"my life, my lover, my lady is the sea"

write a song under three minutes in the traditional style of yacht rock for a
late night cruise
well produced melodic tunes that contain elements of jazz, funk, and blues
typically including complex and wry lyrics, perfect for dancing on your fifty million dollar
super-yacht into the early morning hours

some examples include:
what a fool believes - the doobie brothers
rosanna - toto
FM - steely dan

lyrics must contain reference, or be partially themed
in relation to at least one of the four topics
- the ocean
- "fools"
- a nighttime party
- escapism
