lyrics

Icebergs shaped like shoes!
Oh, if only I could choose
to make my feet the skippers
of these transatlantic slippers,
I’d stroll the ocean blues.

Icebergs shaped like shoes,
uncomfortable but hard to refuse…
but instead of frozen rocks
they’ll feel like warm wool socks
if I fuel up with enough booze!

Icebergs shaped like shoes,
guaranteed to never vanish –
cause once I stick my toes in
to my feet they will stay frozen,
til I wander somewhere Spanish!

Oh, ocean-going bowling shoes and supertanker sneakers,
deep-sea diving rubber boots and subaquatic oxfords,
whatever jiggles your jigs and reels,
just watch your step you oughta,
cause iceberg shoes are all high, high heels!
They’re ninety percent underwater.

Oh, icebergs shaped like shoes
might be one size too gigantic,
but if you want to get off-island
you should slip em on and try em!
They’re quicker than Marine Atlantic!

Icebergs shaped like shoes,
oh, they never make the news
unless there is a scandal,
when they flip-flop into sandals,
melting from overuse…

So pirouette round pirate ships or splish around in sploshes,
your iceberg shoes can be shaped like stilettos or galoshes!
Whatever jiggles your jigs and reels,
just watch your step you oughta,
cause iceberg shoes are all high, high heels!
They’re ninety percent underwater.

Oh, icebergs shaped like shoes –
are you one chunk of ice, or two?
Are you joined beneath the waves,
with a glacial shoelace?
Are you anchored by the ankles
like a three-legged race,
the way I’m tied up with you?
