Gonna tell the tale of a dog named Zillionaire
Who stands on the back of a whale
Howling out in the middle of the ocean
Waves of dog emotion howl on 'til you find your sailor

Howl on 'til he carries you home
Hear him calling for his master
A sailor lost at sea who sank inside
A splash and disappeared beneath

Zillionaire was left drowning in his sorrows
Riding on a whale, drifting in tomorrow
Howl out for your sailor, howl for yourself
Howl out for someone to carry you home

Race car driver skinny head lookin' out the window
Race car driver skinny legs pressed against the pedal
Faster than a second thought speeding 'round the bend
Never gonna be caught dead 'less they're at the end

Race car driver crazy fool, don't worry about nothin'
Ball of fire burning heat, slammed against the wall
Never calculated this thing happening at all
Twelve excited people saw the ambulance arrive

Everybody knew that he was more dead than alive
Race car driver crazy fool, he don't worry 'bout nothin'
Race car driver crazy fool, he don't worry 'bout nothin'
Kept crashin' ooh, crashing ooh, crashing ooh like waves

Way out where the water is blue there's no land to be seen
The sky and the ocean fuse together like events inside a dream
When the sun sinks in the water stars look down and blink at the
Sailors standing on deck who smoke cigarettes and think

And sometimes when the waves are mellow
All crashed out you can hear that lonely dog howling out
Howl out for you master, howl all night long
And maybe he'll hear you and carry you home
