Goodby, CV!

It was early morning, yesterday
We battled well before the dawn
And I’m sure you have enjoyed your play
But your ship, it now is gone

Some say "CV's, they're a hassle"
Other’s throw each ship its bone
But for you the game is over
So you must be moving on

Now, I don’t believe that “sky cancer”
Is the undisputed truth
I tend to let most do their thing
If you want to know the truth

But like a mouth that has a canker
CV’s can really be a pain
Just the thought of those Slim Shadies
Sends a shiver through some veins

Without CVs, they'd be gloating
They think their ship’s paint would shine like new
They would never look up at the sky
Their troubles would be few

Goodbye CV, it's been nice
Look’s like you rolled, the wrong dice
Hard to see your point of view
Hope you’ll scream ‘til you are blue

Goodbye Lexi, and your planes
Will we ever play again?
If we do, I’ll send you down in flames
Come tomorrow, I’ll be here again

The Massachusetts, it’s the ship for me
Someone gave it to me for free
In all the oceans, for all my play
It's the ship I'm choosing, every day

So goodbye, CVs, and your plans
This here ship, it nom noms planes

Now, some play CVs, some they don't
And some you just can't tell
And some are good and some are not
And a few, they’ll stomp you well

You can laugh at my Commander
That'll never bother me
Say “spec for AA, it’s your savior”
But I don't pay no heed

Cause I’ll just go on making
All the CV’s sad and blue
I'm always here to make them cry
My CV troubles they are few

The muse hit me this morning when a teammate said "goodby cancer" when I'd merrily sailed into the enemy's base as they were flanking on both sides and suddenly found myself in range of their CV, who then furiously tried to sink me but failed.

I've been learning a bunch of the old songs that I like on my guitar if the chords aren't too complicated and the key signatures don't change too much where I can just use a capo and not have to try to play barre chords. I bought a guitar when I was in high school, over 50 years ago, but have only periodically played it until recently, when I got semi-serious about learning it.

https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com is a really good website for a guitar "tinkerer." It has a simplify button and key change buttons too. If there's a song I like that I can't play, I change the key to one with chords I'm familiar with and then use a capo. I never know what key I'm in -- I just match the chords to my voice.

Here is an example:

This

G#                        G#m
  It was an early morning yesterday.
C#                        G#
  I was up before the dawn.
G#                        G#m
  And I really have     enjoyed my stay.
C#                        G#
 But I must be moving on.
changes to this at capo 4
D                        Dm
  It was an early morning yesterday.
G                        D
  I was up before the dawn.
D                        Dm
  And I really have     enjoyed my stay.
G                        D
 But I must be moving on.
