lyrics

Verse 1
Well, it's the most beautiful feeling when you not sitting steering
and the wind in the sail is not blowing a gale and you heading the right way
Then along come a Yachtie rich and snotty
he talk a lot what he got oh and where he going but he don't know

Chorus
All you need is a sunshine
all you need is a good time
What they say no we don’t care we're on a Slow Boat to Africa

Verse 2
Pulls up in his plastic cat he says "Ey man, how you sail around in that?"
All you seeing is rust stains and bust up outboards....
He’s got a lot of fancy gear but he dont know how to steer,
He’s got electric winches, a machine for the dishes and a telephone he calls his wife at home he says:
Oh honey its hell out here
Oh honey I miss you dear
Oh theres waves everywhere
Oh honey I’m so scared

Chorus
All you need is a sunshine
all you need is a good time
What they say no we don‘t care we're on a Slow Boat to Africa

Rather be on a dreamer than a million dollar screamer,
smoking spliffs and eating fish and on a slow boat to Africa
Slow boat to africa x 3
We’re on a slow boat to Africa...
Africa, Canada, Samoa, Fiji, Vanuatu baby we do what we wanna do.
All you need, all you need is a good time
We dont care what they say we’re on a slow boat to Africa
To Africa. Africa. Slow boat to Africa
