"Staying afloat beside a boat
In the Gulf of Mexico
With no work to think about today
Many times when I’m feeling down
I just turn this head around
And the good times are on their way

It’s not right, it’s never right
But we’re all happy, deep down inside
When I’m singing a song with my friends
Because I can, then I know I’m happy tonight

Late at night with my friends
Hide and seek will never end
No one will be leaving here ‘till two
No booze or drugs are needed
Especially when the music’s bleeding
A melody the whole night through

Walking with a girl who’s pretty
Down the sidewalk of the city
It makes me feel like a lucky guy
She’ll be there when times are wrong
And help me sing this special song
On a big beach under a bright blue sky"
