"Coldwater Canyon" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
coldwater coldwater canyon
he said he wanted to know her
he had this place in the canyon
he said he wanted to show her
coldwater coldwater canyon
he said in a dulcet tone
let's go to my place in the canyon
where we can be alone

well he had a bed that was covered
with tiger skin
it was a non-ecological scene
and she felt so scared
'cause its teeth were bared
and its smile
was righteously mean
he had a water mattress
and a vibrating pillow
designed for decreasing the tension
he had a stereo set
in the headboard yet
and it was featuring
the fifth dimension
high
in a nook on the opposite wall
disguised in a driftwood frame
compatible color tv
tuned to channel three
showing "hunchback of notre dame"
and a huge aquarium
with neon lights
she was quite taken back
by the sharks
and a myna bird
she distinctly hearts
making absolutely
rude remarks

coldwater coldwater canyon
he said he wanted to know her
he had this place in the canyon
he said he wanted to show her
coldwater coldwater canyon
he said in a dulcet tone
let's go
to my place in the canyon
where we
can be
alone

well
ain't it great he said
to be all alone?
oh it's a young girl graduate's wish
but then the room went blank
when she looked at the tank
and saw a fish
eat another fish
and the hunchback rang
those notre dame bells
and the bird yelled something risque
about balloon ascension
while the fifth dimension
rendered up up up up up
up up and away

he had
his headphones on
and he was gettin' it off
he had an amy popper in his nose
so he never did see her
leave the room
he never did hear the
screen door close
and she ran ran wild
like a paranoid child
and nothing was aware
of her flight
except the eye
of the sleeping sky
and the ear
of the infinite
still and silent night

coldwater coldwater canyon
poor baby she should have known
coldwater coldwater canyon
you got not grace
if you go no place
to be
alone
