Carnival Cruise Ship

Carnival Cruise Ship

I saw a man get gored by a bull in Pamplona
I saw bandits descend upon an Italian train
I've seen the worst of the worst in a Guatemalan prison
I've seen an innocent man get framed

So sail the world on a Carnival Cruise ship
Enjoy all the amenities
So sail the world on a Carnival Cruise ship
Close your eyes to the harsh realities
'Cause there's pirates on the water
and the devil's in the deep blue sea

I saw a monk immolate himself in Burma
I've seen monsoon rains wash it all away
I saw a friend take his own life in Denver
Just when I thought everything was gonna be ok

So sail the world on a Carnival Cruise ship
Enjoy all the amenities
So sail the world on a Carnival cruise ship
Close your eyes to the harsh realities
'Cause there's pirates on the water
and the devil's in the deep blue sea

I saw a man shoot up a grocery store in Reno
Blood flowed like a river down the produce aisle
I saw a couple get kidnapped down in Juarez
They had it made if they coulda walked one more mile

So sail the world on a Carnival Cruise ship
Enjoy all of the amenities
So sail the world on a Carnival Cruise ship
Close your eyes to the harsh realities
'Cause there's pirates on the water
and the devil's in the deep blue sea

Great Song Les. Amenities is a hard word to rhyme. I'm pulling out my guitar. (don't worry, I won't record it):-)
