Lyrics

Meany met a sailor boy on his day off his day off
Bumped into him by the liquor store liquor store
And man it was so beautiful they fell in love fell in love
The sun it rose and set upon their shore

That sailor of the sea he was a lovely man lovely man
And he looked at Meany like she was the goddess she'd become
He saw inside her lovely eyes a treasure there treasure there
And ain't it perfect when we love someone

And she tried to be strong when his ship sailed away
And he promised her he would return
The promise held no water
It was very clear very soon
The sailor was AWOL when his ship came in

Meany is a patient girl she spent her time spent her time
Dreaming about subs and masts and cannons in the night
And every morning when she woke she called his name called his name
A lonely Meany is a sad sad sight

And she tried to be strong when his ship sailed away
And he promised her he would return
The promise held no water
It was very clear very soon
The sailor was AWOL when his ship came in

Some men search for treasure on the open sea open sea
And some prefer to never put their foot upon a ship
Some men hold the answer to their very dreams very dreams
And watch it slip between their fingertips

And she tried to be strong when his ship sailed away
And he promised her he would return
The promise held no water
It was very clear very soon
The sailor was AWOL when his ship came in
