Otter in the Water

Album: To All Purple Tree Trunks

Lyrics

I’m an otter in the water and I skip and teeter totter On the rocks and in the ocean blue I’m so glad you came to visit me, just loosen up and you can be An honorary otter, too

It’s lots of fun to be an otter, dip your big toe in the water Then jump in, come on, the water’s fine If you’d only quit delaying you’d be giggling and playing In an honorary mind

But you say, “I don’t know how!” You know, but you forgot, so pay attention Your smile is upside down and not to mention That stuffy attitude has got to come unglued Learn to laugh and pretty soon you’re in the otter mood (It’s called an otter-tude!) Ho, ho, ha, ha, hee hee hee hee heee!

Oh, my fotter was an otter and my mother was the dotter Of an otter and on down the line We’ve been goofin’ off and fishin’ in the proud otter tradition Since the very dawn of otter time

But you say, “It’s just not me! I’m a grouch and have no wish to be a phony...” But that’s just a big old crock of abalone Because the real you is happy through and through I’ll guarantee you’d be amazed if you only knew! Yes, it’s true! Ho, ho, ha, ha, hee hee hee hee heee!

As an honorary otter you don’t have to love the water You don’t have to have a furry face 'Cause when all is said and done the honorary otter is the one Who floats around in otter space

So don’t wait for this world to change After all, it’s only what you choose to make it Find the love and you’ll no longer have to fake it The love that’s deep inside where all the mysteries hide Catch the wave and you’ll be surfin’ that eternal tide - deep and wide Ho ho, ha, ha, hee hee hee hee heee!

I’m an otter in the water and I skip and teeter totter On the rocks and in the ocean blue I’m so glad you came to visit me, just loosen up and you can be An honorary otter, too I’m so glad you came to visit me, just loosen up and you can be An honorary otter, too
