"Swing Gently" as written by and Leona Naess....
Dive, dive down
In the deep dark waters
Swim your body to me
Look for shelter
Caves of Gibraltar
Maybe some pearls for me

Swing swing gently
Sweet sweet music
Waves outline the sea
And I never told you that I was sorry
Maybe you're sorry too

I can't tell you that i won't hurt you
But I'll promise to try
Everybody wants a piece of pie, honey
I just want him alive

So dumb, dumb down
Let me steal your crown
Let me wear your favorite coat
You know the one you bought in old New York
Its buttons have all been worn down
And we'll walk to sixth and we'll take the fifth
But I know you'll never lie
And you'll wear the tie that only I
Could've ever bought for you
And we'll catch a cold at the next drum roll
And skip the morning news

I can't tell you that i won't hurt you
But I'll promise to try
Everybody wants a piece of pie, honey
I just want him alive

Dive, dive down
In the deep dark waters
Swim your body to me

Swing, swing gently
Sweet, sweet music
Waves outline the sea

Dive, dive down
In the deep dark waters
Swim your body to me

Swing, swing gently
Sweet, sweet music
Waves outline the sea

Dive, dive down
In the deep dark waters
Swim your body to me

Swing, swing gently
Sweet, sweet music
Waves outline the sea

Dive, dive down
In the deep dark waters
Swim your body to me

Swing, swing gently
Sweet, sweet music
Swing your body to me...
