Must Be Luff

I’m (D7) admitting I was drifting
When I (G) came into your harbor
But I (D) feel my spirits lifting
Like a (G) wind just off to starboard bow
Now I (E7) know I swore that I would love no more
But (A) you hauled in, you (G#) cal(G)led (F#) my bluff
You (D7) took the wind out of my sails
It (G) must be luff

Oh (D7) luff, (G) L-U-F-F
Oh (D7) luff, It must be (G) luff (F#) (G)

I’ve been down, I’ve been around
I drink the whiskey, don’t drink no water
And this ain’t my first seaport town
No, I’m a salty seaman’s daughter
But you rock my boat til it will hardly float
And when you talk that soft romantic stuff
You take the wind out of my sails
It must be luff

So fly that Jolly Roger high
Don’t lie, you are a pirate
Shanghai’d my heart, stole my soul
Don’t try to deny it
How I cried when you took my pride
And when that just weren’t enough
You took the wind out of my sails
It must be luff

I thought, this looks like a fucking butcher’s shop. I am not gonna take this sitting down. So they come to get me and I start screamin’, and some cop is just beggin’ me to kick him in the balls. So I do.
