May I give you some good advice
May save your life one day
Before you take pleasure
You should think twice
Or else you have to pay

You can drink French champagne
'Til the night is gone
But don't drink the water
In this world you can have all you want
But don’t drink the water

Lying on the sand on the Jersey shore
Opened up my eyes
They say life is a beach
But I'm not so sure
It made me realize

You can sit in the sun
And watch your skin burn
But you can't swim in the water
There's garbage on a barge
And it's in your front yard
And you can't swim in the water

I may stumble
I may fall
Won't you please pick me up
Or at least give me a call
And if I get a thirst
A thirst that could kill
Pour me a glass
Of cool clear water

Up in the highlands of beautiful green
It's a drinker's paradise
Overhead fighters make sounds so obscene
I swear up at the skies

After Chernobyl
I drink Scotch that's old
But I don't, don't drink the water
You can sit by the stream
Until you get cold
But don't drink the water

I may wander
I may stray too far
I may often stumble
From the whiskey in the jar
But I no longer hide my face
or try to run away
It's time to join the human race
And make the bastards pay

May I give you some good advice
May save your life one day
Before you take pleasure
You should think twice
Or else you have to pay

You can drink French champagne
'Til the night is gone but
Don’t drink the water
In this world you can have all you want
But don't drink the water

But don't drink the water
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Don't drink the water
Don't drink the water
