Paul McCartney - Despite Repeated Warnings Lyrics

Despite repeated warnings
Our danger's up ahead
The captain won't be listening
To what's real said

It feels that there's a good chance
That we've been misled
And so the captain's planning
To steam ahead

What can we do, what can we do
What can we do to stop
This foolish plan going through
What can we do, what can we do
This man is bound to lose his ship and his crew

Despite repeated warnings
From those who are to know
Well, he's got his own agenda
And so we'll go

We shout the loudest
We'll not always be the smartest
But they have their promised moments
Right before they fall
Red sky in the morning
Doesn't ever seem to face him
But a sailor's warning signal
Should concern his soul

How can we stop him?
Grab the keys and lock him up
If we can do it, we can save the day

The engineer is with his wife and daughter Janet
But he misses them so
Although he's working with the best crew on the planet
They'll never want him to go
He had a premonition
He said that something's wrong
And by his own admission
He knew it all along
The captain's crazy but he doesn't let them know it
He'll take us with him if we don't do something soon to stop him

How can we stop him?
Grab the keys and lock him up
If we can do it, we can save the day

No brakes, the engineer cries
The cabin's gonna leak, that's when the temperatures rise
The heat is going up, the engine's gonna blow
And we're gonna be left down below, down below

Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it now
Yes we can do it

Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it now
Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it now
Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it now
Oh yeah

Even life would work out the way you plan it
And that'd be so fine for the wife and Janet
Sometimes you might have to battle through it
But that's the way you learn how you got to do it

Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it
Yes we can do it
Yeah, we can do it

Despite repeated warnings
Our danger's up ahead
While the captain wasn't listening
To what was said

So we went to the captain
And told him to turn round
But he laughs in our faces
Says that we are mistaken
So we gather around him
And everyone stood around him
Oh, but he should have listened
To the will of the people
It's the will of the people
It's the will of the people
