Lyrics

Don't Rock the Boat
copyright 2003 Richard Popovic

Don?t let it out of your sight
Don?t trust anyone who wears a tie
They don?t know what it?s like where we come from

Live and die by the punch card
Overtime is a gift from God
Go back home thankful when the day is done

This is as good as it gets
So straddle the fence and hedge all your bets
And I still cannot bluff to this day
It?s the middle-American way
Save your money for a rainy day
Work hard and don?t make waves
Don?t rock the boat

We mow our lawns and change our own oil
Make sure the kids grow up strong and unspoiled
Keep busy and you ain?t got time to be bored

?Cause if you stop and let the light through the seams
You may remember your childhood dreams
Dreams are one thing we cannot afford

This is as good as it gets
So straddle the fence and hedge all your bets
And I still cannot bluff to this day
It?s the middle-American way
Save your money for a rainy day
Work hard and don?t make waves
Don?t rock the boat
