no, no, just water, I'll be fine."

please take my word, for heaven's sake."

"My oxygen is getting low,
I'm coming up now, safe and slow."

"That rock was big, but now I'm free,

"From there they won't all see the flyer,
perhaps I'll climb a little higher?"

"The fish man told me it was cod
but now I'm feeling really odd."

"It's okay, I'm an engineer.
