"Summer: Swimming Song" as written by and Wainwright....
This summer I went swimming
This summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet
And I threw my arms around
And I threw my arms around

This summer I did the swan dive
And jack knife for you all
And once when you weren't looking
Well I did a cannon ball
I did a cannon ball

This summer I swam in the ocean
And I swam in a swimming pool
Salt in my wounds, chlorine in my eyes
I'm a self-destructive fool
I'm a self-destructive fool

The summer I did the backstroke
And you know that that's not all
I did the breaststroke and the butterfly
And the old Australian crawl
And the old Australian crawl

This summer I swam in a public place
And a reservoir to boot
At the latter I was informal
And the former I wore my suit
Yes I wore my swimming suit

This summer I went swimming
This summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet
And I threw my arms around
And I threw my arms around
