So FINAL cut (and moderator, please move to jazz/R & B lyrics---gee, I wish there was a page for 'standards'. Trying to lose the 'jazz' curse, er, I mean 'label'...)

SMALL CRAFT WARNING Joel Fass © 2017 Exemplar (ASCAP)

A1
Once love was smooth sailing---guided by
Light of a peaceful morning---now it’s
Dark, clouds have gathered---will it
Soon start hailing?
Small craft warning

A2
Is love now
Drifting towards a frightful sky and sea? Will a
Day of danger soon be dawning, wretched
Winds blowing hard on you and me?
Small craft warning

B
Our love was serenity
Docked at a blissful bay---then temp-
Tation climbed on deck, so we cheated, (just a peck), and now
Peace and happiness have sailed away

C
Will we keep drifting out yonder, heading
Right for the gathering storm? Can we
Still head back for shore and serenity? Will we
Flee? Or will love stay lost at sea if we ignore---the
Small----craft---warning? (2nd x): Dawning...

Hey, don't feel too bad for him. He's still got Tennile.

This is no longer a 'work in progress'. I guess closest category would be jazz---even though it's a rhumba.

And here's the sheet music:

But it doesn't belong HERE anymore. Thanks, Joel
