A Shot Across the Bow

Lyrics

I was strolling on the deck

Underneath the starry skies

When something to my left

Made my hackles rise

It tore through the black night

And caught me off guard

It hit me from the port side

And it hit me hard

 

Oh no –

You’ve gone and done it now

You threw down the gauntlet

And fired a shot across the bow

 

You made a grave miscalculation

When you crossed the line

A blatant provocation

I must respond in kind

You did your best to shake me

That wasn’t very nice

You better reconsider, Baby

Or pay a high price

 

So how do you like it?

I pushed you back on your heels

The shoe is on the other foot

Tell me, how does that feel?

I used to be so meek and mild

Your anger I did dread

But that was yesterday

“Damn the torpedoes

Full speed ahead!”
