So you got a little heartbreak
Feeling like a dumb chump
Laying in left field
Can't believe you got dumped
Everything gone wrong
But you're listening to the right song

Grab yourself a cheap seat
Floating or flying
Anything southbound
Heading to the islands
Grab a little white sand
Maybe get your blues tanned

Riptides rippin'
The sunset's dippin'
You smile that smile
Keep on sippin'

Time flies
Sitting in the sun
When you're feeling numb
Time flies
When you're having rum
When you're having rum

Yeah, you find a little beach bar
Down on the water
Sail away the Captain
Feeling Jolly Roger
Talking to a cutie
Heading for the booty

Riptides rippin'
The sunset's dippin'
You smile that smile
You'll be saying

Time flies
Sitting in the sun
Yeah, when you're getting some
Time flies
When you're having rum
When you're having rum

Yeah

Riptides rippin'
The sunset's dippin'
You smile that smile
You'll be saying

Time flies
Yeah, when your in the sun
Yeah, when you're feeling numb
Time flies

Time flies
Sitting in the sun
Yeah, when you're getting some

Time flies
When you're having rum
When you're having rum
When you're getting some
When you're feeling numb
