“During hard times, laughing at yourself is the best survival strategy"

lyrics

LYRICS
ENGLISH:

I went out fishing in my canoe
I dozed off unwittingly
The river took me and I didn’t realize
Dropped out upon the high seas
And the old canoe was left with
Lots of water to bale out
And I never learnt to swim
Can it be that this water is wet?
The leaking canoe
Is almost going down

I’d rather catch a black jack,
A Saberé, Doctorfish
Striped bass, mullet, lebranche
Snook, shrimp
But what came was a shark
To circle around me
Does he want me for lunch?
Can I withstand his bite?
The leaking canoe
Is almost going down

I cried: Jesus, help me!
Mother, help me!
My God, send someone to pick me up!
But no one comes
And my phone doesn’t work
Even for a collect call
Because the bill wasn’t paid
And the line's been cut
The leaking canoe
Is almost going down

I wanted to say a prayer
To any saint
To come from wherever
And take me out of here
The point is that I never learnt
How to pray
And it wouldn’t be worth anything
For the prayer of an atheist is worth nothing
The leaking canoe
Is almost going down

PORTUGUESE:

Saí pra pescar de canoa
Cochilei sem querer
E o rio me levou sem eu ver
No alto mar me largou
E a canoa velha deixou
Muita água minar
Eu nunca aprendi a nadar
Será que essa água é molhada ?
A canoa furada
Já tá perto de afundar
Em vez d`eu pescar um xaréu
Saberé, caraúna
Robalo, tainha, sauna
Camurim, camarão
Quem veio foi um tubarão
Pra me arrudiar
Será que ele quer me lanchar
Será que eu aguento a dentada?
A canoa furada
Já tá perto de afundar

Gritei: Meu Jesus, me socorra !
Me acuda, mamãe
Meu Deus, mande alguém que me apanhe!
Mas não chega ninguém
E o meu celular não dá nem
Pra ligar a cobrar
Que a conta ficou sem pagar
E a linha já tá bloqueada
A canoa furada
Já tá perto de afundar

Queria fazer uma prece
Para um santo qualquer
Que venha de onde vier
Mas me tire daqui
O caso é que eu nunca aprendi
Como faz pra rezar
Também não ia adiantar
Que reza de ateu não dá nada
A canoa furada
Já tá perto de afundar
