Swimmin' into the deep blue sea
I'd have all the good lookin' women
Swimmin' after me

Your baby back

Can never go my way
I'm gonna ride the first thing smokin'
Down the road I go
Down the road I go

Swimmin' into the deep blue sea
I'd have all you good lookin' women
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me
Swimmin' after me

Oh, rollin' on, oh, rollin' on
Oh, rollin' on, oh, rollin' on
