I'm a drifter floatin' on the sea
Goin' where the currents take me
And I don't think I'll ever come to rest
'Cause I'm a drifter floatin' on the ocean
I've kinda got to where I like the motion
Things are gonna work out for the best

I know you want me to stay
And honey I'd sure like to see it your way
'Cause you're the best I've ever had of late
But somethin' stronger than love somehow
Has got me restless and I gotta go now
But I'll be back this way if you care to wait

I'm a drifter floatin' on the sea
Goin' where the currents take me
And I don't think I'll ever come to rest
'Cause I'm a drifter floatin' on the ocean
I've kinda got to where I like the motion
Hopin' things are gonna work out for
The best
I keep hopin' to find
A settledown place and a peaceful mind
Wonderin' if it's just around the bend
'Cause with all the things I wanna do
And see
You gotta be a millionaire of broke like me
Walkin' down this road that's got no end.
I'm a drifter floatin' on the sea
Goin' where the currents take me
And I don't think I'll ever come to rest
'Cause I'm a drifter floatin' on the ocean
I've kinda got to where I like the motion
Hopin' things are gonna work out for
The best
