Every town and every port,
we hide out with pirates and folk of their sort,
bike on the streets and then sleep on the waves.
On the waves, on the waves!
Sleep on the waves.
(On the waves, on the waves!
Sleep on the waves.)

Many a farmer will ask unto me,
"How can you live with your nose full of pee?
The rows in the soil keep me afloat."
Afloat, afloat!
Soil or a boat?
(Afloat, afloat!
Soil or a boat?)

Many a seer steps in the way.
"Like it or not, you'll have to pay.
All of your treasure, pickle and dime!"
Oh no, a dime!
Some other time.
(Oh no, a dime!
Some other time.)

Friends in the cubicles long to be free.
The boxes we make are the boxes we see.
What is the world if not round as can be?
Earth is round, it is round!
Round as can be.
(Earth is round, it is round!
Round as can be.)

[theremin solo]

Look at the sky, I think you would agree.
the sun's never heard the word "money."
But the moon has alright, 'cause it knows what it's like
to push and pull the sea.
la la la la
(to push and pull the sea.
la la la) [to the end]

(Push! Pull! La la la la!)
