Mersey Paradise

River splashes against the locks
And I scale the slope
And hope the tracks won’t
Lead me down to dark black pits or
Places where we fall to bits

If she were there I’d hold her down
I’d push her under while she drowns
And couldn’t breathe and claw for air
She doesn’t care for my despair

Or is it me?
The one that’s wrong? (one that’s wrong?)
You see in this heat
River cools where I belong
In my Mersey paradise

As I stare an oil can comes
Sailing by and I feel like
Growing fins and falling in
With the bricks the bikes the rusty tins

I swim along without a care
I’m eating sand when I need air
You can bet your life I’ll meet a pike who’ll
Wolf me down for tea tonight

I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see in this heat
River cool’s where I belong
In my Mersey paradise

I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see it in the sea
River cool’s where I belong

Oh yeah

I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see it in the sea
River cool’s where I belong
In my Mersey paradise
