I’m on a boat motherfucker take a look at me
Straight flowin’ on a boat on the deep blue sea
Bustin’ five knots, wind whippin out my coat
You can’t stop me motherfucker cause I’m on a boat

I’m ridin on a dolphin, doin’ flips and shit
The dolphin’s splashin’, gettin e’rybody all wet
But this ain’t Aegae, this is real as it gets
I’m on a boat motherfucker, don’t you ever forget.

-Homer, book 2 (catalogue of ships)
