  Sitting on a pier


Sitting on a Pier
looking at the ships
and thinking about places far away
so peaceful sitting here
alone and on this pier
imagination's free to drift away

I wonder what it's like
to be upon a ship
and sail away to some exotic place
what people would be like
if they would be like us
although they would be of some different race


They'd have different lives
because of where they live
but on the whole they would be just like us
with boy and girl in love
and marrying some day
with daily chores and news they would discuss

I think that in this world
no matter where you go
there's people that are good and some are bad
I'm happy where I am
just sitting on this pier
and thinking about things and being glad
