Sock it to me

Floatin' down the river
With a saturated liver
And I wish I could forgive her
But I do believe she meant it
When she told me to forget it
And I bet she will regret it
When they find me in the morning wet and drowned
And the word gets 'round

Goin' down
Goin' down

Coming' up for air
It's pretty stuffy under there
I'd like to say I didn't care
But I forgot to leave a note
And it's so hard to stay afloat
I'm soakin' wet without a boat
And I knew I should have taken off my shoes
It's front page news

Goin' down
Goin' down

I wish, I had another drink
It wouldn't be so hard to sink
I should have taken time to think
Besides I got the picture straight
She must have had another date
I didn't need this extra weight
I wish that I could see the way to shore
I don't want no more

Goin' down
I'm goin' down

And now I see the life I led
I slept it all away in bed
I should have learned to swim instead
And now it's really got me stumped
I can't believe why I jumped
I'd like to get my tummy pumped
I can't believe they drink this stuff in town
This dirty brown

Goin' down
Goin' down
I'm goin' down
Goin' down
I'm down
I'm down
Goin' down
Goin' down
Goin' down
Goin' down

I wish, I looked before I leaped
I didn't know it was so deep
Been down so far I don't get wet
Haven't touched the bottom yet
This river scene is gettin' old
I'm hungry, sleepy, wet and cold
She told me to forget it nice
I should have taken her advice

I only want to go on home
I'd gladly leave that girl alone
What a way to spend the night
If I don't drown, I'll die of fright
My pappy taught me how to float
But I can't swim a single note

He threw me in to teach me how
I stayed there floatin' like a mama cow
And now I've floated way down stream
I know this has to be a dream
If I could find my way to shore
I'd never, never do this anymore
I'll give you three, I've been down nine
I'm goin' down just one more time

Goin' down
Goin' down
Goin' down
Goin' down
I'm goin' down
Goin' down
I'm goin' down
Goin' down
I'm goin' down
I'm goin' back home

Back to my friend
Back to the world
Back to tutor
I'm goin' home

Now the sky is gettin' light
An everything will be alright
Think I finally got the knack
Just floatin' here lazy on my back
I never really liked that town
I think I'll ride the river down
Just movin' slow and floatin' free
There's a river swingin' under me

Waving back to the folks on shore
I should have thought of this before
I'm floatin' on down to New Orleans
And pick up on some swingin' scenes
I know I'll know a better day
I'll go down groovin' all the way

Goin' down
I'm goin' goin' down
I'm goin' down
New Orleans
Back home
I'm goin' goin' down
Goin' down
Goin' goin' goin' down
I'm goin' down
Goin' down
Gotcha go back home
I'm goin' down
Down, down, down
Got to go, got to go, got to go
