Took my money at the pearly gate
Yeah, that's where they make me wait
I was in quite a state
By the time I made it in

Got a towel and a change of clothes
How this feels no one knows
'Til they've tried it once

'Cause I've never seen such a beautiful sight
Sparkle shimmer, blue and white, yeah
Something about it feels so right

This ain't no Ferris wheel
This certainly ain't no stupid school
Take off your shoes if you choose
'Cause it's a public pool

There were kids running all over the place
With scabbed up knees and scratched up face
Parents gone without a trace
All running for the water

Jumping off the diving board
My best friend keeping careful score
With my toes I could touch the floor

Kids come, rich or poor
Some are loved, some ignored
But we all hear that lifeguard roar
Just the same

There's only just one place and time
Only one way to pass the time
If you're young and hot and it's summertime
Then you've got it made in the shade
