Tell me how you ride the wave, my mate,
And show me how you ride the wave
Taking on the Gale that shall never abate
And the Pacific that shall never behave

Not the crests on a deathly embrace
Or the troughs tearing the oceans apart
None dares to upset your poise
O’ lonely Seagull, gliding on the froth

Tell me how you ride the wave, my mate,
And show me how you ride the wave

The leeward is never far away, just a drift
To the starboard, of the mighty liner
But, I know you will never ever do that
Watching you, my friend, across the Port quarter

The gale never abate and the Pacific never behave
And you can’t count on a liner for ever
My lonely Seagull, you are not so naive
To trust the treacherous leeward for ever

Tell me how you ride the wave, my mate,
And show me how you ride the wave

I envy you, my lonely feathered friend
As I run away from the heartbreak
Taking shelter here, in the leeward
Hoping that my gale will soon break

Teach me how to take on life, O’ Seagull
Gliding on the crest and sliding down the trough
Never banking on a path so level
Taking head on, a life so tough, a ride so rough

Tell me how you ride the wave, my mate,
And show me how you ride the wave

Ride the wave
