Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Look at this stuff, isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Verse 2
Look at this trove, treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you'd think
Sure, she's got everything
Verse 3
I've got gadgets and gizmos a plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs? I've got twenty!
But who cares? No big deal,
I want more
Verse 4
I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancing
Verse 5
Walking around on those
What do you call 'em? Oh, feet
Verse 6
Flipping your fins you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a
What's that word again?
Verse 7
Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wandering free
Wish I could be, part of that world
Verse 8
What would I give if I could live
Out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day
Warm on the sand?
Verse 9
Betcha' on land, they'd understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women, sick of swimming
Ready to stand
Verse 10
And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions
And get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
Verse 11
When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that shore up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world
