lyrics

Aquarians may be quite a handful
But if you treat us right
You’ll find a faithful friend
Unless you get us down
Unless you drive us up walls
Then you’ll wish you had never even met us

We may have a temper
But it’s in hibernation most of the year
It can happen we lose our cool
But we usually keep it together

Aquarians like me
With split personalities
I drive my friends crazy sometimes...
Maybe most of the time

But I don’t mean to
It’s just that I don’t want to have to choose
Who I should be most of the time
I want to be a clown and responsible
Carefree like a kid but dependable too

Oh what an honour
Oh what an honour
To get to be a carrier of water, a carrier of water
To get to be carried by the wind, carried by the wind
The wind
Oh what an honour

Aquarians may be quite a piece of work
But if you treat us right
We’ll do right by you
And if sometimes we go M.I.A.
It’s not that we’ve forgotten, no

It’s probably just because we’re lost
In one of the worlds we’ve created
But we’ll be back before too long
Aquarians are faithful, faithful friends
