Dive it off

By the Geall family

I wake up at 6, to make sure I don’t miss,

my dive boat mmm, my dive boat mmm.

They may think I’m crazy, well they ain’t wrong baby,

crazy for Kids Sea Camp mmm, crazy for Kids Sea Camp.

So I keep diving can’t stop, won’t stop diving.

It’s like I got the ocean in my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright, cause the fish are gonna

swim, swim, swim, swim, swim, swim,

and the turtles are gonna flap, flap, flap, flap, flap, flap.

Yeah I’m just gonna — dive, dive, dive, dive, dive

I’m diving on my own diving, on my own got my friends here,

so I not alone, so I’m not alone, 

that’s what they don’t know, mmm, and that’s they know mmm

(Chorus) I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off

Hey, Hey, Hey just think while  you’ve been getting down and out,

about the Lionfish and the dirty, dirty crown of thrones of this world

You could’ve been getting down to 40 feet.

My old friend brought her new dive gear she’s like “Oh My Gosh”

I’m just gonna dive to the fella over there with the really good hair,

won’t you come on over now and we can dive, dive, dive.

(Chorus) I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off, I dive it off
