JIMMY BUFFETT lyrics - Barometer Soup

Bank Of Bad Habits

Original and similar lyrics
The rumors and the stories of my past I can't deny I'm no Saint Ignatius but again I'm no barfly The wrong thing is the right thing until you lose control I've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul Bank of bad habits The price of vice foretold One by one they'll do you in They're bound to take their toll The wrong thing is the right thing until you lose control I've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul Last night I said goodbye to a dear old friend of mine Just a throw back shell beach party, nothin' really asinine Rum and cooked animals and bullshit by the ton That party lasted way too long and I had too much fun Bank of bad habits The price of vice foretold One by one they'll do you in They're bound to take their toll The wrong thing is the right thing until you lose control I've got this bank of bad habits in a corner of my soul That bank of bad habits is worth its weight in gold Time for you to spend that dough You're the only one you owe So put away those alibis You can't fool that Banker in the sky [Spoken:] Now let me tell you about the 7 Deadly Sins: 1. Pride...Thou shalt not have pride in thy neighbor. 2. Coveting...Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife. 3. Lust...Thou shalt not lust after his neighbor's wife. 4. Anger...Do not be angry with your neighbor's wife. 5. Gluttony...Do not eat thy neighbor's wife's ........popcorn. 6. Envy...Do not envy your neighbor's wife. 7. Sloth...Do not be a slob. And the eighth deadly sin is............PIZZA! A picture's worth a thousand words just ask a cameraman And it's no sin to stop and look, I do it when I can But you have to purge that urge to merge You have to keep your head Or trouble is what you will find inside some stranger's bed Bank of bad habits The price of vice foretold One by one they'll do you in They're bound to take their toll The wrong thing is the right thing until you lose control I've got this bank of bad habits It's worth it's weight in gold

My Wifes A Wanton Wee Thing

Burns Robert
MY WIFE'S A WANTON WEE THING (Robert Burns) My wife's a wanton, wee thing, My wife's a wanton, wee thing, My wife's a wanton, wee thing, She winna be guided by me. She play'd the loon or she was married, She play'd the loon or she was married, She glar'd the loon or she was married, She'll do it again or she die. She sell'd her coat and she drank it, She sell'd her coat and she drank it, She row'd hersell in a blanket, She winna be guided for me. She mind't na when I forbade her, She mind't na when I forbade her, I took a rung and I claw'd her, And a braw gude bairn was she. tune: My Wife's a Winsome Wee Thing (388) filename[ WIFESWEE play.exe WIFESWEE ARB ===DOCUMENT BOUNDARY===

Death By Misadventure

JOHN HIATT "Riding With The King"
Well, Harry had a good job working' for the Secret Service He had a wife and kids at home who made him awful nervous He'd never done a damn thing you could call experimental And he had this aching feeling that his life was accidental So one day he burned his pinstripe suit and his leather shoulder holster He snapped a Polaroid and made a giant wanted poster He took it to a print shop and ordered up a thousand flyers And walked next door to the laundromat and blew his brains out in the drier And the tag on his toe read: Death by misadventure Ain't that some way to go? Death by misadventure Well, Harry's wife Estella took this matter rather lightly She could have cried and cried but then her looks might come unsightly She thought about her wardrobe and how much it was outdated And how this trumped up family thing was vastly overrated Her kids both turned against her and they took to drugs and stealing Some junkie killed 'em both for two dime bags they were dealing And sitting home alone disgusted by it all She blew the sole survivor off with ninety Nembutals And the tag on her toe read: Death by misadventure Ain't that some way to go? Death by misadventure So be careful how you choose your path and who you pick to go with Some folks they take to living fast while some prefer a slow death Some folks get confused and never quite know how they're going When you're laid out on that slab we're all the worse for knowing That the tag on your toe reads: Death by misadventure What a silly way to go. Death by misadventure

The Gun

JIM REEVES "Talkin' To Your Heart"
This is the story of love that came undone This is the story of two men and a gun of two men and a gun. A man that I'd never met stole my wife and son But that's been nearly three years now And it's over with and done At first I'd stare out into space while hate consumed my soul Hate was the creed by which I lived and revenge my only goal. But the road to happiness isn't paved with hate I'm glad I learned how to forgive before it was too late Now here's the way the other man paid for what he'd done I heard it from the man's own lips, who took my wife and son. I didn't really know this man but I'd seen him round He's a new guard at the factory where I work west of town This fellow swung into step with me and said I've got to talk I listened spellbound at his words as we stood on the walk. You the guard said hoarsely are a kind man I surmise As he stood there with his handkerchief wiping in his eyes Three years ago I wronged a man I stole his wife and son I didn't realize then the terrible thing that I had done. This thing gets hold of me at night and I can't sleep or rest Forgive me sir, but telling it seems to get it off my chest When my past looms up like this it kinda helps me to unload I'm one man sir who knows for sure that you reap just what you sow. I sure appreciate your listening it helps me a lot You know to have that man's forgiveness I'd give everything I've got Well I feel much better now I I didn't get your name More why that was my wife's name before we wed It's odd your name's the same. You know I'd kill a man who'd do to me the thing that I've done And when the truth got through to him he handed me his gun As I gave the weapon back I said what's done is done All I ask is just be kind to Jenny and my son...

Memorial Day

JAMES MCMURTRY "Childish Things"
Mama keeps tryin' to get the game on the radio Daddy's gotta know the score There's a big yellow thing on a flat bed trailer Wonder what that thing's for We got towels rolled up in the back seat window Keeping us out of the sun Just a hundred more miles and we'll be at grandma's Sure is gonna be fun Maybe she'll take us fishin' Maybe she'll bake us a pie Remember like she did that one time Back before grandpa died It's Memorial Day in America Everybody's on the road Let's remember our fallen heroes Y'all be sure and drive slow Ninety eight degrees in the shade of the tool shed Can't go back in the house They're all in the kitchen yellin' 'bout something Don't know what it's about Joey 'n Mary said not to worry Said it's just the same old fight Happens whenever they all get together Everything's really alright It's Memorial Day in America This is how it's supposed to be Let's remember our fallen heroes In the land of the free Daddy's in the big chair sippin' on a cold beer Grandma's cuttin' a switch She overheard Mary cussin' her brother Called him a son of a bitch She got a good green limb off a sweet gum sapling Man that's bound to sting But Mary don't cry just stands there and takes it Doesn't seem to feel a thing No Mary don't cry, you know she's a big girl Wonder what made her so mad She takes those licks looking in through the den door Staring right straight at her dad There's a big yellow thing on a flat bed trailer Daddy nearly hit that bird They're both in the front seat Starin' right straight ahead Neither one saying a word The sun's going down in the rear view mirror Gonna be driving all night Wonder if the neighbor's fed the canary Wonder if the cat's alright
