Well, she's got me over deep waters
She's got me out on a limb
She's sawed it out from under me
And I ain't even learned to swim.

I keep a-scrathing at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging of her to love me
But just to be denied.

Well, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like if this will be
My third time down.

Well she wanted me to take her boatin'
She just wants to paddle around
And her I am twenty miles from shore
And she throwed my paddler down

She pulled my cork from the boat
And here I'm a-sinking fast
If someone won't come rescue me
I don't know how long I'll last.

'Cause, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like this will be
My third time down.

--- Instrumental ---

Well, she wanted me to take her a-wadin'
She just wants to wet her feet
But here I am up to my neck
In the middle of the famous old creek.

I keep a-scrathing at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging for her to love me
But just to be denied.

So, somerbodies gonna get wet
Somebodies gonna drown
It looks to me like if this will be
My third time down...
