Boat Journey lyrics

(From Film Of Life movie)

Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey, my sisters!
Running away from misery
Running away from misery
Running away from misery
And you can find yourself in a double misery.
You don't decide to leave your misery behind
From the past it was shown in your country
You don't decide to leave your misery behind
From the past it was shown in your country
Now you jump into the boat
Now you jump into the boat
To cruise the ocean with all your family
Lookin lookin' for better situation across the ocean
But you never arrive
Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey, my sisters!
Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey, my sisters!

If you are lucky to arrive
If you are lucky to arrive
Just no doubts, not inside you it will find yourself
If you are lucky to arrive,
Makin' you see not inside, you could find yourself
Even if they let you enter, ??? for all
If they let you enter, ??? for all
That means said.
The situation here is not so cool
The situation here is not so cool
That's why,
Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey, my sisters!
Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey, my sisters!
Don't take the boat journey, my brothers!
Don't take the boat journey!
