Barometer Soup Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
Chorus
FOLLOW IN MY WAKE, YOU'VE NOT THAT MUCH AT STAKE
FOR I HAVE PLOWED THE SEAS, AND SMOOTHED THE TROUBLED WATERS
COME ALONG LET'S HAVE SOME FUN, THE HARD WORK HAS BEEN DONE
WE'LL BARREL ROLL INTO THE SUN, JUST FOR STARTERS

Verse
JUST FOR STARTERS, BAROMETER IS MY SOUP
I'M DESCENDED FROM A DECK HAND ON A SLOOP
I TRAVEL ON THE SONG LINES THAT ONLY DREAMERS SEE
NOT KNOWN FOR PREDICTABILITY

Chorus
COME AND FOLLOW IN OUR WAKE, YOU'VE NOT THAT MUCH AT STAKE
FOR WE HAVE PLOWED THE SEAS, AND SMOOTHED THE TROUBLED WATERS
COME ALONG LET'S HAVE SOME FUN, SEEMS OUR WORK IS DONE
WE'LL BARREL ROLL INTO THE SUN, JUST FOR STARTERS

Verse
SAIL THE MAIN COURSE, SAIL IT IN A SIMPLE STURDY CRAFT
KEEP HER WELL STOCKED WITH SHORT STORIES AND LONG LAUGHS
GO FAST ENOUGH TO GET THERE, BUT SLOW ENOUGH TO SEE
MODERATION SEEMS TO BE THE KEY

Bridge
CONSTANTLY SEARCHING
OH MY EYES HAVE SEEN SOME HORIZONS
AND I'VE CROSSED THE OCEANS
FOR MORE THAN JUST THRILLS
NO I'M NOT THE FIRST
WON'T BE THE LAST
YOU LUST FOR THE FUTURE
BUT TREASURE THE PAST

Chorus
FOLLOW IN MY WAKE, YOU'VE NOT THAT MUCH AT STAKE
FOR I HAVE PLOWED THE SEAS, AND SMOOTHED THE TROUBLED WATERS
COME ALONG LET'S HAVE SOME FUN, THE HARD WORK HAS BEEN DONE
WE'LL BARREL ROLL INTO THE SUN, JUST FOR STARTERS
WE'LL BARREL ROLL INTO THE SUN, JUST FOR STARTERS
WE'LL BARREL ROLL INTO THE SUN, JUST FOR STARTERS

Barefoot Children In The Rain Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
SCRATCH MY BACK WITH A LIGHTNING BOLT
THUNDER ROLLS LIKE A BASS DRUM NOTE
THE SOUND OF THE WEATHER IS HEAVEN'S RAG TIME BAND

WE ALL FELL DOWN FORM THE MILKY WAY
HANGING' ROUND HERE 'TILL JUDGMENT DAY
HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS WHO'S IN COMMAND

Chorus
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN
GOT NO NEED TO EXPLAIN
WE'D BE SWINGING ON A BALL AND CHAIN
IT'S ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD BY THOSE WHO PLAY THE GAME
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN

SHOW ME YOURS AND I'LL SHOW YOU MINE
TAKE ME BACK TO DAYS FULL WITH MONKEY SHINE'S
BOUNCING ON A BUBBLE FULL OF TROUBLE IN THE SUMMER SUN

KEEP YOUR RAFT FROM THE RIVERBOAT
FICTION OVER FACT ALWAYS HAS MY VOTE
AND WRINKLES ONLY GO WHERE THE SMILES HAVE BEEN

Chorus
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN
GOT NO NEED TO EXPLAIN
WE'D BE SWINGING ON A BALL AND CHAIN
IT'S ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD BY THOSE WHO PLAY THE GAME
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN

SCRATCH MY BACK WITH A LIGHTNING BOLT
THUNDER ROLLS LIKE A BASS DRUM NOTE
THE SOUND OF THE WEATHER IS HEAVEN'S RAG TIME BAND

THE SKY TURNS BLUE AND THE SUN APPEARS
BUT THE QUESTION'S STILL "WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?"
I DON'T THINK THE ANSWER'S CLOSE AT HAND

Chorus
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN
GOT NO NEED TO EXPLAIN
WE'D BE SWINGING ON A BALL AND CHAIN
IT'S ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD BY THOSE WHO PLAY THE GAME
BAREFOOT CHILDREN IN THE RAIN
IN THE RAIN
IN THE RAIN

Bank Of Bad Habits Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
THE RUMORS AND THE STORIES OF MY PAST I CAN'T DENY
I'M NO ST. IGNATIUS BUT AGAIN I'M NO BAR FLY
THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL

Verse 2
LAST NIGHT I SAID GOOD BYE TO A DEAR OLD FRIEND OF MINE
JUST A THROWBACK SHELL BEACH PARTY NOTHING REALLY ASININE
RUM AND COOKED ANIMALS AND BULLSHIT BY THE TON
THAT PARTY LASTED WAY TOO LONG AND I HAD TOO MUCH FUN

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IN A CORNER OF MY SOUL
THAT BANK OF BAD HABITS
IT'S WORTH IT'S WEIGHT IN GOLD

Bridge
TIME FOR YOU TO SPEND THAT DOUGH
YOUR THE ONLY ONE YOU OWE
SO PUT AWAY THOSE ALIBIS
YOU CAN'T FOOL THAT BANKER IN THE SKY

NOW LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
One
PRIDE-THOU SHALT NOT HAVE PRIDE IN THY NEIGHBOR
Two
COVETING-THOU SHALT NOT COVET THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Three
LUST-THOU SHALT NOT LUST AFTER HIS NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Four

ANGER-DO NOT BE ANGRY WITH YOUR NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Five
GLUTTONY-DO NOT EAT THY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE'S POPCORN
Six
ENVY-DO NOT ENVY YOUR NEIGHBOR'S WIFE
Seven
SLOTH-DO NOT BE A SLOB
AND THE Eighth DEADLY SIN IS
PIZZA

Verse
A PICTURE'S WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS JUST ASK A CAMERA MAN
AND IT'S NO SIN TO STOP AND LOOK I DO IT WHEN I CAN
BUT YOU HAVE TO PURGE THAT URGE TO MERGE
YOU HAVE TO KEEP YOUR HEAD
TROUBLE IS WHAT YOU WILL FIND INSIDE SOME STRANGER'S BED

Chorus
BANK OF BAD HABITS
THE PRICE OF VICE FORETOLD
ONE BY ONE THEY'LL DO YOU IN
THEY'RE BOUND TO TAKE THEIR TOLL

THE WRONG THING IS THE RIGHT THING
UNTIL YOU LOSE CONTROL
I GOT THIS BANK OF BAD HABITS
IT'S WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD
YEA WE'RE TALKIN
KRUGGERAND
DUBLOON
YOU KNOW I WAS WONDERING
DO YOU THINK THEY HAVE AN ATM
MACHINE FOR BAD HABITS?
I THINK I'LL APPLY FOR THAT CARD


Remittance Man Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
SINNER ON THE MAINLAND
HE'S A SINNER ON THE SEA
HE LOOKS FOR ABSOLUTION
NOT ACCOUNTABILITY

HOW MANY DESTINATIONS
OH GOD HE'S SEEN THEM ALL
HE COLLECTS HIS PRECIOUS PITTANCE
IN EVERY PORT OF CALL

Chorus
REMITTANCE MAN
BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY CLAN
BROKE TOO MANY RULES ALONG THE WAY
REMITTANCE MAN
SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
NO THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE REMITTANCE MAN

Verse
A MAN OF EMPTY POCKETS
FROM JINGLING HIS CHANGE
THE IDLENESS AND GRIEVING
ARE ALL THAT HE RETAINS
BY THE HARBOR LIGHTS OF SIDNEY
OR THE BORA BORA MOON
HE RECITES HIS SAD CONFESSION
TO THE SEAGULLS AND THE LOONS

Chorus
REMITTANCE MAN
BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY CLAN
BROKE TOO MANY RULES ALONG THE WAY
REMITTANCE MAN
SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
NO THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE REMITTANCE MAN

Bridge
YOU COULD CLAIM THAT YOU WERE BORN A PRINCE
BUT YOUR THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN CONVINCE
SURVIVOR WITH NO LIVELIHOOD, THAT YOU COULD EVER MAKE IT GOOD
BUT STILL YOU DREAM OF WHAT YOU CAN'T PRETEND

Verse
AN UNEXPECTED PASSENGER
BOARDED IN MARSEILLES
AN ANGEL FULL OF TENDERNESS
SHE GAVE HER HEART AWAY

SHE WAS BUT A GYPSY
HE WAS JUST A STRAY
THEY ALMOST MADE A MIRACLE
BUT IT SLOWLY SLIPPED AWAY

SO HE FOLLOWS THE EQUATOR
WITH A WISH TO RUN AGROUND
IT'S A VERY VICIOUS CIRCLE
GOING ROUND AND ROUND AND ROUND

NOW HE WATCHES FROM THE FANTAIL
AS THE MAINLAND DISAPPEARS
JUST LIKE THE FLYING DUTCH MAN
HE'S A PRISONER OF HIS FEARS

Chorus
REMITTANCE MAN
BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY CLAN
BROKE TOO MANY RULES ALONG THE WAY
REMITTANCE MAN
SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
NO THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND
NO THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND
NO THEY'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND

Diamond As Big As The Ritz Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
Verse
HIDDEN IN THE MOUNTAINS
UNDER THE EARTH AND STONE
A CUBIC MILE OF PERFECTION
A TREASURE NO ONE HAS KNOWN

ONE MAN CAME UPON THIS MOTHER LOAD
BUILT HIMSELF A THOUSAND ROOM CHATEAU

Verse
HE'S THE EMPEROR OF DIAMONDS
MASTER OF THE PRIZE
HE'S GOT A HOLD ON HAPPINESS
AND ALL THAT MONEY CAN BUY

EVERYDAY HE LIVES IN FASCINATION
THIS IS NOT AN EVERYDAY TEMPTATION

Chorus
IT WAS A DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THIS, TELL ME
WHO'S GONNA SAVE YOU WHEN YOUR A SLAVE TO
THE DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ

Verse
A BLESSING CAN BECOME A CURSE
IF YOU KEEP IT TO YOURSELF
YOUR OWN EXAGGERATION
IS NOT SO GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

IT'S THE PROPHECY OF THE UNATTAINABLE DREAM
IF YOU TAKE ONE LOOK BEHIND THE SHINE
IT DOESN'T ALWAYS GLEAM

EVERYDAY HE LIVES IN FASCINATION
THIS IS NOT AN EVERYDAY TEMPTATION

Chorus
IT WAY A DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THIS
WHO'S GONNA SAVE YOU WHEN YOUR A SLAVE TO
THE DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ

COAL UNDER PRESSURE
SPARKLE OF TREASURE
CRYSTALLINE MEASURE
ORNAMENTAL PLEASURE
IN THE CORNER OF YOUR EYE
MAKE A GROWN MAN CRY
ALL THE SEEDS YOU'VE SOWN

Verse
GREED CAN CRUMBLE CASTLE WALLS
GREED CAN PURCHASE YOU THRILLS
POWER IS A DANGEROUS THING
IT CAN MAIM IT CAN KILL

IT'S THE PROPHECY OF THE UNATTAINABLE DREAM
IF YOU TAKE ONE LOOK BEHIND THE SHINE
IT DOESN'T ALWAYS GLEAM

Chorus
IT WAS A DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THIS
WHO'S GONNA SAVE YOU WHEN YOUR A SLAVE TO
THE DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ

Chorus
IT WAS A DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WITH THIS, TELL ME
WHO'S GONNA SAVE YOU WHEN YOU'RE A SLAVE TO
THE DIAMOND AS BIG AS THE RITZ

Blue Heaven Rendezvous Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
Verse
BLUE LIGHT GUITARS
AND TROPICAL BREEZE
HUMMINGBIRDS MIME THE WORDS
AS THEY DANCE IN THE TREES
IT'S A FLASHBACK KIND OF CROWD
IT'S A CABARET SOUND
THERE'S STILL SOME MAGIC LEFT
IN THIS TOURIST TOWN

Chorus
THOSE CRAZY DAYS AND CRAZY WAYS
WE NEVER WANT TO UN-DO
WE'LL BE TOGETHER NOW AND FOREVER
AT THE BLUE HEAVEN RENDEZVOUS

Verse
WE WERE WEIRD ROMAN CANDLES
BURNING BRIGHT AT BOTH ENDS
AT THE END OF THE ROAD
IS WHERE THIS STORY BEGINS
WHERE THE GREEN OF THE GULF
MEETS THE BLUE OF THE SEA
WHAT MAKES IT ALL HAPPEN
STILL A MYSTERY TO ME

Chorus
THOSE CRAZY DAYS AND CRAZY WAYS
WE NEVER WANT TO UN-DO
WE'LL BE TOGETHER NOW AND FOREVER
AT THE BLUE HEAVEN RENDEZVOUS

Bridge
IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'D SAY
THEY'VE SEEN SOME ACCIDENTAL MASQUERADES
BUT IT'S NO SURPRISE
DANCES TILL DAWN, HEROES LONG GONE
JUST LET THAT GUITAR PLAY

Chorus
THOSE CRAZY DAYS AND CRAZY WAYS
WE NEVER WANT TO UN-DO
WE'LL BE TOGETHER NOW AND FOREVER
AT THE BLUE HEAVEN RENDEZVOUS
WE'LL BE TOGETHER NOW AND FOREVER
AT THE BLUE BLUE HEAVEN RENDEZVOUS

Jimmy Dreams Jimmy Buffett
Verse
JIMMY DREAMS HE'S A CHILD TILL THE END
WHAT A JOY WHEN YOU ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
THE WORLD'S SUCH A TOY
IF YOU'LL JUST STAY A BOY
YOU CAN SPIN IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

JIMMY FLIES WITH NO USE FOR DISGUISE
JUST ESCAPES USING MIRRORS AND CAPES
AND THE WORDS DO THE TRICK
THERE IS NO BIGGER KICK
THAN JUST RHYMING AGAIN AND AGAIN

Bridge
IT'S THE SOUND OF THE LOW TIDE,
THE SMELL OF THE RAIN
TRAVELIN' ALONE
ON MY BOAT AND MY PLANE
TAKE IT ALL IN IT'S AS BIG AS IT SEEMS
COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS
REMEMBER YOUR DREAMS

Verse
JIMMY STARES TOWARD THE BRIGHT PLEIADES
IT'S SO STRANGE
WHAT HIS DISTANT EYE SEES
WHO KNOW WHY YOU START
RE-DISCOVERING YOUR HEART
BUT YOU DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN

THE SOUND OF THE LOW TIDE,
THE SMELL OF THE RAIN
TRAVELIN' ALONE
ON MY BOAT AND MY PLANE
TAKE IT ALL IN IT'S AS BIG AS IT SEEMS
COUNT ALL YOUR BLESSINGS
REMEMBER YOUR DREAMS

Verse
JIMMY STARES TOWARD THE BRIGHT PLEIADES
IT'S SO STRANGE
WHAT HIS DISTANT EYE SEES
WHO KNOWS WHY YOU START
RE-DISCOVERING YOUR HEART
BUT YOU DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN
THE WORLDS STILL A TOY
IF YOU JUST STAY A BOY
AND THAT'S WHY JIMMY DREAMS

Lage Nom Ai Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
Verse
NORDSTROM WAS A SIMPLE MAN
WHO HATCHED A NON-CONFORMIST PLAN TO SAVE HIS ASS
EVERY NIGHT HE DANCED ALONE
AND BLOTTED OUT THE MONOTONE THAT WAS HIS PAST
HE PACKS HIS BAG OF MYSTERIES
AND LEAVES THE LONELY MEMORIES WHERE THEY BELONG
THEY CAME AND WENT SO EASILY
THIS RISING TIDE IDENTITY, SINGS LIKE A SONG

Chorus
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
WHEN YOU KNOW THAT LIFE IS JUST A GAME
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
HE'S THE MAN WHO GAVE UP HIS OWN NAME

Verse
IN THE ROLL OF COSMIC DICE
YOU WIN ONE HEART AND LOSE IT TWICE, BEFORE YOU KNOW
LOVE IS FINE UNTIL YOU TASTE
THIS MELANCHOLY BOUILLABAISSE CALLED LETTING GO

Chorus
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
WHEN YOU KNOW THAT LIFE IS JUST A GAME
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
HE'S THE MAN WHO GAVE UP HIS OWN NAME

Verse
HE MOVED ON UP TO OLD BEAN TOWN
AND SUMMERED ON THE VINEYARD SOUND, TO PASS THE DAY
ISLAND HOPPING, CRAB CAY BOUND
TENDING BAR HE THINKS HE'S FOUND A BETTER WAY
NOW WERE BACK WHERE WE BELONG
WITHOUT A CLUE AND STILL WITHOUT A MASTER PLAN
INCIDENT OR ACCIDENT
IT ALL DEPENDS ON IF YOU'RE MEANT TO UNDERSTAND

Chorus
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
WHEN YOU KNOW THAT LIFE IS JUST A GAME
LAGE NOM AI-NOM AI
HE'S THE MAN WHO GAVE UP HIS OWN NAME
HE'S THE MAN WHO GAVE UP HIS OWN NAME

Don't Chu-Know Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
YOU CAN SPEND ALL YOUR DAYS IN THE GRIND
CONVERTING YOUR NICKLES TO DIMES
YOU COULD STUFF ALL YOUR POCKETS TILL THEY OVERFLOW
DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW

YOU CAN SAY YOU'RE TOO OLD TO BE YOUNG
YOU THINK YOU'RE TOO SMART TO BE DUMB
BUT THE WELL SEASONED PRO KNOWS HOW LONG HE CAN GO
DON'T YOU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW

YOU CAN SING EVERY SONG THAT'S BEEN SUNG
CONQUER THE MOON AND THE SUN
BUT IF YOU ASKED ME IT'S ALL BOTH BEEN SAID AND BEEN DONE

WE'RE JUST RECYCLED HISTORY MACHINES
CAVEMEN IN FADED BLUE JEANS
IT'S THE UNANSWERED QUESTION IN EACH ONE OF US
DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW

Bridge
THE MORE WE LEARN THE LESS WE KNOW
WHAT YOU KEEP IS WHAT YOU CAN'T LET GO
TAKE IT FAST OR TAKE IT SLOW
JUST ONE WAY FOR YOU TO GO
DON'T CHU KNOW - LET'S GO NOW

YOU CAN SING EVERY SONG THAT'S BEEN SUNG
CONQUER THE MOON AND THE SUN
BUT IF YOU ASKED ME IT'S NOT IN THE RACE THAT YOU RUN
IT'S THE OUTCAST IN EACH ONE OF US

WHO GETS THE GIRL WHO IS TOO GLAMOROUS
THERE'S NO ONE TO DECEIVE, IT'S JUST ALL MAKE BELIEVE
DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW
DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW
DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW DON'T CHU KNOW

The Ballad Of Skip Wiley Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
HE'S A MAN ON A MISSION
WILD AS A RICOCHET
PICTURE IF YOU CAN
WHEN THE EVERGLADES RAN
FROM THE GULF COAST TO BISCAYNE BAY

HE'S GONNA GIVE IT BACK TO THE GATORS
LOCK THE TOURISTS UP IN THEME PARKS AND ZOOS
HE SAYS "JOIN ME FOR LUNCH AT THE REPTILES BRUNCH
WHERE THE BAROMETER SOUP IS YOU"

HE'S CRAZY AND DANGEROUS
BUT WHO ELSE CAN YOU TRUST
HE'S THE OUTLAW IN ALL OF US
THE ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORIST

Chorus
YOU CAN MESS WITH THE MOUSE IN ORLANDO
JILT A TOURIST IN ST. AUGUSTINE
YOU CAN SHOPLIFT ALL DAY AT BLOCKBUSTER
BUT YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN
NO YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN

Verse
THERE WERE CRIMES OF EPIC PROPORTIONS
ALL PART OF SKIP WILEY'S CRUSADE
TOURISTS WERE CACKIN' AND TOURISTS WERE PACKIN'
WHILE HE AND SKINK COOLED THEIR HEELS IN THE SHADE

THEN CAME THE CITRUS SENSATION
"WELCOME TO THE REVOLUTION" HE SAID
WITH A PIRATE'S PERSONA HE SNATCHED THE GRIDIRON MADONNA
AND THE BIG MOVERS CALLED FOR HIS HEAD

HE'S CRAZY AND DANGEROUS
BUT WHO ELSE CAN YOU TRUST
HE'S THE OUTLAW IN ALL OF US
THE ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORIST

Chorus
YOU CAN MESS WITH THE MOUSE IN ORLANDO
JILT A TOURIST IN ST. AUGUSTINE
YOU CAN RAG ON THE MIAMI DOLPHINS
BUT YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN
NO YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN
NO YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN

WILL SKIP'S CAPER IT KIND OF BACKFIRED
AND GOT THE ORANGE JUICE BARONS RATHER UPSET
IN THE LIGHT OF BAD MOODS, THESE MANHUNTS ENSUED
BUT SKIP EASILY SLIPPED THROUGH THE NET

HE WAS LAST SEEN A TOP OF A MANGROVE
PERCHED LIKE A WOUNDED OSPREY
HE WAS NOT MEANT TO LAST, HE BELONGS TO THE PAST
AND I HOPE HE GETS THERE ONE DAY

HE'S CRAZY AND DANGEROUS
BUT WHO ELSE CAN YOU TRUST
HE'S THE OUTLAW IN ALL OF US
THE ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORIST

Chorus
YOU CAN MESS WITH THE MOUSE IN ORLANDO
JILT A TOURIST IN ST. AUGUSTINE
YOU CAN SHOPLIFT YOUR DAYS AT BLOCKBUSTER
BUT YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN
NO YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN
NO YOU CAN'T STEAL THE ORANGE BOWL QUEEN

The Night I Painted The Sky Jimmy Buffett, Russ Kunkel, Jay Oliver, Roger Guth, and Peter Mayer
Verse
I CAME FROM THE NORTH ESCAPING CONVENTION
THE MODERN INVENTION THATWON'T LET ME BE
TO THE SHORES OF ST. MAARTEN WITH MY FICTION ADDICTION
TO RESTART THE FIRE A DREAMER'S REMEDY

Verse
INDEPENDENCE DAY AND ALL I REMEMBER
WAS A MIDNIGHT RAINBOW THAT FELL FROM THE SKY
AS I STAND ON THE BEACH I SLOWLY SURRENDER
TO THE CHILD IN ME WHO CAN'T SAY GOOD-BYE

Chorus
THE ROCKETS IN THE AIR
AND THE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
PUT AWAY THEIR DIFFERENCES FOR AWHILE
OH I AM STILL A CHILD WHEN IT COMES TO SOMETHING WILD
THAT WAS THE NIGHT I PAINTED THE SKY

Verse
I DUG IN THE SAND LIKE A BOY, ON A MISSION
AND THERE IN MY HANDS A PYRO'S DELIGHT
A BOMBADIER, A NIGHTTIME MAGICIAN
I SPARK THE SKY AS THE ROCKETS FLY FROM VIEW

Chorus
THE ROCKETS IN THE AIR
AND THE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
PUT AWAY THEIR DIFFERENCES FOR AWHILE
I AM STILL A CHILD WHEN IT COMES TO SOMETHING WILD
THAT WAS THE NIGHT I PAINTED THE SKY

Verse
OH THE MORTARS THEY ROAR IN ANTICIPATION
PRECEDING THE SIGH OF THE UPLIFTED EYES
IT SHOWERS US ALL IN SULFURIC SENSATION
THE COLORS SHINE IN A FIERY RHYME TONIGHT

Chorus
THE ROCKETS IN THE AIR
AND THE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE
PUT AWAY THEIR DIFFERENCES FOR AWHILE
I AM BUT A CHILD WHEN IT COMES TO SOMETHING WILD
OH THAT WAS THE NIGHT
THAT WAS THE NIGHT
OH THAT WAS THE NIGHT I PAINTED THE SKY
PAINTED THE SKY
PAINTED THE SKY

Mexico James Taylor
Verse
WAY DOWN HERE
YOU NEED A REASON TO MOVE
FEEL A FOOL
RUNNIN' YOUR STATE SIDE GAME
LOSE YOUR LOAD
LEAVE YOUR MIND BEHIND, BABY JAMES

Chorus
OH MEXICO
IT SOUNDS SO SIMPLE
I JUST GOT TO GO
THE SUN'S SO HOT
I FORGOT TO GO HOME
GUESS I'LL HAVE TO GO NOW

Verse
AMERICANO'S GOT THE SLEEPY EYES
BUT HIS BODY'S STILL SHAKEN LIKE A LIVE WIRE
SENIORITA WITH HER EYES ON FIRE, DON'T YOU KNOW

Chorus
OH MEXICO
IT SOUNDS SO SWEET
WITH THE SUN SINKIN' LOW
THE MOONS SO BRIGHT
LIKE TO LIGHT UP THE LIGHT
MAKE EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT

Verse
BABYS HUNGRY
AND THE MONEY'S ALL GONE
THE FOLKS BACK HOME
DON'T WANT TO TALK ON THE PHONE
SHE GETS A LONG LETTER
SENDS BACK A POST CARD
TIMES ARE HARD

Chorus
OH DOWN IN MEXICO
I NEVER REALLY BEEN
SO I DON'T REALLY KNOW
OOOOHHHHHH MEXICO
I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO GO NOW
OOOOHHHHHH MEXICO
I'VE NEVER REALLY BEEN
BUT I'D SURE LIKE TO GO
WOOOOHHHHHH MEXICO
I GUESS I'LL HAVE TO GO NOW

Thank you - and keep up the thoughts!
