Go To Belize

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Verse 1]
I've been trying so hard to get away
And I think today just might be the day
To grab you by the hand
Run our feet through the warm sand
You know, the best way to escape your life is with me

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Verse 2]
Can you smell the coconut and gin?
And the salt spray sticking to your skin
It doesn't get better than this
Can't believe a place like this exists
It's so easygoing, laidback, and carefree

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Bridge]
This sweet-smelling ocean calms the nerves
It's exactly what the both of us deserve
Working from 8 to 5 each day
It sure does seem to really get in the way
Of putting up your feet with drink in hand
And lying in a hammock above the warm soft sand
So take a holiday, don't lose control
Let the crashing of the waves be the rhythm of your soul

[Chorus]
Well I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Verse 3]
Draw in a deep breath and let it out
The fresh air will erase your stress without a doubt
If I could find an old pay phone
And tell the boss I'm not coming home
Then we could spend our days in paradise by the sea

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

[Chorus]
I want to go to Belize
Endless water and a warm soft breeze
Oh, won't you accompany me please
'Cause baby, I want to go to Belize

Grand Bahama Scheme

[Chorus]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
Got my ass in the sand
With a cold one in hand
Just living my dream
‘Cause it’s a Grand Bahama scheme

[Verse 1]
So it started to rain
As I exit the plane
And I leave with my cargo in hand
Guitar by my side
I’ve decided to hide
And join in a tropical band

[Chorus]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
Got my ass in the sand
With a cold one in hand
Just living my dream
‘Cause it’s a Grand Bahama scheme

[Verse 2]
So won’t you take my advice
I won’t tell you this twice
Jimmy has the right idea
Going down to the islands
Gonna fish those pilings
I’ll buy you a couple of beers

[Chorus]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
Got my ass in the sand
With a cold one in hand
Just living my dream
‘Cause it’s a Grand Bahama scheme

[Verse 3]
The boss tries to call
I do nothing at all
As I lay in my hammock all day
I’m not going back
That old life was an act
For the rest of my life I will stay

[Chorus]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
Got my ass in the sand
With a cold one in hand
Just living my dream
‘Cause it’s a Grand Bahama scheme

[Chorus]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
Got my ass in the sand
With a cold one in hand
Just living my dream
‘Cause it’s a Grand Bahama scheme

[Outro]
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme
It’s a Grand Bahama scheme

Groovy Grouper

[Verse 1]
Way down south there's a little shack
They cook the sandwich that'll make your lips smack
It's a hidden place not many people know
About the delicious grouper down in Key Largo

[Chorus]
Groovy grouper
There they are swimming with the tide
Caught and filleted
Baked or fried
Served on a hamburger bun
With a slice of cheese
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys

[Verse 2]
It won't be long until your order's up
Fish sandwich with fries dunked in ketchup
You've never had anything like it before
You'll finish the first one and you'll order one more

[Chorus]
Groovy grouper
There they are swimming with the tide
Caught and filleted
Baked or fried
Served on a hamburger bun
With a slice of cheese
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys

[Verse 3]
So come on down, there's no better spot
The drinks are cold and the food is hot
The next time you need to get away
Take a trip down good old A1A

[Chorus]
Groovy grouper
There they are swimming with the tide
Caught and filleted
Baked or fried
Served on a hamburger bun
With a slice of cheese
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys

[Chorus]
Groovy grouper
There they are swimming with the tide
Caught and filleted
Baked or fried
Served on a hamburger bun
With a slice of cheese
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys

[Outro]
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys
You can't get it nowhere else
Like you get it in the Keys

Hard Luck Man

[Verse 1]
Took a walk down Hollywood Boulevard
I had some time to spare
I figured I would check out
How the stars were doing there
I looked over and I saw a man
He was sitting on the ground
He looked up at me and then he said
“Yeah, the world it let me down.”

[Chorus]
Now I’m just a hard luck man
Looking for some answers
Call me a mad man
Nobody seems to care
I’m just a hard luck man
Running out of time
Yeah well, man-to-man
Buddy could you spare a dime?

[Verse 2]
This man looked like he had tried so hard
To make something for himself
But instead the world decided
To stick his life up on a shelf
I sat right down beside him
He looked familiar to me
I asked him who he was
He said, “It’s who I used to be.”

[Chorus]
Now I’m just a hard luck man
Looking for some answers
Call me a mad man
Nobody seems to care
I’m just a hard luck man
Running out of time
Yeah well, man-to-man
Buddy could you spare a dime?

[Verse 3]
He looked like he had gone through hell
Just sitting on that street
On the Walk of Fame
You never know who you’re gonna meet
He told me his life story
It took an hour or two
I put some money in his hand
He smiled and said, “Thank you.”

[Chorus]
'Cause I’m just a hard luck man
Looking for some answers
Call me a mad man
Nobody seems to care
I’m just a hard luck man
Running out of time
Yeah well, man-to-man
Buddy could you spare a dime?

[Chorus]
I’m just a hard luck man
Looking for some answers
Call me a mad man
Nobody seems to care
I’m just a hard luck man
Running out of time
Yeah well, man-to-man
Buddy could you spare a dime?

[Outro]
Buddy could you spare a dime?

Have A Bermudaful Day

[Chorus]
Sitting under this lone palm
Feeling like this breeze is gonna take me away
But the ocean is so calm
Don’t you know everything is gonna go our way?
Have a Bermudaful day

[Verse 1]
Yeah it kinda reminds me
Of a place I’ve been before
You know the less you have of something
You want it more and more
Well I just can’t help myself
I can’t take it anymore
I gotta get back to where I’ve been
Relax on that sandy shore

[Chorus]
Sitting under this lone palm
Feeling like this breeze is gonna take me away
But the ocean is so calm
Don’t you know everything is gonna go our way?
Have a Bermudaful day

[Verse 2]
Well, I’ve been almost everywhere
From Mexico to Martinque
And I’ve even crawled from bar to bar
On good old Duval Street
But my love for the big blue ocean
Waves crashing at my feet
You just can’t beat the island
Where the salty air smells so sweet

[Chorus]
Sitting under this lone palm
Feeling like this breeze is gonna take me away
But the ocean is so calm
Don’t you know everything is gonna go our way?
Have a Bermudaful day

[Chorus]
Sitting under this lone palm
Feeling like this breeze is gonna take me away
But the ocean is so calm
Don’t you know everything is gonna go our way?
Have a Bermudaful day

[Outro]
Sitting under this lone palm
Sitting under this lone palm

Hula Girls

[Verse 1]
The band is here
And they’re ready to play
The hula girls
Start to wiggle and sway
It’s just another beautiful
Hawaiian night
The hula girls are dancing
Dancing tonight

[Chorus]
And the conch shells blow in time
And the hula girls they dance in line
Swaying to the beat
And the palm trees sway to the rhythm of the sea

[Chorus]
And the conch shells blow in time
And the hula girls they dance in line
Swaying to the beat
And the palm trees sway to the rhythm of the sea

[Verse 2]
Diamond Head
Is ready to blow
The crowd’s all here
Waiting for the show
Like a can of sardines
They’re packed in tight
The hula girls are dancing
Dancing tonight

[Chorus]
And the conch shells blow in time
And the hula girls they dance in line
Swaying to the beat
And the palm trees sway to the rhythm of the sea

[Chorus]
Yeah the conch shells blow in time
And the hula girls they dance in line
Swaying to the beat
And the palm trees sway to the rhythm of the sea

I Call It Paradise

[Chorus]
I’m flying out on Sunday
On a big old aeroplane
Going to an island
But I can’t recall it's name
They tell me that it’s different there
The natives are so nice
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

[Verse 1]
So many months of working
I have to get away
To end up on this island
It’s crazy in a way
We got roosters talking in the morn’
Frogs chirp hard at night
And it lasts long into the morning light

[Chorus]
Well I’m flying out on Sunday
On a big old aeroplane
Going to an island
But I can’t recall it's name
They tell me that it’s different there
The natives are so nice
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

[Verse 2]
Pastel colored houses
Lined up on the seashore
So many pirate caverns
Too many to explore
The grass is always green
And the sun it always shines
Ask anyone, it’s truly one of a kind

[Chorus]
Well I’m flying out on Sunday
On a big old aeroplane
Going to an island
But I can’t recall it's name
They tell me that it’s different there
The natives are so nice
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

[Bridge]
It’s the perfect escape
To a distant type of world
We’ll sail beyond the sunset
Like a painting or a mural

[Verse 3]
Pink sand, warm sunlight
And clear blue skies await
If you get the chance to go
Don’t dare hesitate
It’s a place where the water’s aqua blue
And the sky is pink at night
Sit your ass in the sand and everything’s alright

[Chorus]
Well I’m flying out on Sunday
On a big old aeroplane
Going to an island
But I can’t recall it's name
They tell me that it’s different there
The natives are so nice
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

[Chorus]
Well I’m flying out on Sunday
On a big old aeroplane
Going to an island
But I can’t recall it's name
They tell me that it’s different there
The natives are so nice
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

[Outro]
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise
Some call it their home
But me, I call it paradise

I'm Runnin'

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

[Verse 1]
Now one step forward
And two steps back
I gotta keep going
I can’t look back
My life keeps flashing
Before my eyes
No family, no friends
I broke all ties
The next train leaving
About half past ten
Doubt if this town
Will see me again

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

[Verse 2]
That big old train
Stopped at the border
Checked my passport
Nothing in order
They did claim
I broke the law
And then told me
I get one call
I should’ve jumped these rails
A long time ago
Now I’m stuck in jail
With no place to go

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

[Chorus]
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ as fast as I can
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’
I’m runnin’ from the man

Island Daydream

[Chorus]
Please don't wake me up
From my island daydream
I'm relaxing under my coconut tree
No don't take me away
From my island daydream
This is where I'm supposed to be

[Verse 1]
Reality's a bummer and it slowly fades
From paperwork to tropical scenes
My boss is screaming, but I can't hear him
Over the whirl of the margarita machines

[Chorus]
Please don't wake me up
From my island daydream
I'm relaxing under my coconut tree
No don't take me away
From my island daydream
This is where I'm supposed to be

[Verse 2]
I'll take salty air, sticking to my skin
While I unwind beneath a cashew tree
I can't think of any better way to spend my time
You know it sounds pretty good to me

[Chorus]
Please don't wake me up
From my island daydream
I'm relaxing under my coconut tree
No don't take me away
From my island daydream
This is where I'm supposed to be

[Verse 3]
I'll take a stroll down, to the ocean's edge
And stick my toes in the tranquil sea
And just when I'm about as happy as a clam
Someone taps me on the shoulder and asks me

[Chorus]
Did I wake you up
From your island daydream?
Were you relaxing under your coconut tree?
Did I take you away
From your island daydream?
'Cause that's where you're supposed to be

[Chorus]
Please don't wake me up
From my island daydream
I'm relaxing under my coconut tree
No don't take me away
From my island daydream
This is where I'm supposed to be

[Outro]
Please don't wake me up
From my island daydream
This is where I'm supposed to be
