Water
 Walking  Walking on water  Walking  Walking on for years and years and years  Taking it into my head
 Living by the right lines
 Reading what the very man said

 Water 
I'm walking  Walking on water  Walking  Walking on

 Lying on eleven years
 Taking it into my head
Mary, Mary drop me softly 
Been reading what your very man said
 Lying on eleven years
 Taking it into my head
 Leave my clothes on the beach 
I'm walking down into the sea

 Prove it to me
 Prove it to me
 Prove it to me

Now the water to my ankles 
Now the water to my knees  Think of him, all waxy wings  Melted down into the sea
Mary, Mary, what your man said
 Washing it all over my head
Mary, Mary, hold on tightly 
Over water, under the sea

Wa-wa-wa-water
Wa-wa-wa-water
I'm walking  Walking on wa-wa-wa-water
I'm walking  Walking on wa-wa-wa-water
 Walking  Walking on wa-wa-wa-water
 Walking  Walking on wa-wa-wa-water
