"The Ship it Used to Be"

Postscript: The MP3 of this song can be downloaded here.

Alright, still have time to post. These are the lyrics to Allan's song. I'll post the MP3 when I have one. Sing it with a thick accent. Trust me, it is really catchy.

"THE SHIP IT USED TO BE"
Written and composed by Allan Pesado,
A/V Officer
Fall 2005

THE MV EXPLORER IT MEANS A LOT TO ME,
THE SHIP SAILS ONCE AGAIN, FALL SEMESTER BEGINS
FAR AWAY FROM HOME IS NOT AN EASY DREAM

IN A STORMY SEA IS A SCARY THING
THE MV EXPLORER THE SHIP IT USED TO BE

TOGETHER WITH YOU GUYS
ON SEMESTER AT SEA
SHE SAILS IN THE FALL
SEMESTER AND SPRING

THEN SUMMER HAS BEGUN
TO SAIL WITH YOU AGAIN
THE OFFICERS AND CREW
OH! FRIENDS DON'T YOU KNOW
WOULD LIKE TO SAY
HELLO OF COURSE TO ALL OF YOU
AND THANKING YOU SO MUCH
FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT
TO SAIL WITH US AROUND THE WORLD.

THE MV EXPLORER IT MEANS A LOT TO ME
SO MANY THINGS TO LEARN
ON SEMESTER AT SEA

EXPLORING IN THE WORLD
AN EXCITING MOVE
ALL THE PORTS ARE GREAT
KENYA THE PLACE WE MISSED
MAURITIUS HAS TO COME
WAS NOT THE REAL PLAN
YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND

YOU OPEN UP YOUR EYES (IN YOUR LIFE)
NOW YOU REALIZE (WHAT YOU ARE)
SOME QUESTIONS IN YOUR MIND (WITH YOUR HEART)
NOW YOU UNDERSTAND

THEN CHRISTMAS TIME WILL COME
FALL SEMESTER HAS GONE
0N THE LAST DAY ON AT SEA
FAREWELL TO ALL YOU SAY,
TEARS FALLING IN YOUR EYES
WATCHING ALL YOUR FRIENDS
KISSING YOU AND SAID GOOD BYE.
