Rowing On The Serpentine

I went out one Sunday
with a friend of mine
when I saw you for the first time
rowing on the Serpentine
I was feeling reckless
and the sun did shine
when I saw you for the first time
rowing on the Serpentine

So I jumped into the water
and I played the part of a damsel in distress
and now we both have season tickets
on the circle line
oh yes, we're going every Sunday
rowing on the Serpentine

Not allowed to swim here
can't you read the sign?
You have taken me on board now
rowing on the Serpentine
No, I did not see it
I may be blind
I was dazzled by a stranger
rowing on the Serpentine

So I jumped into the water
and I played the part of a damsel in distress
and now we both have season tickets
on the circle line
oh yes, we're going every Sunday
rowing on the Serpentine

You may think it funny
spending all that time
on a pool of muddy water
rowing on the Serpentine
some make love in chambers
on a bed so fine
others do it in a dinghy
rowing on the Serpentine

So I jumped into the water
and I played the part of a damsel in distress
and now we both have season tickets
on the circle line
oh yes, we're going every Sunday
rowing on the Serpentine

Rowing every Sunday on the Serpentine
