Blue, songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there’re so many sinking now
You’ve got to keep thinking
You can make it thru these waves
Acid, booze and ass
Needles, guns and grass
Lots of laughs, lots of laughs
Well everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go
Well, I don’t think so
But I’m gonna take a look around it though
Blue, I love

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me
