lyrics

whenever i'm sleepin' i keep dreamin'
of a great big beautiful ocean
but i ain't got arms
and i ain't got legs
so i start drinkin' up the water singin'

bon voyage, c'est la vie, bon voyage, mon cheri

but from one hundred thousand leagues
it gets real hard to breathe
but if you listen closely
you might hear an argument
as you're driftin' off to sleep

why don't you catch yourself the fish
share them if you wish
you know we're gonna be here a long long long long time
unless... you get this off your chest
i know you been keepin' secrets

all the sounds can lead a man to want or on occasion need
more than the sea can give him
so he sinks his teeth
into the drink
he plugs his ears when he hears 'em singin'

bon voyage, c'est la vie, bon voyage, mon cheri

and so a habit forms on the lips
while his dead man's ship sways & drifts
into that great big shore in the sky
he looks up
hears all the sirens singin'

you've got a bad habit of talkin' in your sleep
you've got a bad habit of makin' promises you cannot keep
so bon voyage
c'est la vie
bon voyage
mon cheri
