lyrics

I’LL FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon and Tim Hunter)

(WILLIAM)
MY LITTLE RED BOOK IS MORE THAN A HISTORY
WHERE ALL IS TOLD
IT WILL BE SOLD
THE TALE OF COOK’S SOUL’S MYSTERY

I WILL LOOK INSIDE HIS MIND
TO SEE WHAT SECRETS I WILL FIND

I WILL SEARCH INSIDE HIS HEART
TO SEE WHAT PASSIONS PLAY A PART

I WILL PEER INSIDE HIS SOUL
A BOOK OF REVELATIONS, MY GOAL

I’LL BE ABOARD HIS NEXT TRIP
I SCHEMED MY WAY ON TO THAT SHIP

ON A SHIP, ONLY SO LONG AND WIDE
IF ONE LOOKS AND SOMETIMES HIDES
USING HIS EARS AND ALWAYS HIS EYES
HE’LL FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES
FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES

THOUGH I ADMIRE CAPTAIN COOK
WE’LL GET RICH AND FAMOUS WITH MY BOOK
MY LITTLE RED BOOK ALWAYS AT HAND
IT WILL CONTAIN PERSONAL CONTRABAND

ON A SHIP, ONLY SO LONG AND WIDE . . .

Come on, Margauerite!

(WILLIAM and MARGUERITE)
ON A SHIP, SO LONG AND WIDE
IF ONE LOOKS AND SOMETIMES HIDES
USING HIS EARS AND ALWAYS HIS EYES
HE’LL FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES
FIND WHERE THE REAL TRUTH LIES

(WILLIAM)
MY LITTLE RED BOOK IS MORE THAN A HISTORY

(MARGUERITE)
. . . MORE THAN A HISTORY

(WILLIAM)
WHERE ALL IS TOLD

(MARGUERITE)
WHERE ALL IS TOLD

(WILLIAM)
IT WILL BE SOLD

(MARGUERITE)
IT WILL BE SOLD

(WILLIAM and MARGUERITE)
THE TALE OF COOK’S SOUL’S MYSTERY
