JIMMY BUFFETT lyrics - A Lot To Drink About
JIMMY BUFFETT
"A Lot To Drink About"
(Jimmy Buffett, Mac McAnally, Will Kimbrough)

Hey, have you noticed that the world has changed
That the news is all bad
Well, I think its time for a song about that

Up on the east side of Manhattan
Theyre still dancing with the stars
While over in sub-prime city
Its getting ugly in the local bars
Watching the news only gives me the blues
Theres too much going wrong

It takes the likes of me to hit the reboot key
And write a high speed drinking song

Millionaires losing everything
Hey, welcome to the other side of life
There goes the yacht there goes the Rolls
But, you get to keep your wife

And dont forget the automakers
Swimming upstream like a trout
They let the shit hit the fan
And then made a plan
Weve got a lot to drink about

Theres the price of oil
The war of the spoils
Heres your bucket for the big bailout
Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan
Weve got a lot to drink about

Now Madoff made off with all the money
And his clients are down to skunk weed
Repeat after me its so easy to see
Were only talking simple greed

And those Somalian pirates are counting all their gold
While Bush and Cheney aint around
And all the good lookers seem to be Russian hookers
From Key West to London town

With the price of oil
War of the spoils
Heres your bucket for the big bailout
Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan
Weve got a lot to drink about

So pour me some Tennessee whiskey
Pour me a fine Jamaican rum
That loud mouth soup
Can get ya kind of looped
Tequila, of course I want some!

Well the family devalues
And little children count their net worth
And the truth wherever its hiding
Cant be found on Google Earth
Citibanks buying jets with our money
I wanna flog em with a buggy whip
Lets hope Barack and Joe wont let the volcano blow
And patch the hole in our sinking ship

Theres the price of oil
The war of the spoils
Heres your bucket for the big bailout
Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan
Weve got a lot to drink about

Recession, opression, depression good God
CNN keeps bummin me out
I cant take another doomsday minute
Got a lot to drink
A lot to think
A lot to drink about

God bless America
