Watching the Frantic People

Watching the frantic people run by
And seeing a mother and her little girl cry
Knowing they might die
I pluck the string to begin
The mother and her daughter look up with a grin
It’s hard to play with cold air freezing my skin
The frantic people start to calm down
To the music we play makes this wonderful sound
The boat just made a big cracking sound
Oh no the ship just broke
I get on playing but the cold air makes me choke
For all the good things I done in life this was the one that wasn’t a joke
