5 - Let's Go Swimming

© 2009 Sandy O & Pat Humphries, Moving Forward Music, BMI

"One cold, January morning, we stood on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. 200 people had gathered to bring attention to global warming and the need to change our literally fossilized energy policies by commiting to—yes!—jumping into the bay. It was our job to encourage them to take off their clothes . . . for change. See the video."

Take off that coat, unwind that long woolen scarf
Shed the gloves, lose the hat
Let’s go swimming
Kick off your boots, pull off your socks
Leave them right here on the rocks
Let’s go swimming

Oooh when those goosebumps hit the air
Oooh can’t be much more to bare

Unbutton that shirt, those pants
I’m not thinking of romance
Peel off that long underwear
Let’s go swimming
Takin’ the plunge in this cold wintry air
Dive in if you care, let’s go swimming
No time to spare, let’s go swimming
Save that polar bear
Let’s go swimming
