As sung by Johnny Gibbons.

This world is not so bad a world,
Though full of ups and downs;
Some get rich, some get poor,
Some smile while others frown.
But there's a way to get along.
And easily to glide;
You'll find it very easy
If you are drifting with the tide.

Drifting with the tide.
Easily we glide;
Down the stream of life alone,
Drifting with the tide.

There is many a man who tries to live
Upon the honest plan,
He loves his neighbor as himself,
He's an upright honest man.
Yet still he struggles hard along
In this cold world so wide;
He has not learned the easy way
Of drifting with the tide.-Chorus.

If a poor man steals a penny loaf
To feed his starving child,
He'll soon be up before the judge,
His sentence won't be mild.
But let defaulters steal your gold,
Their crimes they surely hide;
The reason is they learned the way
Of drifting with the tide.-Chorus.
