Think of Me (When You Drink to the Sea) ©2017 Robert George BMI

I have heard you raise a glass to Neptune
In that seaside bar in Monterey
And I know you toast Kolkata barmaids
On that leaky houseboat in the bay

I know Cuban rum has kept your memories afloat
So please don’t forget me and my sunken fishing boat

Think of me
When you drink to the sea
There is no
Finer way to be free
I prefer a seabed underneath the brine
To a sawdust pillow in a chilly box of pine
So think of me
When you drink
When you drink to the sea

You may hear a sound outside a porthole
You may see a shadow on the waves
If I lived through snipers on the Mekong
I can rise up from a deep blue grave

I can trace my sailor’s blood back to the Jacob Jones
Now we roam the seven seas released from flesh and bone

Think of me
When you drink to the sea
There is no
Wilder way to be free
From the North Sea up the Rhine to Dusseldorf
Then I’ll meet the moon in Frisco on a midnight wharf
So think of me
When you drink
When you drink to the sea

I have stowed away upon the night wings of a gull
Flown to visit souls who haunt the Arizona’s hull
I have asked my Uncle Dan to come to Singapore
But he’s loyal to that sacred ship forevermore

Think of me
When you drink to the sea
There is no
Finer way to be free
One by one you’ll ride the backs of Norwhal whales
When you reach the secret sea behind the salty veil
So think of me
When you drink
When you drink to the sea
When you drink to the sea…
