone 

The world beneath that's where I'll be 
Just in case someone is looking for me 
I've found a place that's trouble free 
Away from the madness under the sea.

Wilford Barker.
