Barenaked Ladies - In the Drink Lyrics

I'm in the drink for love
And I want to drink your love
Swimmin' a swim in the suds
I want to drink your, blood

Up like a rocket, down like the rain
Back and forth like a choo-choo train
I have a secret that just won't keep
All I want to do is brush your teeth

Butterfly kisses
The taste of delicious
I'd like to sip the sap from your tree
And the honey in your tea
Dripping amber drips
Patiently

I'm in the drink for love
And I want to drink your love
Swimmin' a swim in the suds
I want to drink your, blood

Caught a snowflake on my tongue
A feathery crystal in the flavor of gum
Dropping clouds fallin' fast
Are you going to try some while they last?
Once the birds have migrated
Come spring twitterpated

Up the river I journey on
'Cause this salmon is ready to spawn

If you have some swimming lessons
It would make it easier
I'm in the drink for love
And I want to drink your love
Swimmin' a swim in the suds
I want to drink your, blood
