Mary-kate & Ashley Olsen – I'd Rather Be Surfing lyrics

When I see the sun is shining,
I can tell you this is going to be my day.
I grab all that I need, out the door.
Hey, I'm on my way.
You can go and swim, I don't care.
You can act like a fish if you dare.
Cause I've got a different dream.
I've got a different wish.

I'd rather be surfing, just my board and me.
Hanging ten in the waves is where I want to be.
There's nothing like the feel of an ocean breeze,
And a title wave that will rattle your knees.
I live for the thrill of a perfect run.
I'd rather be surfing. Look out, here I come.
I'll just float awhile as I'm waiting for the roller to come.
I let the little ones pass.
You know I'm waiting for that special one that will carry me away.
Don't you see. Just the waves, my board and me.
It's about as close to heaven as a surfer can be.


When I see the sun shining, I can tell this will be my day.
I grab all that I need.
Out the door, hey, I'm on my way.

I rather be surfing. Look out, here I come.
