about

This is a kids song recorded live in front of a bunch of cool 4th graders. Over the years it has become a great way to start a summer camp program or one of those end of the year school assemblies that are less "educational" and more about "fun" and having a great summer. So Dive in!

lyrics

The Pool Rap

Song # 221 | 7/13/94 | CD: New Songs/Ancient Stories

Refrain:
I can dive to the bottom of the pool where it’s cool
I can dive to the bottom of the pool…

I’m treasure hunting for gold doubloons
And I’m holding my breath so I go to find ‘em soon
As soon as I got ‘em I can push off the bottom
And EXPLODE to the surface like a porpoise on purpose
Take a breath of fresh air…
Time to go back there!

Refrain:

Under the waves it’s like a cave
And I’m feeling very, very, very brave
Til I hark to the bark of a great white shark
And it’s coming to get me (save me, save me!)
I scream out loud but only bubbles come out
blub, blub, blub
Why can’t anyone hear me shout?
EXPLODE to the surface, like a porpoise on purpose
Take a breath of fresh air…
Time to go back there!

Refrain:

Now I am an Octopus
I let my arms and legs go to mush
My tentacles flutter…
My skin is like blubber… soft as butter…
“HEY!” SOMEONE just pinched me on my tush!
EXPLODE to the surface, like a porpoise on purpose
Take a breath of fresh air…
Time to go back there!

Refrain:

Oh, oh. I’m getting hungry
(Hungry, hungry, hungry)
I wonder if that Good Humour Man
is out there with his ice cream stand
I hope my mom brought lots of money
Cause I want something yummy for my tummy
EXPLODE to the surface, like a porpoise on purpose
Take a breath of fresh air…

Refrain: (variation: I can Rise...)

THERE’S ICE CREAM THERE!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
I’ll take a snow cone, and a chocolate eclair….

ummmm ummmmmmm

You want some too?
….FORGET IT! I never learned to share!

Hey!

Quit that poking! I was only joking
You can have a lick but you better do it quick
I think it’s about to fall of the stick!

eeeeew-you …. It just went splurt in the dirt.

You better RUN!

I’m gonna git you! :o)

about

Mark Shepard Albany, New York

Welcome to my “Life In Song” project.

Since 1976, I’ve been obsessively and compulsively writing songs. Some of them are inspired by my own life, my attempts to understand love, life, spirituality, peace and justice.

While I recently have started to get a little recognition, you’ve probably never heard my songs ANYWHERE.

But now you can hear them... here... Download. Share. Thanks!
