Beneath the seas No loneliness is known
Rain never falls Seldom a cloudy day.
I was diving for perils far off the coast
trying to stay clear of the nuclear submarines
and tourists looking for love and treasures.

In the distance I saw the Titanic
sleeping on the ocean floor.

I saw her swimming across the upper deck
she was on that maiden voyage too long ago
She took me to her cabin - An oasis in the sea
We danced a decade away
as the fish and memories swam by
She told me how she had waited
for so long to be discovered

I said, "me too" as I swam out the door
and returned to the land I never once believed

Some day I will return to the Titanic and her
But until then I can only stare at her smile
that constantly beckons me to return
and keeps me from having the women I meet
at single bars and barmitzvah parties
knowing beneath the sea she waits for me

with Bacchanalian pleasure for evermore.
