She reminded me of that old rust bucket.
What fantastic times we had; just me and my old girl traveling the waterways of home.
Seems like an eternity ago now. Yeah; things have changed for me, as they have changed for others, too.
It was grand sailing in those days. We had a core of us blokes, all the best mates.
Yeah; we sailed on and on over the same route from dawn to dusk; that is, until she was scuttled.
Yeah; we scuttled her like a dead fish, right up her gullet. Put her to rest, we did. Yeah; a bunch of us did that. We gave her a grand ceremony befitting a girl of good standing.
Our hearts melted that day. They melted just as sure as she sunk.
What a grand old girl she was. Never to be seen again. The water as her grave. The fishes for her company. My tears a reminder.
And now this old rust bucket needs a rest too.
But, no watery grave for her.
No; no watery grave for this girl…
