I got really drunk yesterday said hey bet you I could sneak onto that guy's boat without him noticing
I moved the water with my hands slowly drifting away from my people nobody noticed me leaving
Almost at the boat I got a wave from my uncle my heart began beating often
this will be hilarious I thought sitting in the warm water touching the man's ladder step step enter
half a moment passes the man turns to grab a beer sees me standing as we stare
Hi I was trying to sneak onto your boat without you noticing
he made a slight gesture opening his hand paused a moment said do you know anything about electrical? My lights aren't working
I said no sorry, I'm only half a man jumped and swam away
a few minutes back the family still floating in a circle I say hey did you see I made it onto that guy's boat
nobody noticed but the man himself
