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 . . .
