THE ONE EYED TURTLE AND THE FLOATING LOG (Walsh) 

You ain’t been drifting long enough 
Your skin’s not soft your hairs not rough 
Looks like you’ve been into the harder stuff 
You look confused your head’s full of fluff 

Haven’t I seen you here before 
looking for a hole on the ocean floor 
Your belly’s bigger than a pompadour 
Like you slept all night in the bottom drawer 

CHORUS 
The one eyed turtle and the floating log 
Lost at sea with the mangy dog 
Singing a song in the morning fog 
About the one eyed turtle and the floating log 

Well the tide is turning it’s time to go 
East is west is all I know 
That lonely old wind is starting to blow 
My shell is colder than a mountain of snow 

I’ve been cursed and I’ve been blessed 
I’ve kept to myself and I’ve confessed 
I lost it all in a treasure chest 
You should have seen me at Oktoberfest 

CHORUS 

I love the sun on my back 
That sandalwood is a tasty snack 
When all my dreams fade to black 
Please won’t you give me a friendly whack 

CHORUS
