lyrics

Molly Brown

"I wanted a rich man, but I loved Jim Brown.”
the damnedest man in that whole dumb town.
and I was out there on the ocean when the stars spun around
but I was carrying our name, and so I didn't slip down

I'm the unbeatable – maybe untreatable
surely unsinkable – simply unthinkable
Molly Brown

on the mighty Mississippi, back in Hannibal, MO,
there's a voice inside that river when the water gets low
calling “mark twain” in the twilight, and your feet they let go
I guess I coulda stopped drifting, but I just had to know

I'm the undrenchable – ever unquenchable
yet the undrinkable – I said, unthinkable
Molly Brown

maybe I'll invent the wheel again,
cut through the land – call it a knife
maybe I'll build up a dream of an ark,
invite a few friends – call it a life

some years later, Leadville, same old story again:
I loved the frontier, but I couldn't find my Jim
I was out there with the west winds that no roads might reach
I was roaring down the Arkansas to that old valley's beach

all the unclaimable – somehow untamable
where would your dead men go, just to some foreign shore?
how would your cracked ships lie under the iceberg sky?
not so unsinkable, say I – I, the unthinkable
Molly Brown

I'd always wanted a rich man, but I only loved Jim
I carried our name so far away from him
unthinkable – yes, I am, Molly Brown
unsinkable, baby – here I stand now
here I stand now – here I stand now
here I stand now – here I stand now
unsinkable in the twilight, still – I stand now
