The Lyrics

over by the dock there, is the safety that we get..
not much there, but still it's fair..
you sail with no regrets
you forgot to learn them,
those swimming strokes sometime.
You'll say you'll just depend..
and I say.. oh you're blind..
you'll...

swim swim swim, what if you're unable to swim?
then your hopes are really dim
you'll drown in the sea, sea sea,
turtle food's your new destiny
it's sink or it's swim

don't know why you did that..
stupid does and is...
don't know why , I thought you'd die
beneath the waves it is..
I don't want to save you
'cause you can't have it both ways
there's one too many of us..
you're goin' beneath the waves..

swim swim swim, what if you're unable to swim?
then your hopes are really dim
you'll drown in the sea, sea sea,
turtle food's your new destiny
it's sink or it's swim

if you wannt I can teach you
just exactly what you need quick
it's goodbye and over the side
then I toss you a brick

swim swim swim, what if you're unable to swim?
then your hopes are really dim
you'll drown in the sea, sea sea,
turtle food's your new destiny
you'll be dead very soon, you will see..
because you can't swim
