Get The Lifeboat In The Water

Uploaded .

Here we go.

This one started out one morning several weeks ago when the sun was still shining…

If it’s as wet and dark as it is here, just close your eyes, I’m sure you can imagine it if you try hard enough…

Lollies, chips, and beer… what more could a chap want on his holiday?

Get The Lifeboat In The Water - A A J Russe

Lucy on a lilo
Lickin on her lolly
Leaning on a pillow
Underneath the brolly
That the nice lifeguard
Put in place
He was tight and smooth
Such a pretty face

With her kids out in the water
Husband somewhere else
She’s got a little time
Time to be herself
She dips into her book
Though she says it isn’t hers
She found it at her mother’s
Underneath a book of verse

Fifty shades of something
Now she needs a bigger hat
She’ll never get a suntan
With her legs crossed like that

Get the lifeboat in the water
Doesn’t always turn out right
Get the lifeboat in the water
Just in case we need it tonight

There’s Alice on the sea-wall
With her own bag of chips
Grease all round her mouth
See her lick her lips
But look out for the seagulls
They’ll carry her away
She’s only such a little thing
And that would be a shame

’Cos she knows how our bodies work
And what all the bits are for
She could probably even tell you
Why you end up wanting more

Get the lifeboat in the water
Doesn’t always turn out right
Get the lifeboat in the water
Just in case we need it tonight

Here’s Hazel skipping down the pier
Watch out girl you’ll spill the beer
Though the moon is out
The wind is getting up
We like the way you sometimes dress
Don’t mind when your hair’s a mess
We just live from day to day
To hear your voice

There’s an old man in the corner there
Wonders if you’d like to chalk his cue
Fall into the water dear
Then you’ll see what it is that we do

Get the lifeboat in the water
Doesn’t always turn out right
Get the lifeboat in the water
Just in case we need it tonight

Get the lifeboat in the water
Doesn’t always turn out right
Get the lifeboat in the water
Just in case we need it tonight

Lovely cheeky vocals atop an infectious groove - completley digging your lower register. Very saucy. :)

Very very cool instrumentation! I’m a sucker for water imagery as well, but love the references to current things (though James already said it). Awesome job.

This was well worth the wait. Superb! I love the reference to what is current these days….hint hint..I like the entrance of the keys and organ at 2:42, masterful. Love it.

Guest said ever, a highly enjoyable listen - great attitude and instrumentation - naughty, but nice!
