"Red Rubber Ball" as written by Paul Simon and Bruce Woodley....
I should have known you'd bid me farewell
There's a lesson to be learned from this and I learned it very well
Now I know you're not the only starfish in the sea
If I never hear your name again, it's all the same to me

[Chorus]
And I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin' sun is shinin' like a red rubber ball

You never care for secrets I confide
For you I'm just an ornament, somethin' for your pride
Always runnin', never carin', that's the life you live
Stolen minutes of your time were all ya had to give

[Chorus]

The story's in the past with nothin' to recall
I've got my life to live and I don't need you at all
The roller-coaster ride we took is nearly at an end
I bought my ticket with my tears, that's all I'm gonna spend

[Chorus]

Oh, oh, oh
I think it's gonna be all right
Yeah, the worst is over now
The mornin' sun is shinin' like a red rubber ball

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented! This song was written by one of the greatest song writers of our time...Paul Simon. I love this song! I think it's hilarious! Not because of the lyrics, but it's such a sad/angry subject of a relationship breakup, but it's set to such happy peppy music. It's so catchy that you get it stuck in your head and sing it all day!
