I believe submarines
Underneath deep blue seas
Saw the flags: Japanese
No one will believe me

Ran back to the town bar
And I told the people how
I had seen the submarine
And everyone laughed aloud

I did spy periscopes
Dead of night on the eastern coast
The police made them jokes
Told me I'd seen a ghost

Everyone thinks I'm a liar
No one knows the truth
If it was a bigger fire
I would be on the roof

Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay
(Let me go! )
No one trusts what I say
(I don't know! )
Oh my God, no one paid
(Attention! )
Overnight my hair turned gray
(Oh oh oh! )

In the end it boils down to credibility
I had none, so I will die with the secrets of the sea

(Submarine! Can't find me! Submarine! )

Submarine...

(Submarine! )
