Hey guys! Can you write down the lyrics of "The Bamboos feat Kylie Auldist – the happiness ship in a bottle", please?
I'm not a native speaker, so I can't distinguish the right lyrics by ear.
Cant find any lyrics of this song in the web.
Thanks
link to hear the song - on youtube (thanks BjarnedeGraaf for advice)

Never tried transcribing lyrics before but gave it a go. Not sure about everything, she's got some accent with a bit of a lisp then there's some slang. Let me know what you think. Would be cool if someone listened and heard something differently

You got someone on the side
I'm not coming for a ride
I'm a ship inside the bottle
I'mma rot and sink in there
You be drowning in your tears
And I won't be here tomorrow

It's keepin' fanciest type of brown
I got no-one else around
You already met all
Won't you take another round
From your place there on the ground
I bet you hear me when I shout

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder

You are bound to win the buy
I'm not waiting in the car
Do you think that I don't matter?
There's a shop but not with names
In a glass it's plain to see
Where you'll be forever

No-one cares and not your friends
Leave your family for them
They're not even top shelf
Suit yourself, it's nothing new
Another one, another few
Please don't think I'm here to help

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder

You got someone on the side
I'm not coming for a ride
I'm the ship inside the bottle
I'mma rot and sink in there
You be drowning in your tears
And I won't be here tomorrow

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down in the
How far, I wonder

(Will I live, no
I'll live
I'll live, yeah
How far under
And I'm only...
Oh yeah
Pulling me down, pulling me dow..yeah
I'll love
How far I can go
I'll love yeah
I'm going un..) (END)

Here's one more version from my friend:

You’ve got someone known as I
I’m not coming for a ride
I’m a ship inside the bottle
I’m wreck to sink in me
You’ve been drowning in your tears
And I won’t be here tomorrow

I’m skipping easy sorrow of ground
Like I go when’s no one about
You’re already mound
Won’t you take another bound
From the place that underground
I bet you hear me when I shout

Chorus:
You drowning me
You draging me under
Deep down and
How far I wonder
You sacking and
You pulling me under
Deep down and just
How far I wonder


You had find your way in the bar
I’m not waiting in the car
Do you think that I don’t matter?
That is stop, enough with me
Setting glasses vain to see
Where you be forever

No one cares, image your friends
Leave your family for them
They’re not even top shit
Sit yourself as nothing new
Another one – another view
Cause you think I’m here to help


Chorus:
You drowning me
You draging me under
Deep down and
How far I wonder
You sacking and
You pulling me under
Deep down and just
How far I wonder

This is what I made of it. it's almost the same as the rest xcept for the chorus
I made it bold, the parts I heard differently

You got someone on the side
I'm not coming for a ride
I'm a ship inside the bottle
I'm a rot and sink in there
You'll be drowning in your tears
And I won't be here tomorrow

It's the easiest thing I found (this is wrong, but im not able to hear WHAT it is)
I got no-one else around
You're already knocked out
Won't you take another round
From your place there on the ground
I bet you hear me when I shout

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder

You are bound to win the bar
I'm not waiting in the car
Do you think that I don't matter?
There's a shop but not with names
In a glass it's plain to see
Where you'll be forever

No-one cares and not your friends
Leave your family for them
They're not even top shelf
Suit yourself, it's nothing new
Another one, another few
Please don't think I'm here to help

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder

You got someone on the side
I'm not coming for a ride
I'm the ship inside the bottle
I'm a rot and sink in there
You'll be drowning in your tears
And I won't be here tomorrow

You're drowning and you're dragging me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder
You're sinking and you're pulling me under
Deep down and just how far, I wonder

(Will I live, no
I'll live
I'll live, yeah
How far under
And I'm only...
Oh yeah
Pulling me down, pulling me dow..yeah
I'll love
How far I can go
I'll love yeah
I'm going un..) (END)
