  • Song Lyrics:
    I went to the water
    To find me an otter
    When I found one
    I sat down and taught her
    She had something
    To teach me, too.
    She had somewhere
    To lead me through.

    I thought I was crazy
    Everything got hazy
    She spoke with her eyes
    Her name was Tracy.
    She said something
    Really strange.
    She said something
    I couldn't explain.

    Your luck is bad?
    Can't find love?
    I know a secret.
    Your luck will change
    Love will come.
    I know a secret:

    She broke into laughter
    As I ran after
    Almost caught her
    She was faster.
    I remember
    She sang to me.
    I remember
    She dove in the sea.

    Then she said something

    Mama like the mongoose
    Mongoose takes the cake
    Mongoose save baby
    From a belly ache.

    Mama like the mongoose
    Mongoose takes the cake
    Mongoose save baby
    From the cobra snake.


    I started to speak
    To call out her name
    The surf was pounding
    All through my brain.
    She was still laughing
    As she dove in the sea.
    She was still laughing
    Laughing at me.

    I never did find her
    I always walk by here
    Sometimes I get lonely
    And watch the moon die here.
    I sing songs
    She taught to me.
    I sing songs
    She taught to me.


    I know a secret.
    **(repeat and fade)**
