David Allan Coe – Love Is Just A Porpoise (Playing In The Tropical Sun) lyrics

Everybody knows that
I've had my share of fair weather lovers
They always leave just ahead of the rain
Searching for sunshine and looking for pleasure

Two steps ahead of the last hurricane
If this is a chance then I'm gonna take it
Heaven knows I've taking chances before
It's hard to live with your eyes on the sparrow

Unless you first take your feet off the shore
There's not a cloud up in the sky
Give me one good reason why
We should set our sails for somewhere

Other that the sunny side of nowhere
Freedom's in the eagles wings, baby
Listen to those seagulls sing, maybe
Love is just a porpoise

Playing in the tropical sun
Let me tell you girl
That ocean get big when your
Halfway across it

And this ship of love's seen a lot of bad days
Sometimes it's harder to row with the current
Most of my life I've just rocked on the waves
If this is a game then I'm gonna play it

I need your love like those sails need wind
Just climb aboard, girl, and pull up the anchor
Now is the time for our love to begin
Woo, there's not a cloud up in the sky

Not a cloud up in the sky
Not a cloud up in the sky
Give me one good reason why
It's a fairy tale morning
