Float On - Inspiration Thursday

I think this song is a sort of contemporary take on the song "Don't worry be happy."  It is originally by the group Modest Mouse, but I quite like this bluegrass take so I thought I'd share that recording.

I don't know about you, but every now and then it seems like everything is going wrong.  Like bad decisions are made.  Like accidents keep happening.  Like people are inconsiderate, self-centered jerks.  Like there are too many "bad days" to be had.

But, as I've said before, I know about blessings in disguise because I've been given many already in my life.  I know there are people who let you screw up, cause accidents in carelessness, say the wrong thing, (be human) and then just forgive, understand, and get on with it as if everything is okay.  Blessings upon those people. I hope to be like them. 

And I honestly believe that everything works out in the end.  If it doesn't work out it is not the end.  That this to shall pass.  That we will all "float on okay" in this river of life.

So, "don't worry.  Even if things end up a bit too heavy we'll all float on alright."


"Float On"


I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off sometimes life's ok
I ran my mouth off a bit too much oh what did I say
Well you just laughed it off it was all ok

And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on any way well

Well, a fake Jamaican took every last dime with that scam
It was worth it just to learn from sleight-of-hand
Bad news comes don't you worry even when it lands
Good news will work its way to all them plans
We both got fired on the exactly the same day
Well we'll float on good news is on the way

And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on ok
And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Now don't you worry we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry we'll all float on

And we'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
We'll all float on alright
Already we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Ok don't worry we'll all float on
Even if things get heavy we'll all float on
Alright already we'll all float on
Don't you worry we'll all float on
All float on
