Shakedown Cruise
Jay Ferguson
It was thirty days around the horn
The captain says it's a thirty-five more
The moon looks mean and the crew ain't staying
"There's gonna be some blood" is what they're all saying

It's a shakedown cruise
And I was just another fool
There ain't no easy way out
They're gonna shake you 'til you shout, hey, hey
