water lyrics – the who

the foreman over there hates the gang
the poor people on the porch get it so rough
the truck driver drives like a devil
the policemen – they’re acting so tough
they need water
good, good water
we need water
and i’m sure there ain’t one of us here
who’d say, “no” to somebody’s daughter
(no… no…. no… no… no…)

sampson seems sorta sweaty
the draftsmen- they smudged their work
the captain of a ship is swimming
then just wore off a keen bank clerk

we need water
good, good water
we need water
and maybe somebody’s daughter

c’mon, gimme good water
c’mon, gimme good water
c’mon, gimme good water
please don’t refuse me, mister
i’ve seen your daughter at the oasis
and i’m beginning to blister

a chevrolet just made steam
your crop is laying foul
my gr*ss skirt’s lost its green
i’m alive, but i don’t know how

we need water
good, good water
we need water
and maybe somebody’s daughter

gimme good water

indian lake is burnin’
new york’s skyline is hazy
the river thames is turnin’ dry
the whole world is a-blazin’

we need water
good, good water
we need water
and maybe somebody’s daughter

ah, gimme what i need

please, water, water, water, water, water, water

gimme water
water
water
(water…)
and i’m sure there ain’t one of us here
who’d say “no” to somebody’s daughter
(oh, no)
whoa…
no, no, no, no, no…
no, whoa
