La la la la la la, la la la la yeah owo yeah

Every junkie knows the fix won’t last
Strung out but the keeps on coppin’
Every politician with a shady past
Hopes a love child don’t come knockin’
Every alcoholic swears “This drink’s the last”
Every broker was a genius til the market crashed
Every gambler on a streak knows that he can’t win
But he keeps on betting til the sky caves in

We can’t breath under water
And we don’t know how to swim
But we keep on rocking the boat
Until we fall in

La la la la la la

Every stand-up comic has a serious night
Every streetwalker’s somebody’s daughter
Every soldier in the war’s got God on his side
And that’s why we can’t stop the slaughter
Every magazine cover has been retouched
Every generation swears “It won’t happen to us”
But it can & it will & we do & it does
You wanna know why? It’s because

We can’t breath under water
And we don’t know how to swim
But we keep on rocking the boat
Until we fall in
Until we fall in

Yeah yeah

We should quit while we’re ahead, instead
We wait to get knocked around
Cause you never need the lifeboat
Til the ship is going down
Well, look around

Every now and then life calls your bluff
You gotta walk the talk you’re talking
Everybody wishes they could just shut up
But we just keep going on and on and on and on and on…

We can’t breathe under water
And we don’t know how to swim
But we’re crossing all our fingers, stripping down and diving in

We can’t breathe under water
And we don’t know how to swim
But we keep on rocking the boat
Until we fall in
Until we fall in

La la la la la la, la la la la yeah

Careful what you’re wishing for, you just might get it
Live today ‘cause if you don’t you might live to regret it
That’s all I’m saying
