The Lyrics

Sumpy--wet, you've gotta dry after it rains.
Sumpy--especially if you've got a clogged drain.
Oh, the dark waters swirl in basement, not sere,
You gotta pump it out of here.
Sump submerged in slough,
Above: you.

Sumpy--dampness doesn't give fine bouquets.
Sumpy--dankness make it hard to find your way
As through muck and mire you craw
In a space just two feet tall.
Sump pumping in slough,
Submerged: you.

Grumpy--in this dark water, you can't see.
Lumpy--you feel something that makes you want to flee:
Underneath your trembling hand,
A creature not found on land.
Something's in that slough
Besides you.

Thumpy is the tail that's lashing past your face.
Stumpy is your arm when something takes a taste.
In water, you can't respire,
No matter--you'll soon expire.
Slumping in the slough's dining: you.
