lyrics

There’s a boat we keep in the garden,
leaf-filled and creaky,
with cracks that show it’s past it’s sailing days.
The grass grows up from underneath
and branches hang over,
the blue paint and the white paint peels away,
as here now for years it’s remained.

And she’s called Andrika,
but we don’t know who named her,
Andrika, but no one knows who named her.

What was once the scene of high adventure
has become a garden feature,
as creatures nest inside and underneath.
It’s mooring in this corner has lasted for so long,
it looks more at home than it ever did at sea.
The sails and oars are nowhere to be seen.
It’s anchored here indefinitely.

And she’s called Andrika,
but we don’t know who named her,
Andrika, but no one knows who named her.
We’d take it out on the estuary
and exaggerate the memories,
till all the things that happened seem like myths.
Like the time dad tied a rope around his waist
and towed into the harbour,
