The Lyrics

When they see free-flowing water
that will make its way to sea,
they do what ain’t don’t by the otter,
although both live aquatic’lly.
They just can’t stand the flow
of that agua, Wasser, eau.

It makes them feel like damming—
they want to dam it right away.
It makes them feel like damming—
they feel like damming, damming, damming it right away,
they feel like damming.

They have got to get a mooring
so trees like pine hold-hold-hold-hold.
When they hold right, it’s the best dam site—
inside is a comfy home.
First, gotta fell them trees,
and then strip off bark with them teeth.

They have the zeal for damming—
they want to dam and right away!
They’ve zeal for damming, damming, damming it right away
they’ve zeal for damming, damming.
The stands reached way high
but now on pathway lie, ’cause
trees make them feel like champing
(they want to champ ’em right away
That makes them feel like damming—
and get to damming right away.
And get to damming, damming, damming it right away. . . .

The flow is slowed to the ocean;
the pond backs up more and more.
Causes landowners emotion;
the primary one is “sore.”
And temper flares start to soar. . .
gonna blow away obstruction. . .join the fray

It makes them feel like blasting
(they wanna blast and right away).
They have the zeal, start blasting,
but in the tide they’re swept away.
They squeal, “We’re drowning! drowning!! drowning!!!”
Then they slip away.

Possibly because I know the OS, I liked this best of all the Dam songs
