Lost In A Whirlpool

Well, I'm lost in a whirlpool

Yeah, baby, my head is goin' round

Well, ever since my baby flushed me

Oh, been goin' round, yeah round and around

Well, I'm lost in this whirlpool

I keep goin' down and down

There's a big brown fish

Lookin' at me

He ain't got no eyes

How could that motherfucker possibly see

Ooh, baby baby

I'm gonna be afraid it'd gonna touch me

Well I'm lost in this whirlpool

Oh, I can't even see

Baby, won't you come help me

Pour some drainer down,

And get the plunger right after me

I'll let you know a little secret, baby

I'm gettin' tired of all this pee

Don't go stranded, mother goose

Ooh, my head's in a noose . . .
