Once I Went in Swimmin'

Once I went in swimmin'
Where there were no women
Down by the deep blue sea

Seeing no-one there,
I hung my underwear
Upon a willow tree

Dove into the water
Just like Pharoh's daughter
Dove into the Nile

Someone saw me there
And stole my underwear
And left me with a smile

From the singing of Harry Cook
note: Third verse from the singing of Florence Greene. RG
