The Stone Coyotes

Ship of Fools

The Stone Coyotes
The Stone Coyotes


Yes, I know I was asking for trouble

No need to go through the wreckage for clues

All the kisses grown cold – It’s the same old story

Play Cupid’s game and you’re bound to lose


So, Love, hey thanks – Look what you started

Made me weep and wail – How could you be so cruel?

I joined the ranks of the broken-hearted

Set sail on the ship of fools


The moon is a silver-tongued devil

A smooth-talking rogue with an eye to romance

Dazzled in its glow as he whispered low

                                                        such sweet words

Found myself saying, “Sure – Let’s take a chance”


Swept away, and now I’m stranded

Every bridge burned, no return ticket to be found

The bloom’s off the rose – I’m just one of those


Here I sit where I hit the rocks, ran aground
