Beautiful Swimmers they know how to move
Slidin' cross the water like a steel guitar
Beautiful Swimmers stay in the groove
Riding constant currents near and far
Standing in a tidal pool just east of Baltimore
Watching little blue crabs navigate the eastern shore
Every bayou stream and river in time runs to the sea
Every flounder, tadpole, and softshell feels the choreography
There all Beautiful Swimmers who know how to move
Sneakin' pass the draggers and the oyster bars
Beautiful Swimmers just feel the groove
Painting liquid brush strokes like Renoir

Good-bye and fare ye well; for we'll sail no more together,
Broad seas and narrow in fair or foul weather:
We'll sail no more together in foul weather or fine,
And ye'll go your own way, and I'll go mine.

How to Eat Various Foods:
Fresh Fruits (except citrus): At the table, either the American or Continental way. Continental is to skin the fruit, halve and stone it, then cut into small pieces and eat with a fork. The American way is to halve, quarter, and stone the fruit with the knife and fork, but not skin it (except peaches); eat the quarters with a fork. Fresh grapes and cherries are eaten whole; remove pits with the fingers; place on side of plate.

Rule 31: Seaplanes
The International and Inland versions of this short Rule are the same. For obvious reasons, airplanes may have difficulty complying with navigation light requirements that were written for ships.
