Catch a wave and youre sitting on top of the world

Don't be afraid to try the greatest sport around(catch a wave, catch a wave)
Everybody tries it once
Those who don't just have to put it down(ooh waah x3)
You paddle out turn around and raise(ooh wah ooh)
And baby that's all there is to the coastline craze
You gotta catch a wave and youre sittin on top of the world(oh wah oh x3)

Not just a fad cause its been going on so long (catch a wave x2)
All the surfers going strong
They said it wouldnt last too long (ohh wah ohh x3)
They'll eat their words with a fork and spoon (ohh wah ooh x3)
And watch em theyll hit the road and all be surfin soon (ohh wah ooh)
And when they catch a wave theyll be sittin on top of the world (ohh wah ooh x3)

(Music And Clapping)

Catch a wave and your sittin on top of the world(ohh wah ooh x3)

So take a lesson from a top-notch surfer boy(catch a wave x2)
Every saturday boy
But don't treat it like a toy(ohh wah ooh x3)
Just get away from the shady turf(ohh wah ooh)
And baby go catch some rays on the sunny surf
And when you catch a wave youll be sittin on top of the world (on top of the world)

Catch a wave and youll be sittin on top of the world(on top of the world)
Catch a wave and youll be sittin on top of the world(on top of the world
Catch a wave and youll be sittin on top of the world
