You love the girl, you love the man
Who slipped away under the sign?
Open your eyes and you'll understand
Who broke your back, the gingerman

We are only learning to dive

You learnt it all when you were five
Holding your breaths to stay alive
Escape from the heat under the fan
Learning to love your Uncle Sam

We are only learning to dive

You love the girl, you love the man
Who slipped away under the sign
Open your eyes I bet you'd understand
Who broke your back, the gingerman

The sign on the door deserved a hand
Holding your breaths to be a man
But down on the floor you'll realise
The caterpillar-crawls and butter-flies
Escape from the heat under the fire
Learning to love our Uncle Sam

We are only learning to dive

Alison, the carousel
Broken hearts, another cell
Leaving here I'll understand
Foreign cars are in demand

Alison, the carousel
Broken hearts, another cell
Leaving here I'll understand
Foreign girls are in demand

Demand, in demand, demand
In demand, in demand

And we are only learning to dive
We are only learning to dive
We were barley learning to dive
