Won't somebody get get me off this reef?


Baby, you're a big blue whale
Grab the reef when all duck divin' fails
I swim, but I wish I never learned
The water's too polluted with germs
I dive deep when it's ten feet overhead
Grab the reef from underneath my bed (underneath my bed)

Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to grow old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off this reef?
I got a gun

Ain't got no quarrels with God
Ain't got no time to get old
Lord knows I'm weak
Won't somebody get me off this reef?
