Interpretations:Down To The Bottom Of The Sea
The singer is repeating the phrase "down down down" all the time, As if he tries to encourage himself. He's planning to kill himself and his baby, I think. He is a sailor-man, and going down to the bottom of the sea is for a sailor-man the same as death... down-down-down, he is not really sure if he can pull through with the plan though. -Electricrain 15:27, June 6, 2008
I wonder if there's a connection with the B-52's Rock Lobster: http://youtu.be/aepSPpU4S2o During the bridge, Fred (Schneider) sings "Down, Down..." in a somewhat similar way. ChaosS (talk) 19:34, 12 September 2013 (EDT)
It's not about suicide
It's about two people going to the bottom of the ocean, two lovers, the most private of places. the bottom of the ocean.
