45 ride is the way to style

1st Verse:

Some people can’t find no piece of peace
They always searchin but they never are pleased
They’re lookin for smiles in a bottle of pills
But we all got a crutch, yes, and that’s for real

But if ya live your life just like a mouse
You’re stealin that cheese and you hide in the house
Well you might miss yes the very best bliss
It’s as simple as a hug and a kiss

2nd Verse:

Every day there’s somethin new on the ground
That’s blockin our ears and it’s blockin the sound
Of what is good and what is real
Ya gotta look back just to know your wheels
Cause all these gadgets will make ya mad
You’re happy one day but then the next you’re red
Tomorrow will surely bring somethin fast to fly
That’s why 45 Ride is my way to style

3rd Verse:

Don’t spend your days just countin down the hours
Don’t spend your time countin wrinkles in the frowns
Don’t spend your life countin changes in the crowd
Cause it’s only your life for a little while

Well you might say: man, well what ya mean? that 45 Ride is the way to be
But if ya put a record upon the needle, well then you’d see how to drive this wheel
Cause it don’t take much to make a smile
Ya gotta read your past just to write that next mile
Tomorrow will surely bring somethin fast to fly
That’s why 45 Ride is the way to style
