Well, she's got me over deep waters
She's got me out on a limb
She's sawed it out from under me
And I ain't even learned to swim

I keep a-scratching at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging of her to love me
But just to be denied

Well, somebody's gonna get wet
Somebody's gonna drown
It looks to me like this will be my
Third time down

Well she wanted me to take her boatin'
She just wants to paddle around
And her I am twenty miles from shore
And she throws my paddler down

She pulled my cork from the boat
And here I'm a-sinking fast
If someone won't come rescue me
I don't know how long I'll last

'Cause, somebody's gonna get wet
Somebody's gonna drown
It looks to me like this will be my
Third time down

Well, she wanted me to take her a-wadin'
She just wants to wet her feet
But here I am up to my neck
In the middle of the famous old creek

I keep a-scratching at the muddy bank
But all I do is slide
I keep a-begging for her to love me
But just to be denied

So, somebody's gonna get wet
Somebody's gonna drown
It looks to me like if this will be my
Third time down...
