When The Ship Goes Down

Album: Water In A Whale (2013)
  • I wanna live in a better part of town
    Over the park in a bed of garlands
    With an ivory banister I can slide down
    And a man outside that I call Simon
    I wanna fall asleep in a cashmere nightgown
    When the ship goes down

    I wanna live in a better part of town
    Where I don't have to hide my diamonds
    The bourgeois are bubbling around,
    But they can't touch my sweet asylum
    They'll put me on the first lifeboat out
    When the ship goes down
    When the ship goes down

    We deserve a chauffeur in our car
    Black truffle loaded with caviar
    White gloves to open up every door
    Life is short, let's get what we came for
    Ah, ah, I want more
    La, la and I'll get what I came for
    La, la, I want more

    I wanna get high and never come down
    Mountains of white and music so loud
    I want to die with jewels in my crown
    When the ship goes down
    When the ship goes down
    When the ship goes down Writer/s: JILLETTE JOHNSON
