Down By The Water

Cod Beck Reservoir
Is a man made lake
Try not to go there
It's a big mistake
Try and stay up
In the beautiful hills
Not down there
By the water that kills
It can suck you in
Or spit you out
And freeze you
If you try to shout
There are no cod
But trout are wild
And might just eat
A wandering child
So if you go there
Please do pledge
To stay away
From the edge
Just walk on round
Stay on track
Keep eyes peeled
And watch your back
One false step
And you might drown
As undercurrents
Pull you down
It's really dangerous
How do I know?
There's a great big sign
That tells me so
