Check out this recent news story from local ABC affiliate Channel 13:
Anyone familiar with my band, The Flying Fish Sailors, has likely heard the song Greg wrote called Haul U-Haul Haul which is a spoof of a sailor’s hauling shanty and is about moving domiciles using a dilapidated U-Haul truck.
The similarities between the song and the news story are eerie…
So an officer came in a great big cruiser
The aquarium tipped and we started to lose her
Then I saw me a sight that made me shiver
As the truck dove nose first into the river
When I got to shore I was damn near drowned
As I watched that truck floating right out of town
So I sat in jail “˜til the very next day Sir
With the mileage fee just a’tickin’ away Sir
But from all this pain one thing I’ve learned Sir
Well the next time I move I’ll just buy new furniture
For those unfamiliar with the song I have added it to this post for your listening enjoyment.
