Lyric Notes

Up for collaboration. In a bit of a lyrical doldrum, I visited postsecretarchive.com for inspiration.
Here's one quote that caught my eye:
'I got up at 5:00 in the morning to go out hauling with you, not because I like lobster, but because I like you. Take the hint!'

I assume the writer of the postcard was female, but I've made the narrator/singer a male.
It's not unknown for women to crew on or even captain fishing vessels.

I hear it as a fun, bouncy folkish/shanty tune that people could sing while sitting around a campfire on the beach, eating prawns and drinking beer. (-:
