Lyrics

[Intro]
Oh-Oh-Ooh
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

[Verse]
Heaven, were you so?
Give nothing na-na-na-na for
Nothing left, I love you so
How's it old now? What do you so?
Get me on the floor and
Then bring it really slow
Slow, slow
Left it locked down, you thought
Give my man another boat now

[Chorus]
You don't wanna let me down
'Cause you don't really feel like drowning
And you can't make a sound
When you're underwater drowning
Maybe we should warn you now
There's a clock in the kitchen that's counting
We won't let you make a sound
'Cause we don't really feel like drowning
