Like a duck

You were a fish remembering it was a fish.
You were a jet ski instructor.
You were Marti Pellow coming up with band names.
You were Kevin Costner in Waterworld.
You were Michael Phelps with his knackers out.
You were Free Willy.
You were a 50m badge sewn to a Speedo.
You were a hot and cold tap cocktail.
You were condensation down a champagne glass.
You were serenading dolphins in their language.
You were every puddle and every river
and every lake and every ocean
ever created on a planet designed for you.
You were just a clueless baby
forced to have a bath.
