Our Swimming Pool

We aren't nobodies fool

sitting here in our swimming pool

Underneath an old shade tree

to escape the hot summer heat.

 

Over a hundred every day

the only time we want to play

Is right here in our swimming pool

that's where we are keeping cool.

 

We would like to be at the beach

but that's farther now than we can reach

In some ocean and up to our neck

instead of in the sun all covered in sweat.

 

Low heat's in the oven and high heat's outside

to bake us and boil us and then tan our hides

But sipping the bubbly we aren't nobodies fool

while wrinkling like prunes in our swimming pool.

 

After a hot day in the sauna factory

got to get somewhere out of this heat

Home to the air conditioner and shower

a hop in the pool till the midnight hour.

 

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

except for the sun on this hot July morn

Behind our house there is no river or lake

but anywhere around it you are sure to bake.

 

Neighbors from up and down the street

ran with inner tubes and snorkel tubes to be

Right here in our swimming pool

escaping the heat and keeping cool.

 

Low heat's in the oven and high heat's outside

to bake us and boil us and then tan our hides

But sipping the bubbly we aren't nobodies fool

while wrinkling like prunes in our swimming pool.
