New York Dolls – Drowning lyrics
I swam out too far from the shore
Afraid you won't see me anymore
Out in the middle of a rolling sea
With the waves and the water washing over me

Mama!
Don't let me down
I love you more than I did before
So don't let me drown

I'm drowning in this sea of love
Can't see the land or the sky above
Hurry up, baby, get a hold of me
'Fore the devil in this water set my soul free

Mama!
Don't let me drown
If I still mean anything to you
Don't let me down
Mama!

I'm drowning
I'm not waving hello
I ain't clowning around wit'cha, baby
Don't let me go

If you see me lost and drifting around
Reach out for me, don't let me pull you down
It's over my head, mama, don't let me drown
It's getting so quiet I can't hear a...

MAMA!
Don't let me drown
You swim so much better than me
Don't let me drown

Yeah, mama!
Don't let me drown
Yeah, mama!
Mama!

Don't let me drown...
