Lyrics
This wasn’t what I had planned for today.
I was looking for a Sage but I lost my way.
And I found a little compass and a detailed map
But it’s never gonna help me in this water trap.

I’m the only chance this kingdom has to see the light
But I’m stuck inside this temple with no end in sight.
This maze has turned my mind into a nervous wreck.
If I could only get my hands upon the architect!

[chorus]
So put your boots on, take your boots off, put your boots on!
(Stuck in the Water Temple)
So put your boots on, take your boots off, put your boots on!
(Trapped in the Water Temple)
So put your boots on, take your boots off, put your boots on!
(Stuck in the Water Temple)
So put your boots on, take your boots off, put your boots on!
(Trapped in the Water Temple)

I’ve lost all track of time, must be a couple of days
Since I took the plunge and stepped into this endless maze.
This blue tunic means I’m in it for the long haul
But I’m tempted just to take it off and end it all.

[chorus]

Footnotes
I can’t actually be certain which came first for this song – the music or the lyrics – but I do remember the entire thing coming together in a matter of minutes. I had been playing a lot of Ocarina of Time on the 3DS and also experimenting with some very basic, rocky chord progressions. The two suddenly clicked together and became this.
