To the center

At the shore

small waves lapping quietly

in the twilight

to the center

far away

the little boat must be rowed

along I go

with lantern light out in front

the fearful waters deep and dark

something moves there underneath

the boat bumping

It's just my fears coming to help

to help me on my way

with sharky grins

they jump on in

they'll help me row

I'll hold the light

not so far to go

we all laugh

not so far to go
