The Bug Lyrics

Well it's a strange old game, you learn it slow
One step forward and it's back to go
You're standing on the throttle - You're standing on the brakes
In the groove 'til you make a mistake

Sometimes you're the windshield - Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville slugger baby - Sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're going to lose it all

You gotta know happy, you gotta know glad
Because you're gonna know lonely - And you're gonna know bad
When you're rippin' and a ridin' and you're coming on strong
You start a-slippin' and a-slidin' and it all goes wrong because

Sometimes you're the windshield - Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville slugger baby - Sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're going to lose it all

You go One day you got the glory - Then you got none
One day you're a diamond - And then you're a stone
Everything can change - In the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll - Before we say goodbye

Sometimes you're the windshield - Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville slugger baby - Sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're going to lose it all

Sometimes you're the windshield - Sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville slugger baby - Sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby - Sometimes you're going to lose it all
