Jimmy Buffett – Margaritaville lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1977
Nibblin on sponge cake
Watchin the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with oil
Strummin my six-string
On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they're beginnin to boil

Chorus:
Wastin away again in margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know it's nobodys fault

I don't know the reason
I stayed here all season
Nothin to show but this brand new tattoo
But it's a real beauty
A mexican cutie
How it got here I haven't a clue

Chorus:
Wastin away again in margaritaville
Searchin for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
Now I think
Hell, it could be my fault

I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

Wastin away again in margaritaville
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
Yes and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know it's my own damn fault

    We went to a margaritaville restaurant in orlando, fl once. I loved the food and the music.
    The song was originally going to be recorded by elvis presley, but he had died that year (1977). Jimmy buffet recorded it instead. Alan jackson has a newer version of the song.
    As of april 2012 a margaritaville restaurant is going to open in hollywood, florida. I hope I will like it.
    Currently, it is being built.
