I don’t care if it’s cool …
I ask the night guard about his friend named Bob

Newton Wave Pool
It’s a place where I don’t have to say I’m fine
… it’s not about standing in line
But being kind … for I found when I signed another’s dotted line …
I was unable to climb …
… so my voice went unheard …
Except here …

Newton Wave Pool
Here my vocabulary was formed
My words weren’t taken from me.
Enhanced through sports
Allowed to climb
Where I don’t have to say I’m doing fine …

When you’re at Newton Wave Pool
You’ll feel alive
So come and unwind …

And don’t forget to wave at Bob!
