Lyrics

I walked down ocean road last night, I was hungry and tired

I browsed a party with a bottle in hand and no one in mind

It got crowded. It wasn’t quite my scene                 

The DJ was bad and the people were mean

I went outside to see the stars but didn’t get very far

 

'Cause the surfboard-maker’s daughter

Came in up from the water and told me:

 

If everyone’s got wings and I’ve got fins then I guess I’ll swim

Whenever I compare the way they are to the way I am

I see we’re different, woa-oh-oh-oh I see my fins

 

We walked down ocean road last night we were hungry and tired

We left the party- her holding my hand, we’d stolen some wine.

We made it to a milk-shake place, got some waffles and eggs

It was late in the evening we were quietly thinking to ourselves

 

When that jukebox in the corner

Began to play some music for her and she said:

 

If everyone’s got wings and I’ve got fins then I guess I’ll swim

Whenever I compare the way they are to the way I am

I see we’re different, woa-oh-oh-oh I see my fins

 

So we ran down to the beach. She took her shirt off and smiled at me

And as we crashed into the sea, she said, “Don’t be afraid to be unique,

It’s all you got, so don’t worry about what you are not.”

 

We dried off in my car at dawn, she fell asleep in my arms

The sun lit the windows, the radio whispered a Beach Boys song

 

If everyone’s got wings and you've got fins then you'd better swim

Whenever you compare the way you walk to the way they stand

I see you’re different, ohhhh-oh-oh-oh you see your fins 

You see your fins
