Jimmy Buffett – The Tiki Bar Is Open lyrics

[Chorus:]
Thank God the tiki bar is open
Thank God the tiki torch still shines
Thank God the tiki bar is open
Come on in and open up your mind

On a leave of absence
With no resemblance to reality
I felt like a rocket launched into the wild blue yonder
By the boys down at Kennedy.

Checked into His Majesty's Court Hotel
Where the sign said "praise his name"
I was tired and alone I didn't feel too well
But I don't think that he was to blame.

[Chorus]

Full moon over (Concert City/State)
Full moon in my mind
And my sun tan dream is still out of reach
And the strip malls are robbing me blind

Well his name was Captain Adam Troy
And he sailed the "Kon-Tiki"
Now the captain's gone but he won't be forgotten
Nor his likes will we ever see

[Chorus]

Well a drink ain't no solution
But it can calm your fears
And if that tiki bar closes down tonight
Well I just might dissappear

[Chorus 2x]
