  • Don't go near the water
    Don't you think it's sad
    What's happened to the water
    Our water's going bad

    Oceans, rivers, lakes and streams
    Have all been touched by man
    The poison floating out to sea
    Now threatens life on land

    Don't go near the water
    Ain't it sad
    What's happened to the water
    It's going bad

    Don't go near the water
    Don't go near the water

    Toothpaste and soap will make our oceans a bubble bath
    So let's avoid an ecological aftermath
    Beginning with me
    Beginning with you

    Don't go near the water
    To do it any wrong
    To be cool with the water
    Is the message of this song

    Let's all help the water
    Right away
    Do what we can and ought to
    Let's start today Writer/s: Alan C. Jardine, Mike E. Love
