Lyrics:
Iíve been here from the very start I werenít so steady and I werenít so smart
But I kept on rollin.

I thought I would land on the beach one day and all I loved would go away,
But I kept on rollin.

At times I felt so alone out there like if I disappeared who would give a care,
And feeling so small isnít fun isnít fair when I look deeper I am everywhere

My name is Roland and I be rolliní
If you think youíre one small wave, youíre gonna change your song
Just roll like me someday youíll see that we were the whole wide ocean all along.

When its raining you can say hello to me you can ride me down the river to the deep
blue sea cuz I keep on rollin.

Nobody else can take your moment in the sun it seems like weíre so many but weíre
only one so why why donít we keep on rollin?

At times it can feel so alone out there like if youíd disappear, who would give a care?
Feeling so small isnít fun isntí fair but when we get deeper we are everywhere

My name is Roland and I be rolliní
If you think youíre one small wave, youíre gonna change your song
Just roll like me someday youíll see that we were the whole wide ocean all along.

Letís sing it again when the chorus begins all you fishes clap your fins!

My name is Roland and I be rolliní
If you think youíre one small wave, youíre gonna change your song
Just roll like me someday youíll see that we were the whole wide ocean all along.

(spoken) Iím parched. I think I need a glass of me!

Lyrics:
I was born in a big black crack at the bottom of the sea
No one ever loved me. I grew up unhappily.
Now I just canít stop myself. I donít care what I do.
Iím swallowing my feelings and I may just have to swallow you.

Iím so hungry. Iím always empty inside.
Gnarly hungry. Thereís no place you can hide.
Iím so hungry.
It would do no good to shout.
Cuzí Iím gonna chew you up. Then Iím gonna spit you out.

So if you see me coming you better get to higher ground.
Thereís gonna be deep trouble whenever Gnarly comes around.

Donít say I didnít warn yaí I told you I was whack.
I wonít pretend to need a friend, but I could always use a snack.

Iím so hungry. Iím always empty inside.
Gnarly hungry. Thereís no place you can hide.
Iím so hungry.
It would do no good to shout.
Cuzí Iím gonna chew you up. Then Iím gonna spit you out.

Iím so hungry. Thereís a hole down in my soul.
Iím so hungry. When I hit the shoal, Iím gonna take a toll.

When Iím hungry it would do no good to pout.
Cuzí Iím gonna suck you up, then Iím gonna spit you out.
Iím a force that you canít resist. And ME is what Iím all about.

When my brain is illiní and I get that empty feeliní I gotta eat.

(belch)

Sweet.

Lyrics:
When the moon is high
And the sky is alive
No I don't know
What could be better than you and I
And the peace that I find in your smile
Oh your smile

Now I, I'm starting to see
Everything's part of you and me

I'm along for the ride
I can change with the tide
Love is real and we'll be fine
I will always be kind
I won't leave you behind
I'm all yours and you're all mine

In the shimmering sun
There'll be no need to run from your sorrows
Baby I'm here just to be around
When your ship runs aground
You're alright, I'll be your light

No I, I'm starting to see
Everything's part of your and me

I'm along for the ride
I can change with the tide
Love is real and we'll be fine
I will always be kind
I won't leave you behind
I'm all yours and you're all mine

All mine, all mine
I'm all yours and you're all mine
All mine, all mine
I'm all yours and you're all mine.

Lyrics:
Weíve got everything and nothing to lose,
No sense feeling down singing the blues.
We got it all. We got it all.

Kids like you and waves like me,
Weíre deeper than the deep blue sea
We own Earth, Mars and Mercury
We have everything.
