( Rossi / Young )

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Beacuse it's dirty dirty water
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Many's the times I've asked you to say
Why do you feel so bad day to day
Could it be you're wrong
To push yourself along
I say it's not a guess
You make yourself a mess
And get yourself in deeper water

Why do you think it's all wrong for you
Maybe it's in some things that you do
Baby it's allright
To stay out ev'ry night
If I could change your mind
I'd bring you back in line
To do the things you really oughta

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
And if I could then I'd come in
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Beacuse it's dirty dirty water
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, why do you think it's all wrong for you
Maybe it's in some things that you do
Baby it's allright
To stay out ev'ry night
If I could change your mind
I'd bring you back in line
To do the things you really oughta

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
If I could then I'd come in
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Beacuse it's dirty dirty water

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Beacuse it's dirty dirty water
