MUST BE LUFF
Michelle Shocked


When I came into your harbor

But I feel my spirits lifting

Like a wind just off the starboard bow

Now, I know I swore I would love no more

but you hauled in and called my bluff

You took the wind out of my sails

It must be luff

It must be luff


I've been down, I've been around

I drink the whiskey, don't drink no water

And this ain't my first seaport town

I am a salty seaman's daughter

But you rock my boat 'til it will hardly float

And when you talk that soft romantic stuff

You take the wind out of my sails

It must be luff

It must be luff



So fly that Jolly Roger high

Don't lie, you are a pirate

Shanghaid my heart, stole my soul

Don't you try to deny it

Oh, how I cried when you took my pride

And when that just weren't enough

you took the wind out of my sails

It must be luff

It must be luff
