Scary Speedo

The speedo scares me
That shiny, blue, sleek suit
The end of me seems near

I must watch out at the rapids
He is always watching
The speedo scares me

For he is lurking in the bushes
Stalking my every move
The end of me seems near

For I must be on my toes 24/7
Checking every corner
The speedo scares me

Lastly, no jokes or dillydallying
Only be focused
The end of me seems near

I hope not to lay eyes on that suit
Or the greek god who possesses it
The speedo scares me
The end of me seems near
