Let's take a trip around the world today,
In the back seat rolling down Shady Lane
Let's take a trip around the world today

The money, the money is getting in the way
Anyway you look at it it's looking at your face
Standing in line on a windy day
You're pushing it along
It's pushing you away
I won't regret anything I say
Why do people care what I think anyway
We can forget about the trouble and the pain
And leave it in the water, let it water down the drain

Let's take a trip around the world today,
In the back seat rolling down Shady Lane
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way
I don't mind if you don't mind
But we can see what the hell we will find
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way

You love it, I love it, I love it when you're free
Anyway you look at it it's how it's meant to be
Nine to five is becoming a disease
Not even a second left to bandage up your knee
Make the rules to your own game
Sip your champagne and tell 'em where to get some
At the end of the day enjoy the taste
We're on a big balloon floating in space


Let's take a trip around the world today,
In the back seat rolling down Shady Lane
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way
I don't mind if you don't mind
But we can see what the hell we will find
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way

Listen, listen; it could be an addiction
Missing every moment like a physical condition
It brings you down, and isn't it profound?
Stop and take a second look around this town
Things are changing all the time
Keep it in mind when you're feeling kicked down
The doubt, the trouble and the drought
You take it in before it takes you out


Let's take a trip around the world today,
In the back seat rolling down Shady Lane
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way
I don't mind if you don't mind
But we can see what the hell we will find
Let's take a trip around the world today
I like it, I like it that way

    General CommentPersonally, this song to me means getting away from all of the stress and drama in life and being free ("I love it when you're free"). This means sometimes going through "Shady Lane" to get to your destinations. Forgetting regrets and just embracing the adventure...

    That's what I think anyway.

    General CommentI think this song is about how society is changing every moment, stress and modern day life get's people down .. but you should try and be happy, spontaneous and accept that is how things work, and not too let it get you down.
