The Olympic Pool
Slightly impaired on a Sunday night "How the hell'd I get here, up on this high dive," I thought As I bounced gently on its spring Sadie behind me looking too sultry So much so that it's inebriating And I'll do anything she says Shiny wet skin and cutoff jeans On the top wrung, patiently waiting She doesn't think I'll jump But to our surprise I bend my knees Gather my courage and fling My body from the board And the water is warm but the water cannot not cleanse me And the water is not holy, but nor is it unholy Not holy nor unholy, not holy nor unholy Sadie showed up to confiscate me Late at night as I was brushing my teeth Preparing for sleep The air outside about 90 degrees She asked to ride bikes despite the heat Of course, I obliged Pedaled by the University She saw a lit sign that she deemed intriguing It said The Olympic Pool Passed a flask out in front of the door She reached in her jeans and produced a stolen key She'd planned this in advance And the water is warm but the water cannot cleanse me And the water is not holy, but nor is it unholy Not holy nor unholy, not holy nor unholy I am merely a device Through which she often likes To have a real cool time And I don't really mind Sadie, Sadie, Sadie She is not my kind
