Look'in back at my background tryin' to
Some things are still a mystery to me
I'm just livin' in the sunshine,
Yeah, listenin to Murphy, Walker and Willie,

are wrinkled and they lean on a crutch.
Well I hate those bastards so much.
all the way up to fantasy land.
They look a lot better as beer cans.
Why some people live like they do.
Never even seen the clues.
I know we've been doing our part.
and some Texas hidden here in my heart.
Well now, I might have joined the merchant marine,
And on top of that I got married too early,
But those crazy days are over,
the wrong things you've done.
Figured out it's time to have a little fun.
Well now, if I ever live to be an old man,
I'm gonna buy me a sweat stained Bogart suit
And then I'll sit him on my shoulder
I'm gonna teach him how to fuss,
And pull the cork out of a bottle of wine.
Yeah, I got a Caribbean soul I can barely control
