Subject: Lyr Add: I'M YOUR CAPTAIN (from Grand Funk Railroa
I assure you, there was nothing going on in them bushes except blackberry picking! Crowhugger (lad?/lass?) bring that big beautiful cello over here. I love cellos...And it would sound great on one o' my favorite songs:

Everybody, listen to me
And return me my ship
I'm your captain, I'm your captain
Though I'm feeling mighty sick
I've been lost now, days uncounted
And it's been months since I've seen home
Can you hear me? Can you hear me?
Poor am I, all alone
If you return me to my home port
I will kiss you mother earth
Take me back now, take me back now
To the port of my birth

Am I in my cabin dreaming
Or are you really scheming
To take my ship away from me?
You better think about it
I just can't live without it
So please don't take my ship from me

I can feel the hand of a stranger
And it's tied me around my throat
Heaven help me, heaven help me
Take this stranger off my boat
I'm your captain, I'm your captain
Though I'm feeling mighty sick
Everybody, listen to me
And return me me ship
I'm your captain, yeah, yeah yeah

I'm getting closer to my home....


C'mon everyone! Sing along! "I'm getting closer to my home..."
