​Water Song

This song is by Colin Hay and appears on the album Going Somewhere (2001).

This boy and girl were lovers
Came from different towns
Now they both live in the same one
See each other round

He saw her at the rose bowl
Just the other day
She showed him what she bought there
And they struggled for what to say

They say we're made mostly of water
So how come we can't find the sea?
They say true love creeps up on you slowly
Oh how blind some people can be

This boy and girl had troubles
Lasted fifteen rounds
Both threw in the towel
No one took the crown

And time it tends to pass us
As we look the other way
Now he sells insurance
And she's in a non-union play

Oh how I wish we were like water
We'd float on down into the sea
If you find true love at your door knocking
Invite her in make her some tea

This boy and girl were lovers
Came from different towns
Now they both live in the same one
See each other round

They say we're made mostly of water
So how come we can't find the sea?
They say true love creeps up on you slowly
Oh how blind some people can be
