Some People Ride the Wave Submit Correct Lyrics

Some people ride the wave of generosity
Some people ride the wave of mediocrity
Me, I ride the wave of never gonna drown
Oh, just fooling around

Now I gots the balloons and you, you gots the mud
And me I gots the snail and you gots the stuff
Well, you got so much more than I figure was in store
Oh, I ain't foolin' no more

Now some people ride the cat when asleep or when awake
Some people ride a cat for riding a cat's sake
Me, I ride this cat 'cause it's claws have got my eyes
I'll get 'em back in a few more tries, oh I'll get 'em back in a few more tries

Some people ride the books that tenderize their names
Some people ride the books that bastardize our claims
Me, I ride the book that's sifting in the sand
Oh, some day I'll understand, oh, some day I'll understand

Some people ride the songs that stay inside our souls
Some people ride the songs that really ain't songs at all
Me, I ride the song that ends right when it starts
They'll split before they part, oh, they'll split before they part
