Overboard

Written by
Ingrid Michaelson

i could write my name by the age of three
and i don't need anyone to cut my meat for me
i'm a big girl now, see my big girl shoes
it'll take more than just a breeze to make me

fall over, fall over, fall overboard, overboard
fall overboard just so you can catch me

but as strong as i seem to think i am my distressing damsel
she comes out at night when the moon's filled up and your eyes are
bright, then i think i simply aught to

fall over, fall over, fall overboard, overboard
fall overboard just so you can catch me
you can catch me

i watch the ships go sailing by
i play the girl will you play the guy
and i never thought i'd be the type
to fall, to fall, to fall, to fall to fall

to fall over, fall over, fall overboard, overboard
fall overboard just so you can catch me
you can catch me, you can catch me, you can catch

i watch the ships go sailing by i be your girl will you be my guy
and i never thought i'd be the type to fall, to fall

to fall, to fall, to fall

to fall over, fall over, fall overboard, overboard
fall overboard just so you can catch me
you can catch me, you can catch me
