Marilyn Monroe did a night shoot in a pool
Posing naked for a playboy spread
She was old, but she still was cool
When they wrapped right after midnight
And the crew went to the bar
Norma Jean just did the backstroke
Like she was reachin' for a falling star

Beautiful swimmers they know how to move
Slidin' cross the water like a steel guitar
Beautiful swimmers stay in the groove
Riding constant currents near and far

Standing in a tidal pool just east of Baltimore
Watching little blue crabs navigate the eastern shore
Every bayou stream and river in time runs to the sea
Every flounder, tadpole, and soft shell feels the choreography

Beautiful swimmers they know how to move
Sneakin' past the draggers and the oyster bars
Beautiful swimmers just feel the groove
Painting liquid brush strokes like Renoir

I miss my dorsal fin, I can't explain
I'm a big fish outta water
Dwellin' on the coastal plain

Now if I was as rich as the Agacon
I tell you what I would do
Buy every man, woman, and child on this planet
A mask and a snorkel too
Then I'd leave that wild migration
Destination Chesapeake Bay
Then we'd splash our way around the world
Life is just a water ballet

Come all you beautiful swimmers you know how to move
Let's crowd across the water like a steel guitar
Beautiful swimmers stay in the groove
Catching constant currents near and far
