Default Swim With Dolphins


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsqfV5LD2ck

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet

I'm going to Hawaii
Stroll down Waikiki
See the sun set in the water
I'm gonna live my dreams
I wanna see the stars
Mauna Kea's calling me
I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna know I'm free

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet

solo

I first heard Alan Jackson
When I was just 13
That voice was sent from heaven
It made its mark on me
I made my way to Nashville
To the Grand Ole Opry stage
I heard Alan sing about Jesus
He sang Amazing Grace

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet

Is this lyrics? it is hard to review lyrics without music, imagine "Black" for example, ok that is poetry, never-mind, I wiil continue.

I once watched a very amusing adlib by Sean Lock, in which he described the following scenario: -

"Imagine you went to swim with the dolphins, and they all swam off, and you looked back to shore and your therapist just shrugged and said 'well, I guess it is back to the medication then'"

Ok that is the first line... will continue now...

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet (I wanna do things I haven't done yet)

I'm going to Hawaii
Stroll down Waikiki
See the sun set in the water
I'm gonna live my dreams
I wanna see the stars
Mauna Kea's calling me
I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna know I'm free (I wanna be free)

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet (I ain't)

solo

I first heard Alan Jackson
When I was just 13
That voice was sent from heaven
It made its mark on me
I made my way to Nashville
To the Grand Ole Opry stage
I heard Alan sing about Jesus

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet

I wanna Swim With Dolphins
I wanna cross the ocean on a jumbo jet
I wanna sing country music
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet
I wanna do a lot of things I haven't done yet
