funny how the time goes by
gently down the stream
appreciating the company we’re with
if you know what i mean

and simply put, i don’t get it
why sometimes it’s far away
but i sure am glad you stayed
and didn’t drift away

they say we don’t choose
but i think we do
and in this dream
you’ve chosen me; i’ve chosen you

some of us are angry
some of us depressed
some of us lie naked
some finely dressed

the stream keeps rollin’ merrily
and time keeps slipping by
and we’ll stand up and change our place
while the shore goes drifting by
