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 somethin' 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
