Lyrics

Baby doll, you know your hair
Shines like ink when you're not here
You left before I got here
So how do you know I'm late?
Who's gonna tell me when you
Gonna be on the menu?

Where are the prawns?
Down by the sea
Where are the prawns?
Down by the sea
Where are the prawns?

Cookie pie, the waters rise
Above your legs, beneath your eyes
Already the clouds are drownin'
Even the stars are damp
I'll be awake and dreaming
All of us could go screaming

Where are the prawns?
Down by the sea
Where are the prawns?
Down by the sea
Sea sea sea sea
Sea sea sea sea
Sea sea sea sea
Sea sea sea sea
Sea sea sea se
