Dirty Water
Lyrics & Melody by Polly Wood  ©1995

 

DIRTY WATER

Dirty water, so good

Dirty water, you would

If you could swim around me.

 

Dirty water, if flows.

Dirty water, well it knows

How to bend and shape 

To the world as it grows.

 

Dirty water, it trickles down

Past my toes into the ground.

It flows past rocks and sticks and roots

It flows past rocks and sticks and roots

It flows past rocks and sticks and roots 

And grass and glass and things.

Makes me wonder to the sky 

Just what you'll bring when you pour down

Like dirty rain.

 

Dirty rain, so good.

Dirty rain, well its misunderstood.

If you run into the house or you hide under your coat

Come back out, come back out, come back out, I said come back out.

Come back out, come back out, come back out, I said come back out.

Come back out and listen to the dirty rain

What she's saying, dirty rain.

What she's saying, dirty rain.

 

Dirty water, so good.

Dirty rain, well its misunderstood.

Dirty rain, so good.

Dirty water, misunderstood me.

You misunderstood me, you misunderstood me.

 

I don't want to stand under you.

No, I certainly wouldn't want to be standing over you.

But I do want to be standing next to you.

Next to you, next to you, next to you.
