Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from the Newport dock,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty boatin' man,
the skipper brave and sure.
Three passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour, a three hour tour………
The motor started getting tough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the Irish chap,
the Shortbus would be lost; the Shortbus would be lost.
The ship stopped in the middle of this uncharted river,
with Asian, the Norton too,
the Meatball, and his Wife,
the Meatball, and his Wife
here on Meatball's Isle.
