I've seen fire and I've seen rain.


I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end.

Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock and roll


If you're out on a date and you bring it home late, it's a sin.

Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy
