tripping billies lyrics – dave matthews band

we were above
you were standing underneath us
we were not yet lovers
dragons were smoked
bumblebees were stinging us
i was soon to be crazy

eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die
eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die
’cause we’re tripping billies

we’re wearing nothing
nothing but our shadows
shadows falling down on the beach sand
remembering once,
out on the beaches we wore
pineapple gr*ss bracelets

so why would you care
to get out of this place
you and me and all our friends
such a happy human race

’cause we’re tripping billies

we are all sitting
legs crossed round a fire
my yellow flame she dances
tequila drinking, oh, our
minds will wander
to wondrous places

so why would you care
to get out of this place
you and me and all our friends
such a happy human race

eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die
eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die

check ’em out, boyd, yeah!

eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die
eat, drink, and be merry
for tomorrow we die
