Careless Kim went for a swim
Where none could hear her shout
She got in to cool her skin
And never did get out

Day break, they drag the lake
And find no body though
But she's there, I know, somewhere below
The emerald undertow
And though I saw her going under
I could only watch in wonder

'Cause I don't swim so well
It's a miracle I'm mobile
At the Choir Girl Hotel
There are teardrops in the water
Another wish in the well
How could I tell
They find I'm a peeping tom, I'm gonna go to Hell

It's late, I'm laughing in my room
Though I don't get the joke
I grind my grin
Throat closes in
As chuckle turns to choke
And though I saw her going under
I could only watch in wonder

'Cause I don't swim so well
It's a miracle I'm mobile
At the Choir Girl Hotel
There are teardrops in the water
Another wish in the well
How could I tell
They find I'm a peeping tom, I'm gonna go to Hell

So here I am, your sleepless little lamb
The water makes me numb
But if six feet deep is the only way to sleep
Then baby, here I come
And though I saw her going under
I could only watch in wonder

You know that I don't swim so well
It's a miracle I'm mobile
At the Choir Girl Hotel
There are teardrops in the water
Another wish in the well
For someone who don't swim so well
But you know time will only tell
Lets hope the feather tips the scale at the gates of Hell
