Miserable Meal
With the NZSO

Arrangement by Claire Cowan
Additional brass by Toby Laing

Music Buda // TPF
Words Buda

Somebody is in my kitchen
Cooking up a miserable meal
They hide themselves in shame,
but I know them
It ain’t hard to recognise yourself

All aboard the SS Shithole
Listing now for several years
The Captain says we’ll make it
But I disagree
I’m packing my bags
and I’m jumping ship

What a time to find out I don’t know how to swim
Will someone throw me a line and pull me back in?
I guess I’d rather go down with this wreck than fade out alone
Out on the sea

Back aboard the SS Shithole
The water’s pouring steadily in
We’re bailing out the ballast
Before we go down
A little comfort in our moment of doom

What a time to find out I don’t know how to swim
Will someone throw me a line and pull me back in
I guess I’d rather go down with this wreck than fade out alone
Out on the sea
