Margaritaville

Jimmy Buffett

    [D]Nibblin' on sponge cake, watchin' the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with [A] oil
Strummin' my six-string, On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp, they're beginnin' to [D] boil [D7]

[G] Wastin' a [A] way again in Marga [D] ritaville [D7]
[G] Searching for my [A] lost shaker of [D] salt [D7]
[G] Some people [A] claim that there's a [D] wo [A] man to [G] blame
But I [A] know [G] it's nobody's [D] fault

[D] I don't know the reason I stay here all season
Nothin' is sure but this brand new tat [A] too
But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie
How it got here I haven't a [D] clue [D7]

[G] Wastin' a [A] way again in Marga [D] ritaville [D7]
[G] Searching for my [A] lost shaker of [D] salt [D7]
[G] Some people [A] claim that there's a [D] wo [A] man to [G] blame
Now I [A] think, [G] hell, it could be my [D] fault

[D]I blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop-top
Cut my heel had to cruise on back [A] home
But there's booze in the blender, and soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang [D] on [D7]

[G] Wastin' a [A] way again in Marga [D] ritaville [D7]
[G] Searching for my [A] lost shaker of [D] salt [D7]
[G] Some people [A] claim that there's a [D] wo [A] man to [G] blame
But I [A] know [G] it's my own damned [D] fault

[G] Some people [A] claim that there's a [D] wo [A] man to [G] blame
And I [A] know [G] it's my own damned [D] fault
