Music Friday Prompt #17: “Float” by Modest Mouse


How was your week? For me, Thanksgiving break promises a slower routine–at least until the family arrives! Do you have any interesting rituals or food that is prepared during the holiday season?

We tend to take the traditional route complete with canned cranberry sauce (even though it’s so easy to make fresh cranberries, but I digress). For those who don’t celebrate the holiday, what do yo do on Turkey Day?

Today’s song is brought to you by the letter M for Modest Mouse 🙂 Enjoy!


“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 OKAnd 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, 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 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

(alright already)
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 alright
Don’t you worry we’ll all float on alright
All float on
