Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Because it's dirty, dirty water
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Many's the times I've asked you to say
Why do you feel so bad day to day?
Could it be you're wrong
To push yourself along?

I say, it's not a guess
You make yourself a mess
And get yourself in deeper water

Why do you think it's all wrong for you?
Maybe it's in some things that you do
Baby, it's alright to stay out every night
If I could change your mind
I'd bring you back in line
To do the things you really oughta

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
And if I could then I'd come in

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Because it's dirty, dirty water
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, why do you think it's all wrong for you?
Maybe it's in some things that you do
Baby, it's alright to stay out every night
If I could change your mind
I'd bring you back in line
To do the things you really oughta

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
If I could then I'd come in

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Because it's dirty, dirty water

Oh, oh, oh, oh
The water's getting deep
And I can't swim
Because it's dirty, dirty water
