A half hour out on the trail
The pirate ship barely had hardly set sail
When the finest in law said we're outta control
They cuffed me and threw me in jail

It just doesn't get any better
There isn't a captain there's only a crew
The storms we weather together
The places we've been and the things that we do

Well, in Italy someone stabbed Joe
Morale on the ship it had sunk mighty low
Stitches in place he was back on the bass
And we only missed one fishbone show!

And it just doesn't get any better
There isn't a captain there's only a crew
The storms we weather together
The places we've been and the things that we do

Trips to St. Louis, Lawrence, and Austin
San Diego, Atlanta and don't forget Boston
We travel and travel and start to unravel
Chewing up pavement and spittin' out gravel

Sometimes the shit hits the fan
And sometimes the shit, it gets way outta hand
Sure it's berserk, but it beats honest work
And it's great work to get if you can!

Who knows where we're headed next?
Not sure if anyone checked
The only thing I know is wherever we go
We leave the place thoroughly wrecked

Who knows where we're headed next?
Not sure if anyone checked
The only thing I know is wherever we go
We leave the place thoroughly wrecked

Travel, travel, we're starting to unravel
As we travel down the road, we're ready to explode
Keep the spirits up with a smile as we walk another mile
'Cause when the journey ends, we'll still be the best of friends
