     D                 G          D
The Gastonguay family left us in May
 G   D               A
Way hey, wave them away!
      D                  G         D
They hated abortion and also "teh gay"
 G            A                         D
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

They left San Diego and sailed to the west,
Way hey, wave them away!
And those who had noticed all hoped for the best.
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

Complaints about taxes; they had them down pat.
Way hey, wave them away!
Sailing--they weren't so practiced at that!
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

Believing in miracles, hopeful and awed,
Way hey, wave them away!
They left navigation to Fortune and God.
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

And that worked exactly the way you'd expect,
Way hey, wave them away!
They ended up drifting, their sailboat half-wrecked.
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

A cargo boat found them, and gave them a hand;
Way hey, wave them away!
A fishing boat ferried them kindly to land.
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

The land they were leaving stepped up at that time,
Way hey, wave them away!
To fly them back home on the taxpayer's dime!
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away!

I wish them the best as new plans they conceive
Way hey, wave them away.
May it work better the next time they leave!
Hope for the best and we'll wave them away.
Hope for the best, we can hope for the best,
Let us hope for the best, as we wave them away!
