lyrics

Surfing underneath a west coast sun
Water washing over everyone
Keeping out the ultra-violet rays
'Neath the shelter of a late breaking tidal wave

Ain't no better time to be alive
Every year is 1965
California girls are all I hear
Singing on the radio

I get around
My seaside town

I know everybody here by name
Everything will always be the same
Things that I don't want to hear about
People have been whispering

All over town
All over town
All over town
All over town

About how ...

The circus is coming to town
It's gonna be a freak show
They're bringing the elephants and clowns
They're keeping the price low

The circus is coming to town
It's gonna be a freak show
With lions and tigers and bears
Everything must go

The circus is coming to town
It's gonna be a freak show
They're bringing the elephants and clowns
They're keeping the price low

The circus is coming to town
Its gonna be a freak show!
With lions and tigers and bears
Everything must go!
Must go!

I'm caught in the undertow
With the waves crashing down
It's not that I want to go
It's pulling me out
