Oh when you tune off his tapper, but you gain all of the crapper
A lotta huss, a little muss, but don't you make a fuss

It's dirty water, it's only dirty water

It's only dirty water,
             E
And it's all gonna run clean someday

Leave a little time, won't ya drink your little wine
In the meantime wade in the [?] 
Dirty water, it's only dirty water
It's only dirty water and it's gonna run clean someday
