Lyric "Paddle Out"

I never thought that when I grew up I would be in a band
And travel all the best spots in the land
And I'm not here to brag or boast
I'm here to tell you about the spots that I love the most

Natural Bridges on a clean west swell
Breaks over the reef like a bat out of hell
Stockton Avenue gets hollow and mean
And on a big day it works like a machine
Outside Stockton gets hot like a gloves
Swift Street, John Street, into Mitchell's cove
Big Steamer Lane makes you wish you were a trout
When it's smackin' so hard only two dudes paddle out

A huge summertime south swell hits when I'm in my hometown
In a surf side bowl
Is where I can be found or up and down the coast
Checkin' out the spots that I love the most




Sublime was an American ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band's line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass) and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell's dalmatian, was the mascot of the band. Michael 'Miguel' Happoldt and Marshall Goodman "Ras MG" contributed to and co-wrote several Sublime songs. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996. In 1997, posthumous songs such as "What I Got", "Santeria", "Wrong Way", "Doin' Time", and "April 29, 1992 (Miami)" were released to U.S. radio
