Wake up
It's a beautiful morning
Honey, while the sun is still shining
Wake up
Would you like to go with me?
Honey, take a run down to the beach

Oh, mama
I wanna go surfing
Oh, mama
I don't care about nothing

Wake up
There's a new kid in the town
Honey, he's moving into the big house
Remember
When I was so very hopeless
Darling, he's gonna make it all better

Oh, mama
I wanna go surfing
Oh, mama
I don't care about nothing

Down, down baby
Down by the rollercoaster
Sweet, sweet baby
I'll never let you go (X 4)

Oh, mama
I wanna go surfing
Oh, mama
I don't care about nothing

Oh, mama
I wanna go surfing
Oh, mama
I don't care about nothing

    It's most defiantly about Obama.

    General CommentThis might be a long shot but I think this song means that the they want to go surfing - but then I'm so very hopeless so who knows.

    General Commentwhy does it have to be cynical? i heard the lead singer talking about the meaning of this song in a radio interview, they said it represented HOPE for obama and an end to the bush era...so not ironic at all?

    General CommentThe new kid in town moving into the big house is Obama!
    Then the songs a cynical look at the liberals belief that anything would change.

    General CommentI don't mean to sound like a complete idiot, but I think the guy above me is right. I know it sounds ridiculous and stupid, but I think the chorus IS "OBAMA / I wanna go surfing." Otherwise what the hell does the second verse mean? It doesn't make any sense. He's moving into the house and gonna make it all better? They're ironically saying that Obama isn't going to solve everything/the fundamental problems with humanity. Pretty deep message for such a catchy pop song.
