The Swimming Song Lyrics

This summer I went swimming
This summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet and I moved
my arms around
I moved my arms around

This summer I swam in the ocean
And I swam in a swimming pool
Salt my wounds, chlorined my eyes
I’m a self-destructive fool
I'm a self-destructive fool

This summer I did the back stroke
And you know that that’s not all
I did the breast stroke and the butterfly
And the old Australian crawl
The old Australian crawl

This summer I swam in a public place
And a reservoir to boot
At the latter I was informal
At the former I wore my suit
I wore my swimming suit

Oh, this summer I did swan dives
And jack-knives for you all
And once when you weren’t looking
I did a cannon-ball
I did a cannon-ball

This summer I went swimming
This summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet and I moved
my arms around
I moved my arms around
