Seagulls high in a clear blue sky
They're just floating on the breeze
Not even flapping their wings at all
Living a life of ease
And I'm sucking exhaust at a stoplight
While they're playing freeze tag in the air
Got my face up against the window
Man, I wish I could be up there

I wish I could do that
I wish I could do that
If I could do anything in the world
I wish I could do that

Tomcat lying on the hood of that car
He's just soaking up the sun
Looks like he's bored from too much contentment
Too tired from having fun
He ain't got no high blood pressure
He knows it'll be OK
He's letting his life take care of itself
I wish I could be that way

I wish I could do that
I wish I could do that
If I could do anything in the world
I wish I could do that

I'm hurryin' and worryin' just trying to catch that dime
Doing next to nothing and it's taking all my time
I can't stop for any roses, I can hardly even yield
For the seagulls and the tomcat and the lilies in the field

There's a horn honking through my daydream
I'm stopped at a bright green light
Convertible car cuts around on the left
And whips up the ramp to the right
I was thinking about how I don't have to fret
About where I'll get my food and clothes
I don't have to race like the rat in that car
But I sure would love one of those

I wish I could do that
I wish I could do that
If I could do anything in the world
I wish I could do that
