James - Ya Ho

I nearly died, when you jumped in

But you had to drown before you could swim

All the people on the beach, they were so impressed

That they wanted to join you

But no, they wouldn't undress

Or let that wetness splash their skin

So they pray for a whirlpool to pull you in

Ya Ho! Ya Ho!

So they looked away, and they tried to pretend

That it was for you, but, no, it wasn't for them

So the fear of sinking remains in place

But it's the fear of failure that's a real disgrace

Ya Ho! yo yo Ya Ho, yo yo

Let me be the one

To get over your wall

Head in the sand, sea out of reach

Swept away by the games of the beach

Those people sat and watched your stand

And the weight of their fears pulled them underground

Will anyone learn from the stories that are told

Of the tribe who drowned in the grave of gold

Ya Ho, yo yo, Ya Ho, yo yo

Let me be the one...

To take a cool long look with eyes prised wide

To face those fears from which I hide

Ya Ho...

Heads down, someone's calling, but your head's down

Someone's drowning

Look up, see what's before your eyes

Someone escaping or someone drowning

Head's down, you can help them but your head's down

Your head is underground
