Once in a Lifetime (Same as It Ever Was)

You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack

And you may find yourself in another part of the world

And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile

You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife

You may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, after the money's gone

Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

 

And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

And you may ask yourself, "Where is that large automobile?"

And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful house"

And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful wife"

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, after the money's gone

Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

 

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

 

Water dissolving and water removing

There is water at the bottom of the ocean

Under the water, carry the water

Remove the water from the bottom of the ocean

Water dissolving and water removing

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, into the silent water

Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Leting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, after the money's gone

Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

 

You may ask yourself, "What is that beautiful house?"

You may ask yourself, "Where does that highway go to?"

You may ask yourself, "Am I right, am I wrong?"

You may say to yourself, "My God! What have I done?"

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, into the silent water

Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground

 

Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by, water flowing underground

Into the blue again, after the money's gone

Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground

 

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, look where my hand was

 

Time isn't holding up, time isn't after us

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was

Same as it ever was, hey let's all twist our thumbs

Here comes the twister

 

Letting the days go by

Letting the days go by

Once in a lifetime

Let the water hold me down

Letting the days go by
