Catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world
Everybody tries it once
You paddle out turn around and raise
You gotta catch a wave and you're sittin' on top of the world
Not just a fad cause it's been going on so long
They said it wouldn't last too long
And watch 'em they'll hit the road and all be surfin' soon

So take a lesson from a top-notch surfer boy
But don't treat it like a toy
And baby go catch some rays on the sunny surf

Catch a wave and you'll be sittin' on top of the world
