TO SURF IS TO LIVE - words & music by Nate Butler
I've got a lot of business to do
No life-guard gonna distract me or you
I've got a good leg, but it won't show
'Til I hit the board -- and then they will know
It's not just show
When you catch a wave, you have to go ... and you will go!

Now, it's a very big ocean, and it's full of waves
And there's a board gone under for each soul you save
I can't see you, but I know you're alive
Turn my head, make my bed, seeing red; gonna get by
Sorry if I sound self-absorbed, but it's the only way I know to reach the shore
And I will have faith in this board
Now I must ride; hope to see you at low-tide

No no no, whoah-oh
You won't find no automobiles to distract your mind
If they're too unkind, your virtue is gonna shine, gonna shine
To surf is to live, therefore I am
To am is to live, therefore I surf; I surf on my own turf

No no no, whoah-oh
You won't find no automobiles to distract your mind
If they're too unkind, your virtue is gonna shine, gonna shine
To surf is to live, therefore I am
To am is to live, therefore I surf
Therefore I serve, therefore I serve ...
