Back this hitch up into the water
Untie all the cables and rope
Step onto the astro turf
Get yourself a koozie
Let's go

Who said anything about skiin'?
Floatin' is all I wanna do
You can climb the ladder
Just don't rock the boat while I barbecue

Chorus:
On the pontoon
Makin' waves and catchin' rays up on the roof
Jumpin' off the back, don't act like you don't want to
Party in slow motion
Out here in the open
Mmmmm... motorboatin'

(Who who who)

Reach your hand down into the cooler
Don't drink it if the mountains aren't blue
Try to keep it steady as you recline on your black intertube

Chorus:
Pontoon
Makin' waves and catchin' rays up on the roof
Jumpin' off the back, don't act like you don't want to
Party in slow motion
Out here in the open
Mmmmmm... motorboatin'


(Who who who)
(Who who who)

Bridge:
5 mile an hour with aluminum sides
Wood panelin' with a water slide
Can't beat the heat, so let's take a ride

Chorus:
On the pontoon
Makin' waves and catchin' rays up on the roof
Jumpin' off the back, don't act like you don't want to
Party in slow motion
I'm out here in the open
Mmmm... motorboatin'

On the pontoon

(Who who who)

On the pontoon

(Who who who)

Back this hitch out into the water
On the pontoon

(Who who who)

(Who who who)

    Absolutely my favorite song at present. Actually got engaged on a pontoon brigade on that same lake mathis in south texas. Also arrived at the wedding on the pontoon boat decorated to the hilt for a tropical wedding on the lake.

    It's exactly like a lake house and pontoon boat my niece and her husband used to have at lake gaston. 7 bedroom and plenty of sleeping bag area!! Parties every weekend in the summers. Never knew we could have so much fun! Great tune!! My favorite of the summer!!
