Flip Flops

Album: Southern Gravity (2015)
  • I ran into a wall of liquor tonight
    I really need a cab and there ain't one in sight
    I'm wandering and stumbling and falling all over myself
    I wish this old sidewalk would just stand still
    Long enough to get me back to my hotel
    I'm starting to think that maybe I could use some help

    Just trying to stay on top of my flip flops
    At least until this old world stops spinning, spinning
    People in the bars all laugh when I pass
    They're laying down bets that I'll bust my ass
    It looks like a mile but I only gotta make it one more block
    Just trying to stay on top of my flip flops

    Just did a little Fred Astaire around the last street sign
    I think I might have kissed a palm tree and asked it to be mine
    Here I come ready or not
    Even Jagger wishes he had the moves that I got
    Once I get going yeah it feels like I just can't stop

    Just trying to stay on top of my flip flops
    At least until this old world stops spinning, spinning
    People in the bars all laugh when I pass
    They're laying down bets that I'll bust my ass
    It looks like a mile but I only gotta make it one more block
    Just trying to stay on top of my flip flops

    Spinning, spinning
    People in the bars all laugh when I pass
    They're laying down bets that I'll bust my ass
    It looks like a mile but I only gotta make it one more block
    It's a balancing act
    Just trying to stay on top of my flip flops
