First released on:  Ride, 1989

I went down to the water's edge
bit of line and an old bent pin
just when I thought I'd caught her
first she laughed and then she pulled me in

down among the weeds and tincans
soon the light was getting dim
when she let me up for air
its no time like now to learn to swim

all the sharks have gone to market
all the blackbirds gone to sea
she tells me keep your money
some things you only get for free
