Something In the Water
featuring Bob Seger originally performed by Jeffrey Steele (one of its songwriters) Something in the Water She don't look like her mother, nothin' like her father How else can you explain it? Must be somethin' in the water Pigtails, overalls, freckles on her face Skinny as a toothpick turned sideways Somethin' happened to her when she turned 16 From a little Dixie chicken to a Mississippi queen Spent her days fishin' with a bamboo cane Every night skinny dippin' in the Ponchartrain If you were livin', breathin', had two feet You'd be drawn to that girl cause she look so sweet You could always find her when the night time fell Crankin' off a bucket from that old stone well Drinkin' from her hand, dancin in the moon She don't look like her mother, nothin' like her father How else can you explain it? Must be somethin' in the water I'll never forget that look in her eyes The night she snuck me down to the riverside She wrapped herself around me like a honeysuckle vine Louisianan taste of wild cherry wine You could always find her when the night time fell Crankin' off a bucket from that old stone well Drinkin' from her hand, singin' at the moon She don't look like her mother, nothin' like her father Folks 'round here say it's somethin' in the water Two straight months without any rain We never, ever saw that girl again But I still got a picture burnin' in my head Dancin' in a downpour, soakin' wet You could always find her when the night time fell Crankin' up a bucket from that old stone well Drinkin' from her hand, howlin' at the moon She don't look like her mother, nothin' like her father How else can you explain it? Must be somethin' in the water Don’t look like her mother, nothin' like her father Folks 'round here say it's somethin' in the water There must be something in the water now Hey hey Way down in the water Somethin’ in the water Somethin’ in the water Way down in the water There’s somethin’ in the water Must be somethin’ in the water
