(Kim Carnes/Dave Ellingson)

I could retire on a Caterpillar tire
Somewhere on a river in the great US
The world slidin' by
Every day is July
Just tubin' down the river with my mind at rest

Now man wasn't made to stay locked up in a cage
And workin' all day ain't that much fun to do
It's gonna come to pass
I'll leave the steel and the glass
Floating down the river down the tube with you

Reuben Reuben let's go tubin'
Won't you take me far away
We could live on love forever
And you know that life should be that way

Now maybe tomorrow find some time I can borrow
A dream just needs a window you can climb on through
Don't wanna wake up some day to find that I passed away
Before I floated on a river down the tube with you

Floatin' down the river got my mind at rest
Down a lazy river now I'm living' my best
Sunshine on a river down the tube with you
