She was a lackluster lover who thought of another
When I offered her my hand to help her in out of the rain
Then she became quite possessive when I gave her the message
That I had to leave on the outbound ten o'clock train

She said I thought you were stable
And that I might be able
To talk you into sticking around for a couple of years
I said I roll with the flow, wherever it goes and it's rolling out of here

There was this didactic minister who told me of sinister things
Which would happen if I were to do something wrong
He spoke at length about brimstone
And lives that were based on

Belief that the bad and the good were equally strong
That's why I think I undid him when I started to kid him
'Cause he said if you'll give me some time, I'll make it quite clear
I said I roll with the flow, wherever it goes and it's rolling out of here

Now those are two fine examples of the way that I handled
The pressure that tried to draw me away from the light
And in the final analysis it's foolish if you resist
The changes that come into your everyday life

There might be some trepidation but don't let hesitation
Deprive you of hope and try to replace it with fear
Just roll with the flow wherever it goes
Even if it rolls outta here

You just roll with the flow wherever it goes
Even if it rolls outta here
Just roll with the flow wherever it goes
Even if it rolls outta here
