“Roll With The Flow (live)” Lyrics

She was a lackluster lover
Who thought of another
When I offered her my hand
To help her in out of the rain

She became quite possessive
When I gave her the message
I said, “I’ve got to leave
On the outbound ten o’clock train”

She said, “I thought you were stable
And that I might be able
To talk you into stickin’ around
A couple of years”

I said, “I roll with the flow
Wherever it goes
And it’s rollin’ out of here”

There was this didactic minister
Who told me of sinister things
Which would happen if I were
To do something wrong

He spoke at length about brimstone
And lines that were based on belief
That the bad and the good
Were equally strong

Why I think I undid him
When I started to kid him
’Cause he said, “If you’ll give me some time
I’ll make it quite clear”

I said, “I roll with the flow, pal
Wherever it goes
And it’s rollin’ me out of here”

[break]

She was a lackluster lover
Who thought of another
When I offered her my hand
To help her in out of the rain

Then she became quite possessive
When I, I gave her the message
I said, “I’ve got to leave
On the outbound ten o’clock train”

She said, “I thought you were stable
And that I might be able
To talk you into stickin’ around
A couple of years”

I said, “I roll with the flow
Wherever it goes
And it’s rollin’ me out of here”

Whoa, yes, I roll with the flow
Wherever it goes
And it’s rollin’ me out of here
