I’m in the water to make a splash,
To fix mistakes that I’ve made in the past,
I’m in the water to set things right,
To show others why I fight.

I’m in the water to get things done,
To do things right and to have fun,
I’m in the water to save the day,
To do things my way.

I’m in the water to make a splash,
To fix mistakes, to not look back,
I’m in the water to make a difference,
To speak my mind, not to grin and bear it.

I’m in the water to persuade you all,
That to rise you have to fall,
I’m in the water to tell the truth,
Don’t mind me for I’m uncouth.

I’m in the water to change your minds,
To show you what’s wrong and what’s right,
I’m in the water to make a stand,
Not to write a letter and hope you read it.

I’m in the water to stick it to the man,
I’m sticking to my guns and I don’t have a plan,
I’m in the water to show you the damage,
That this government has done to nation.

I’m in the water to help you out,
To cleanse your mind of folly and doubt,
I’m in the water to speak to the man,
To speak to the face of our dear president.

I’m in the water to show you statistics,
To show stuffy congressmen how to be realistic,
I’m in the water to protest war,
And I won’t leave until I’m heard.
