Water

by Barry Louis Polisar

Water started long ago,
Water started long ago,
Water started long ago,
And it's still around

Dinosaurs drank water,
So did pre-historic men,
Women and republicans,
Lyndon Johnson and Ho Chi Minh.
You'd think it'd be gone by now

I need water, so do you.
It comes with thunder and with dew,
From Brighton Beach
To Timbucktu
And in my basement now

First you see a lightning flash,
Pretty soon you hear a splash.
Water causes diaper rash.
A Yo ho ho ho ho.

Water in a sulphus spring is hot,
Water that runs from a river is not,
Too much water makes things rot;
I think I'll drink some now.
