Found on Harbor.

The waves come in
Crash on the shoreline
Salty water, don't you know
It's yours, yours and mine
So grab your girl
And don't go wastin' time
And let's go down to the water tonight

White capped clouds
Dance in the sunlight
Purple fishes watch
And show you some of their delight
The weather's fine
And everything's all right
So let's go down to the water tonight
Let's go down to the water tonight

Come on down, come on down
Come on down, down to the water
Come on down, come on down
Come on down, down to the water
Down to the water

Island music
Sways with a palm tree
Friends of mine lay back
And talk of times that weren't so free
So let's have fun
And that means you and me
And let's go down to the water tonight
Let's go down to the water tonight.

Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water
Down, down, down to the water ...
