​Underwaterboys

This song is by Shriekback and appears on the album Big Night Music (1986).

We all know fata morgana
She keeps herself to herself
She likes the sound of explosions
You know - some people need nothing else
She has a volatile nature -
Moves in a dangerous way
All the creatures around her:
They keep quiet, or she blows them away

They sing:
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...

There's always fast talking Jonny
He used to get so ill
He spent a while in the country
Now he's clean and serene but he can't stand still
Little Nick wasn't happy -
He felt sick inside
One day he jumped from the window
Into the arms of a Wagnerian bride

Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...

And then there's old Uncle Charlie -
He don't speak any more
He lives one side of a mirror,
A refugee from the chemical wars
A critical disposition -
He likes to eat his own hands
His principle motivation
Is a special secretion from a secret gland

He sings:
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
Singing
Wha diddle iddle I doh
Down here - the underwaterboys...
