The Lyrics

Oh baby, don't it feel like hurricanes now
Don't it feel like torrents from the sky
Yeah, I've never known flooding quite like this
Like the Illustrated Man, all covered in rain
Getting wetter and no sight of the end
Baby, no one thought the levee would be missed

The wading is the hardest part
Try to cross the boulevard
It's getting' real old, the inches on the chart
The wading is the hardest part

Well, yeah I might have listened and gotten me out of town
But my old car was broken down
Then there were those who did what they should
But now I'm in good as through slush I plow
Baby, this is not much fun, I'm in it deep now
I wish I'd learned to swim, cause I oughta know how

The wading is the hardest part
Try to cross the boulevard
It's getting' real old, the inches on the chart
The wading is the hardest part

Don't let is spill you, baby
Don't let it soak you through
Don't let it fill you baby
Try not to catch the flu
Keep up your breathin' part
It's just a swimming pool
Just stand here on my car
And wait for the rescue
