Red Rubber Ball Lyrics - Simon and Garfunkel

Review The Song (8)

I should have known you'd bid me farewell.
There's a lesson to be learned from this
and I've learned it very well.

Now I know you're not
the only starfish in the sea.
If I never hear your name again
it's all the same to me.

And I think it's gonna be all right.
Yeah, the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

You never cared for secrets I'd confide.
For you I'm just an ornament,
Something for your pride.

Always running, never caring,
That's the life you live.
Stolen minutes of your time
were all you had to give.

And I think it's gonna be all right.
Yeah, the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

The story's in the past with nothing to recall.
I've got my life to live and I
don't need you at all

The roller coaster ride we took is
nearly at an end.
I bought my ticket with my tears,
that's all I'm gonna spend.

And I think it's gonna be all right.
Yeah, the worst is over now,
The morning sun is shining like a Red Rubber Ball.

I had forgotten about this great song! S&G have been on my mind lately--50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, Bridge Over Troubled Water, etc. This am, I was down in the depths of the 90th floor. A friend gave me this ball made of rubber bands while passing. Said "This is for you." The song has been resonating in my head all day. Had to find the lyrics! Don't really care who wrote it. It is a great song. Thanks.

Red Rubber Ball | Reviewer: Marty F | 9/12/07

Paul Simon and Bruce Woodley wrote this not Neil Diamond. Simon and Garfunkel sang the best version of it as well.

Trans-sister's radio | Reviewer: Brent E. Engle | 8/30/07

I never knew until pulling up the lyric here, that
the song was about the end of a relationship. The case in point, as for my personal investigation. I
rarely understand lyrics 'cause my brain's focused
largely on the music. Once I hear the words wrong
I find it hard making them out for YEARS...
But, as to R.R.B: I remember playing with my toys & listening for this, a little boy on my sister's
white-vinyl cased transistor AM radio. Remaining
a favorite for 90% of my life. Simon says it's a
Diamond, and I don't care. Just FINDING antiques
like a REAL ball is the next nostalgic pursuit.

Wrong songwriter | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/06

This song was written by Neil Diamond not Simon and Garfunkel

Big Surprise | Reviewer: Artie | 6/25/06

I had no idea that S and G wrote and sang this one. One of my all-time favorites.

Red Rubber Ball | Reviewer: David P | 9/23/05

This true gem only came to light for me in the last 5 years. A true S&G accousticclassic. It also transforms well to the punk revivalist genre of Eggchair.
A real treat at the end of a dull film( Dodgeball).

UNDERRATED | Reviewer: Frankie D. | 9/15/05

A very underated S&G song. Most people don't even know they wrote it.The Cyrcle did a good job also.
