Boatload of Wine by Ian H Bruce (2007) Chorus: Boatload of wine, that’ll be fine, Keep me afloat ’til October I must bid you adieu with a glass and corkscrew I don’t want to stay home and be sober. Floating along, all the day long Just stopping at locks full of slime When it’s time for a brew, between me and you Then I’ll open a bottle of wine. The rains pouring down, it feels like I might drown From steering I think I’ll resign But I’ll not complain, nor will I abstain If opening a bottle of wine At the narrow bridge hole, you need self-control For on-coming boats number nine As they push their way through, the air turns to blue So I open a bottle of wine Toilet’s full to the brim, emptying it’s grim I’ll go for a pump-out next time I’ve no Elsan Blue, and the loo smells of ... So I’ll open a bottle of wine The boat comes to a halt, it seems like a fault As rope and propeller entwine Been down the weed hatch, now I’m dirty and scratched So I’ll open a bottle of wine. Now the engine won’t start, it needs a new part It looks like the end of the end of the line Should I polish the brass? No, I'll get out a glass And I'll open a bottle of wine Inspired by two fellow boating club members who set out on the annual cruise with a boat containing more red wine than red diesel. They returned with more red diesel than red wine! Recorded on :
