Jimmy Buffett – Why The Things We Do lyrics

In an old house down by the beach
Lives an old man who's just out of reach
Ohhh he's got nothin' to lose
Some say he's a crazy old man
A refugee from a rock and band
Oh oh he's still playin the blues

In the mornin' when you rise
Aren't you glad to be alive
Oh oh put on your barefoot shoes
When you dance beneath the moon rainbow
Can't you feel the afterglow
Oh oh why the things we do
Why the things we do

In the driftwood house you learn how to dream
Truth is stranger that fishin' it seems
Oh oh there's no earthly rules
And the people come to hear him say
Life's too short to live your way
Oh oh who's really fooling who
Invisible means are the key to support
Makes you a king in your own court
Oh oh what have you got to lose
Push the sadness from your heart

There's no living in the dark
Why the things we do
Why the things we do
Why the things we do
Why the things we do

Why the things we do
Why the things we do
Why the things we do
Why the things we do

In the mornin' when you rise
Aren't you glad to be alive
Oh oh put on your barefoot shoes
When you dance beneath the moon rainbow

Can't you feel the afterglow
Oh oh that's why the things we do
That's why the things we do
That's why the things we do
That's why the things we do
