Water Today (The Landsmen)

The alarm clock's ringing to welcome the morn,
I pull on my slippers and shiver to warm;
And a cold August wind just got too much to say,
So I ain't going down to the water today,
Water today.
I ain't going down to the water today.

I hear the engines rumble and roar
To the rhythm of waves that are washing the shore;
Now I don't mind working for an honest day's pay,
But I ain't going down to the water today,
Water today.
I ain't going down to the water today.

The Annie lies waiting down by the shore,
She's worth a quarter million or more;
And I owe more money than I'll ever repay,
But I ain't going down to the water today,
Water today.
I ain't going down to the water today.

I've been a sailor most all of my days,
I know the ocean, her thoughts and her ways;
With radio silence, there's nothing to say,
So I ain't going down to the water today,
Water today.
I ain't going down to the water today.
