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
