Six string music
By: jimmy buffett, g.e. smith
1994
Turn off the t.v.
Turn off the crap
Kick off your high heels
Climb up in my lap

Chorus:
And I'll play music
A song from me to you
Simple six string music
A ballad or the blues

No interruptions
>from the telephone
Don't need call waitin
Just you and me alone

Chorus:
And my six string music (six string music)
A song from me to you
Simple six string music (six string music)
A ballad or the blues

Oh I remember that night in africa
My daughter and my little guitar
Straddling the equator
The king of zanzibar
Those shy black hidden faces
They didn't know me from adams cat
But the words and the singin
And the people in a ring
And the whole night went like that

Now some folks like icing
Some folks like cake
Some swim in the ocean
Some paddle in a lake
Well you can get into beethoven
Or you can groove on jimmy reed
But keep it simple stupid
All we really need is

Chorus:
Six string music (six string music)
A song from me to you
Simple six string music (six string music)
A ballad or the blues

Six string music (six string music)
Aint no symphony
Its just six string music (six string music)
So elementary
