Split Enz
Six Months In A Leaky Boat
------------------------------
 
 When I was a young boy
 I wanted to sail around the world
 That's the life for me, living on the sea
 Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe
 The lust of a pioneer, will acknowledge
 no frontier

 I remember you by, thunderclap in the sky
 Lightning flash, tempers flare,
 `round the horn if you dare
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
 Lucky just to keep afloat

 Aotearoa, rugged individual
 glisten like a pearl
 At the bottom of the world
 The tyranny of distance
 didn't stop the cavalier
 
 So why should it stop me
 I'll conquer and stay free
 Ah c'mon all you lads
 lets forget and forgive
 There's a world to explore
 tales to tell back on shore
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
 Six months in a leaky boat

 Six months in a leaky boat

 Ship-wrecked love can be cruel
 Don't be fooled by her kind
 There's a wind in my sails
 Will protect and prevail
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
 Nothing to it leaky boat.
