Dire Straits – The Bug lyrics

Well it's a strange old game - you learn it slow
One step forward and it's back to go
You're standing on the throttle
You're standing on the breaks
In the groove 'til you make a mistake

Sometime you're the windshield
Sometime you're the bug
Sometime it all comes together baby
Sometime you're a fool in love
Sometime you're the louisville slugger
Sometime you're the ball
Sometime it all come together baby
Sometime you're gonna lose it all, (groovin')

You gotta know happy - you gotta know glad
Because you're gonna know lonely
And you're gonna know bad
When you're rippin' and a ridin'
And you're coming on strong
You start a slippin' and slidin'
And it all goes wrong because

Sometime you're the windshield
Sometime you're the bug
Sometime it all comes together baby
Sometime you're a fool in love
Sometime you're the louisville slugger
Sometime you're the ball
Sometime it all come together baby
Sometime you're gonna lose it all, (groovin')

One day you got the glory
Then you got none
One day you're a diamond
And then you're a stone
Everything can change
In the blink of an eye
So let the good time roll
Before we say goodbye, because

Sometime you're the windshield
Sometime you're the bug
Sometime it all comes together baby
Sometime you're a fool in love
Sometime you're the louisville slugger
Sometime you're the ball
Sometime it all come together baby
Sometime you're gonna lose it all, (groovin')

(do the bug)
