"Like Swimming" as written by Yannis Barnabas Emanuel Philippakis, Jack William Bevan, James Smith, Edwin Thomas Congreave and Walter James Morrison Gervers....
First I learned to crawl
And then some other strokes
I can never remember any real good jokes

Do you feel like swimming?
Do you feel like swimming?
Yes, right now

I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown

It's a lot like swimming the first time over your head
It gets easier when you move your arms and legs
And for air you lift your head, why don't we try it right now

Yes, right now
Yes, right now

Well, I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown
Well, I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown

We'll go by way of the garden
Fat with tomatoes and beans on the vine
Sweet like the way it was
Like swimming for the very first time

Do you feel like swimming?
Do you feel like swimming?

Well, I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown
I know a way to swim all the way downtown

Do you feel like swimming?
Do you feel like swimming?

    General Commentis it just me, or does it kinda sound like he's referring to "going down" on a woman... perhaps from another woman's perspective?
