Dirty water is what makes the world go 'round.

Think about it.

We all drink water. 'Course, it isn't really pure water. It's dirty water. Some places have dirtier water than others.

And our blood is made up of dirty water. Filthy water, really. It's all rusty (being full of iron), and it has icky proteins in it.

Our bodies are made of water, too. They are made of putrid water. Water that has gotten so icky and nasty that it has solidified, grown hair, and started walking around.

Now that is dirty water.

And don't forget this: When you mix acids and bases, you get dirty water. (It's salty)

Dirty water makes the world go 'round.

A #11 hit for The Standells in 1966, "Dirty Water" is played at the end of every Red Sox victory at Fenway Park...


 
   I'm gonna tell you a story
   I'm gonna tell you about my town
   I'm gonna tell you a big fat story, baby
   Aww, it's all about my town...

Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles
    Aw, that's what's happenin' baby!
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, muggers, and thieves
    Aw, but they're cool people!

Well, I love that dirty water...
Oh, Boston, you're my home!
    Oh, you're the Number One place!

Frustrated women
    I mean they're frustrated!
Have to be in by twelve o'clock
    Oh, that's a shame!
But I'm wishin' and a-hopin, oh
That just once those doors weren't locked
    I like to save time for my baby to walk around!

Well, I love that dirty water...
Oh, Boston, you're my home!
    Oh, yeah!

Because I love that dirty water...
Oh, oh, Boston, you're my home!
    Oh, yeah!

Well, I love that dirty water!
    I love it, baby!
I love that dirty water!
    I love Boston!
I love that dirty water!
    Have you heard about the Strangler?
I love that dirty water!
    I'm the man, I'm the man!
I love that dirty water!
    Owww!
I love that dirty water!
    Come on, come on!


 
Oddly enough, The Standells were from Los Angeles.
