The Lyrics

Recently, due to increased crime in cities, people have been spending less time in the city, and more time in community areas, like the park and pool. And so, perhaps, if you heard a song about evening activites today, it might sound something like this.
Front stroke and backstroke
But when you do no stroke,
And do not tread,
You'll drown!

If there is no
Lifeguard on duty,
And nobody cares,
You'll drown!

They'll rush you to the hospital
And give you a transfusion,
But if you think you're better,
It's probably an illusion.
How can you lose?

You'll see bright lights,
And get troubles,
When you can see, well,
You'll be seeing doubles.

You'll drown!
There will be blood and gore
You'll drown!
There's no worse things for sure
You'll drown!
People are waiting on you.

If you're standing ‘round the pool
And someone pushes you in
And you can't swim,
You'll drown!

Maybe you know someone
Who jumps in to save you,
But they can't swim,
You'll drown!
Just listen to the rhythm
Of the ambulance's siren
If you cannot hear it,
Then you probably are dyin'
Happy again?

You'll drown!
Things will be bad and bright
You'll drown!
Don't wait for me tonight
You'll drown!
Every things going to stink.


Just as they begin to
Understand your situation
They find out you'll have
Bad bi-weekly excelled constipation.
The plumbing is gone

You definitely need fixin'
‘Cause the nurse just turned into
A green Richard Nixon

And You'll drown!
Things will be bad and bright
You'll drown!
Don't wait for me tonight
You'll drown!
Every things going to stink.

You'll Drown...
You'll Drown...
You'll Drown...[repeat forever]
