Margaritaville Lyrics

Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Margaritaville Nibblin' on sponge cake
Watchin' the sun bake
All of these parrotheads covered with oil
"Look at ya"
Strummin' my six string
On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp hey they're beginnin' to boil
(Bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble, bubble...)
Chorus:
Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know this is usually some woman's fault

I don't know the reason
I stayed here all season
With nothin' to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty
Oh those Atlanta cuties
Over the years well I have met me a few
"And they've been so good to me."

Chorus:
Wastin' away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
Now you really think I'm gonna admit this is my fault
Ha

I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
I broke my leg twice I had to limp on back home
But there's booze in the blender
Soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
(hang on, hang on, hang on)

Wastin' away again in Margaritaville (yes I am, yes I am)
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know it's my own damn fault
"Let's admit it boys"
Yes, some people claim that there's a woman to blame
There always is and I know
It's my own damn fault
My damn fault

"It's my fault alright."

"I'd like to take you back to the beginnings when I first heard this song. This is what got me out of Mobile, Alabama. Thank you Harry Belafonte. I hope you like what we've done to your song. Here we go."
