Lyrics
Everybody's talkin' at me.
I don't hear a word they're sayin',
Only the echoes of my mind.
People stoppin', starin'.
I can't see their faces,
Only the shadows of their eyes.

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin',
Through the pourin' rain.
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes.
Bankin' off of the northeast winds,
Sailin' on summer breeze.
An' skippin' over the ocean like a stone.

Wah-wa-wa-wa-wah,
Wah-wa-wa-wah,
Wah-wa-wah,
Wahhhhhhh.

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin',
Through the pourin' rain.
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes.
Bankin' off of the northeast winds,
Sailin' on summer breeze.
An' skippin' over the ocean like a stone.

Everybody's talkin' at me.
Can't hear a word they're sayin',
Only the echoes of my mind.

I won't let you leave my love behind.
No, I won't let you leave...
