Last Boat Leaving - Elvis Costello


Hush my little one don't cry so


You know your daddys


Bound to go


They took his pride


They took his voice


Don't upset him now


Don't make a noise


They said you're lucky son


Still got a choice


Last boat leaving


Don't waste your tears


It's not as if I'm in chains


I don't want to go now

It would be better for

You too if I don't look back when we sail


We well les por


We well


Hush my dear while I whisper it in your ear


Were not going to sail tonight


Were going to disappear


And it feels like a punishment


But I don't know what for


Take care of your mother son


It's you that she adores


'Cos no matter how long we sail

Well never reach the shore


Last boat leaving


So dry your tears

It's not as if I'm in chains


When you go

To school son

Youll read my story in history books

Only they won't mention my name


He will bless my


He will

So hush now my darling my sweet little one


I hope that you never have to do


What ive done


Do you know what ive done


Why I'm going away


On the last boat leaving this stinking town


Last boat leaving


Last boat leaving


Youve had my innocence youve had my heartbreak


Youve taken the place where I once belonged

Now what more can you take
