"Dirty Water" as written by and Steven P. Miller Julie Miller....
Well I don't need you hangin round my door
Trying to drag me back down to the shore
And I ain't gonna drink your dirty water no more

Well I got wet from my head down to my legs
And I drank dirty water down to the dregs
But I won't do it again I don't care who begs

Dirty water, now what's that for
Dirty water, I ain't drinking no more
I ain't drinking no more

You've got a lie underneath your tongue where it can't be seen
'Cause you wanna put the truth on a guillotine
But you might as well put out a fire with gasoline

Well you can serve dirty water from a golden cup
You can try to lock up the truth but the door won't shut
'Cause the truth just keeps comin' out like blood from a cut

Mmm comin' out like blood, comin' out like

Well it sparkles and shines but it's just a trick
So we wash it down with a kiss just to get a kick
Ah well that dirty water 'bout to make me sick

Dirty water, now what's that for
Dirty water, I ain't drinking no more
I ain't drinking no more

Well you could try to sweeten dirty water up with grenadine
Ah but I can still read you just like a magazine
And I ain't gonna drink no more till the water runs clean

Dirty water, now what's that for
Dirty water, I ain't drinking no more
I ain't drinking no more, I ain't drinkin'

Now baby you got the kind of love I can't afford
And I don't have a taste for what's in that glass you poured
(Now) I ain't gonna drink that dirty water no more
No, I ain't gonna drink that dirty water no more
I ain't drinking that dirty water, no more, woo woo woo woo, no more
