Dreamsicle
By: jimmy buffett
1979
Let me tell ya now
He sips, he quips
Dreams a lot about sailing ships
Wants to throw it all away
Wants to have it back someday

Loves fool, sears tools
Wants to win that football pool
Spend it on some real good grass
Disappearin oh so fast

Tell my story pain and glory
Guess my occupation
Free and easy warm and breezy
Overnight sensation

I got house pets, lear jets
Tryin to learn about basinettes
Oh miss piggy dance with me
Let me take you to the sea

Dreamsicle, big dill pickle
High school honeys sure were fickle
Ill be damned, country ham
Takes me back to alabam

So wont you tell my story pain and glory
Guess my occupation
Free and easy warm and breezy
Overnight sensation

Let me tell ya now
He sips, he quips
Dreams a lot about sailing ships
Ill be damned, country ham
Takes me back to alabam
Ill be damned, country ham
Takes me back, to alabama

Notes -
Background vocals: juan cadiz, deborah mccoll, harry dailey
