The Bottomless Lake

Heres the story of a man and his family

And a big trip that they took

Well, I heard all about in a restaurant

And I read it in a history book

They rented a car at the erie canal

But the car didnt have no brake

Said ma to pa my God this car

Is gonna fall into the bottomless lake



Well, mama turned to daddy with a pale face

Said Ive done something horribly wrong

Well, the waters still runnin in the bathtub

And I think I left the kitchen light on

Then I heard a crash the car when splash

And the compass rolled around and around

Oh, for heavens sake! we fell in a lake

And I think were all gonna drown



Chorus:

We are falling down

Down to the bottom of a hole in the ground

Smoke em if you got em

Im so scared I can hardly breathe

I may never see my sweatheart again

Play once after first verse



There was plenty of food in the backseat

And the windows were rolled up tight

So we all nibbled on a chicken leg

Told stories way thru the night

Well, pa told one that he told before

And the baby got a bellyache

Said ma to pa my God this car

Falling down a bottomless lake



Repeat chorus:



Poppa played the music on the radio

Mama rocked the baby to sleep

He said he wouldve taken the other road

But he didnt think the lake was that deep

Well, if the ferry been there at the end of the pier

Wed be half way to uncle jakes

Instead of looking at fish out the window I wish

Wed hit the bottom of the bottomless lake

stead of looking at fish out the window I wish

Wed hit the bottom of the bottomless lake



So if youre ever goin on a big trip

Ya better be careful out there

Start everything on you good foot

And wear clean underwear
