Matthew bring in your fishing nets
have you caught yourself a woman
caught yourself a woman yet
sometimes you call me Melusine
after the Lady of the Fountain in whose lake you took a drink
and boy I know I know that you burn
for your water spirit

Now that I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
to chase the roughest tide that’s right behind me
yes I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
to bring the roughest tide in
Smooth like Dolphin
Smooth like Dolphin

I sought shelter in our child’s room
she and me against the world
safe in our cocoon
you raced a giant roller-skate
and said ‘ the three of us must leave this place
song lines will guide our way’

and boy I know I know that you burn
for your water spirit

Now that I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
To bring the roughest tide that’s right behind me
yes I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
to bring the roughest tide in
Smooth like dolphin
Smooth like dolphin

Matthew bring in your fishing nets
I have been marked by your gospel
this daughter of a preacher man
cause boy I feel
I feel that you burn for your water spirit
cause boy I feel
I feel that you burn for your watergirl

now that I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
to bring the tide that’s racing right behind me
yes I know
I know the lengths that you’d go
to bring the roughest tide in
Smooth like dolphin
Smooth like dolphin
