The Lyrics

The original Myrds only without Gene Spark. On rhythm guitar is David Moseby.
Oh, how is it that I could come out to here,
And be still sinkin',
And hit bottom but keep floating up
Just relaxed and paying no attention?

All my three-dimensional boundaries are gone,
I have lost to them badly,
I saw that through. Sinking, I thought I drowned,
But I found my senses still working.
And as I continued to float to the top,
I found all surrounding,
To show me that joy innocently is,
Just be quiet and feel it around you.

(Bridge)
And I opened my heart to the whole swimming pool,
And I found it was loving,
And I saw the great blunder my teachers had made,
Water pressure isn't that high at all.

I will never swim as long as I live,
Ah, without ever,
And I will forget that pool forever,
That was a terrible pool ...

Oh, how is it that I could come out to here,
And be still sinkin',
And hit bottom but keep floating up
Just relaxed and paying no attention?

(Guitar Solo, Fade Out)

Another hit single, number nine on the charts with this song. General Soul is the B-Side

Very Byrdacious, Mr. Hyde. I think Roger McSwim was on 12-string Rickenbacker, as usual. Somehow your parody feels just as ethereal as the original lyrics - not an easy task.
