[Verse]

Dadd4      C              G/B       G
The sea is foamin' like a bottle of beer.
Dadd4       C            G/B          G
The wave is comin' but I ain't got no fear.
Dadd4      C                 G/B     G
I'm waxin' down so that I'll go real fast.
Dadd4      C                 G/B      G
I'm waxin' down because it's really a blast.

    I'm goin' surfin cause I don't like your face.

D/A         C/G           G5
I'm bailin' out because I hate the race
D/A           C/G           G5
of Ratts that run Round and Round in the maze.
D/A       C/G     G5
I'm goin' surfin', I'm goin' surfin'!

    You         take  your    car      to work,

C            G5
I'll take my board,
C               G5
And when you're out of fuel
C         G5
I'm still afloat.

[Verse]

D/A        C/G              G5
My buddies and their honeys all come along.
D/A         C/G         G5
They seem invincible as they surf along.
D/A        C/G            G5
The sea is rollin' like a thousand pound keg.
D/A         C/G     G5
We're goin' surfin'. We're goin' surfin'.


[Chorus]

C            G5
You take you car to work,
C            G5
