When you grab a hold of me
Tell me that I’ll never be set free
But I’m a parasite, creep and crawl
I step into the night.
Two pints of booze
Tell me are you a badfish too? are you a badfish too?
Ain’t got no money to spend
And I hope this night will never end
Lord knows I’m weak
Won’t somebody get me off of this reef

And baby your a big blue whale
I'll grab the reef when all duck diving fails
And I can swim but I wish I had never learned
Cuz the water’s too polluted with germs
Dive deep when it’s ten feet overhead
And grab the reef, that's underneath my bed
It’s underneath my bed
Ain’t got no quarrels with God, ain’t got no time to grow old
Lord knows that I’m weak
Won’t somebody get me off of this reef

And there’s a steel train comin’ in, I would take it if I could
And I would not lie to you, because Sunday mornin’ soon will come

Things will be, easier to say
Upon the microphone like I'm a Boss DJ
I will walk up upon the stage, like it was dry land
A Boss DJ ain’t nothin’ but a man
No trouble, no fuss, I know why..

It’s so nice, I wanna hear the same song twice,
It’s so nice I wanna hear the same song twice

Nowadays all the songs on the radio,
They all,
All drive me crazy

    General Commentlyrics are a little off I think...isn't it "but I won't walk up upon the sea like it was dry land"?

    I'm not sure if this is better than sublime's version...both are great. but I do like the Boss DJ part better than sublime's boss dj

    General CommentJacks version is really good, but sublimes is the greatest. If you know all the meaning and the torment behind Boss DJ, then you too would agree.
