1) The Surfer

Surfing underneath a west coast sun
Water washing over everyone
Keeping out the ultra-violet rays
Neath the shelter of a late breaking tidal wave

Ain’t no better time to be alive
Every year is 1965
California girls are all I hear
Singing on the radio

I get around
My seaside town

I know everybody here by name
Everything will always be the same
Things that I don’t want to here about
People have been whispering

All over town
All overtown
All over town
All over town

About how…

The circus is coming to town
It’s gonna be a freak show
They’re bringing the elephants and clowns
They’re keeping the price low

The circus is coming to town
It’s gonna be a freak show
With lions and tigers and bears
Everything must go

The circus is coming to town
It’s gonna be a freak show
They’re bringing the elephants and clowns
They’re keeping the price low

The circus is coming to town
Its gonna be a freak show
With lions and tigers and bears
Everything must go
Must go!

I’m caught in the undertow
With the waves crashing down
It’s not that I want to go
It’s pulling me out
