    Lyrics
    BROWN EYED GIRL
    Van Morrison

    Hey, where did we go?
    Days when the rains came
    Down in a hollow
    Playin' a new game

    Laughin' and a runnin'
    Skippin' and a jumpin'
    In the misty mornin' fog
    With our hearts a thumpin'
    It was you, my brown eyed girl
    You, my brown eyed girl

    Now what ever happened
    Tuesday is oh so slow
    Goin' down the old mine
    With a transistor radio

    Standin' in a sunlit lane
    Hidin' 'hind a rainbow's wall
    Slippin' and a slidin'
    All along the waterfall
    It was you, my brown eyed girl
    You, my brown eyed girl

    Do you remember when
    We used to sing
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

    So hard to find my way
    Now that I'm on my own
    Thought about it just the other day
    My, where's the time all gone

    Can't remember back then Lord
    Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' 'bout
    Makin' love in the green grass
    Behind the stadium
    With you, my brown eyed girl
    Do you remember when
    We used to sing
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

  • 3 Disc 1 - License to Chill (Live)
    Lyrics
    License To Chill
    By Jimmy Buffett/Mac McAnally/Al Anderson
    (with Kenny Chesney)

    Work, work, work
    Big pile of it and the boss is a jerk
    Just want to disappear
    Wishin’ I was somewhere other than here
    Livin’ for the weekend
    Jump right off the deep end
    With just enough money to buy

    CHORUS

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night’s still young
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

    Girls, girls, girls
    Ain’t nothin’ like them in the whole wide world
    So damn smart and cute
    And it’s amazing what they pass off as a bathing suit
    Winners and losers
    Sailors and cruisers
    We’re all qualified

    CHORUS

    For a license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night’s still young
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    A one note samba lasts all night long
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

  • 4 Disc 1 - Pencil Thin Mustache (Live)
    Lyrics
    PENCIL-THIN MUSTACHE
    Jimmy Buffett

    Now they make new movies in old black and white,
    With happy endings, where nobody fights,
    So if you find yourself in that nostalgic rage,
    Honey, jump right up and show your age.

    I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache,
    the "Boston Blackie" kind, or a
    two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket,
    and an autographed picture of Andy Divine.

    Oh, I remember bein' buck toothed and skinny
    Writin' fan letters to Sky's niece Penny.
    Oh, I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache,
    then I could solve some mysteries too.
    Oh it's Bandstand, Disneyland, growin up fast,
    Drinkin' on a fake I.D.
    And Rama of the jungle was everyone's Bawana,
    But only jazz musicians were smokin marijuana.
    Yeah, I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache,
    then I could solve some mysteries too.

    But then it's flat-top, dirty bop, copin' a feel'
    grubbin on the living room floor;
    They send you off to college to try to gain
    a little knowledge,
    But all you want to do is learn how to score.
    Yeah, but now I'm gettin' old, don't wear underwear,
    I don't go to church, and I don't cut my hair;
    But I can go to movies and see it all there,
    Just the way that it use to be.

    That's why I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache
    the "Boston Blackie" kind, or a
    two-toned Ricky Ricardo jacket,
    And an autographed picture of Andy Divine.

    Oh, I could be anyone I wanted to be,
    Maybe suave Eerol Flynn or the Sheik of Araby.
    If I only had a pencil-thin mustache,
    then I could do some crusing too.

    Yeah, Brylcreem, a little dab'll do yah,
    Oh, I could do some cruising too.

  • 5 Disc 1 - Off to See the Lizard (Live)
    Lyrics
    OFF TO SEE THE LIZARD
    Jimmy Buffett/Jay Oliver

    I was raised by a maid who came from Martinique
    She wore geckos round her neck and bracelets on her feet
    A superstitious woman from the land of sugar cane
    She'd sing the sun to bed and dance out in the rain
    Dance out dance out dance out dance out in the rain

    She'd excite us with his legend that the
    Africans had told
    About a red iguana who turned lava into gold
    We'd mount an expedition headin' out into the bay
    Superstitious children playing pirate for a day

    CHORUS

    Off to see the lizard
    Off to see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja Veja Veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Bein' rich and famous seems to have its ups and downs
    That's the price you pay for being troubadours
    and clowns
    Godzilla's halitosis it be vaporizing cars
    Elvis up in Michigan or maybe out on Mars
    Dance out dance out dance out to the stars

    But livin' in the briar patch ain't what it appears
    Sooner or later you gotta face your fears
    I heard it from the parrot verbalizing in the tree
    I heard it in the songllines of the aborigine

    Off the see the lizard
    Off the see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Does it work for me?
    Yeah yeah
    Will it work for you?
    Yeah yeah
    If you believe it will
    Yeah yeah
    It will come true

    I got problems wif my brain underneath my curls
    Problems wif Loraine and all the other girls
    Love a wealthy woman and the pretty plane she flies
    If you think this songs confusing you should see it through my eyes
    Dancin, dancin, dancin through my eyes

    I'm turning off the waterfall the tourists can go home
    Feel it time to travel time to write a poem
    Time to seek some therapy I'm goin' walkabout
    Answers are the easy part questions raise the doubt

    Off the see the lizard
    Off to see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

  • 6 Disc 1 - Life is Just a Tire Swing (Live)
    Lyrics Life is Just a Tire Swing
    A1A

    I remember the smell of the creosote plant,
    When we'd have to eat on Easter with my
    Crazy old uncle and aunt.
    They lived in a big house Antebellum style,
    And the wind would blow across the old bayou,
    And I was a tranquil little child.

    Life was just a tire swing.
    'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing.
    Blackberry pickin', eatin' fried chicken,
    And I never knew a thing about pain.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    In a few summers my folks packed me off to camp;
    Yeah, me and my cousin' Baxter
    In our pup tent with a lamp.
    And in a few days Baxter went home,
    And he left me by myself.
    And I knew that I'd stay, it was better that way,
    And I could get along without any help.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    And I've never been west of New Orleans
    Nor east of Pensacola.
    My only contact with the outside
    world was an RCA Victrola.
    Elvis would sing and then I'd dream about
    expensive cars, and who would've figured twenty
    years later I'd be rubbing shoulders with the stars.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing.
    Chasin' after sparrows with rubber tip arrows,
    Knowin' I could never hurt a thing,
    And life was just a tire swing.

    Then the other morning on some Illinois road
    I fell asleep at the wheel,
    But was quickly wakened up by a 'Ma Bell'
    telephone pole, and a bunch of Grant Wood
    Faces screaming, 'Is he still alive?'
    But through the window could see
    it hangin' from a tree, and I knew
    I had survived.

    Life was just a tire swing.
    Jambalaya's still the best song that I can sing.
    Blackberry pickin', eatin' fried chicken,
    And I finally learned a lot about pain,
    'cause life is just a tire swing.

    Lyrics
    GYPSIES IN THE PALACE
    Jimmy Buffett, Glenn Frey & Will Jennings

    So long Boss, knock 'em dead, don't worry 'bout a thing
    Wish that we could come along, we'd love to hear you sing
    The limo's here, your bags are packed, the list is by the phone,
    Me and Snake will watch your place and treat it like our own

    Look at all this liquor
    Look at all this food
    It's only gonna go to waste
    We're not really being rude
    But the good stuff's in his closet, I swear he wouldn't mind
    Hell, we''ll just shoot the lock off, I do it all the time

    We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
    The order of the sleepless knights will now assume the throne
    We ain't got no money, we ain't got no fight
    But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

    There's damsels in distress out there and we got all this beer
    We'll free them from their condos and bring them over here
    We'll show them his gold records
    We'll play his music loud
    We'll party just like Bubba does
    We'll do the old man proud

    We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
    We're gypsies in the palace, and we're going wild tonight.

    He's the greatest guy to work for, man, he's really cool
    Hey Snake, this party's getting dull, throw someone in the pool
    Hey, let's all take our clothes off and form a conga line
    Watch out for that broken glass, hey Snake, we need more wine

    We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
    We're gypsies in the palace and we're raising hell tonight, hey

    Oh, hi there Boss, what's goin' on?
    You say you're coming when?
    I'll send Snake to pick you tomorrow night at ten, okay

    Everybody out of here, the show is closing down
    We've got to find someone to clean this up,
    He's coming back to town

    Hi there boss, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed
    your lawn
    We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you
    were gone

    Man it sure is peaceful here, you really got it all
    If you ever hit the road again, give me and Snake
    a call

    We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
    The order of the Sleepless Knights will now assume
    the throne
    We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right
    But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

    Hello?
    Hey, Jimmy, it's Glenn
    Glenn, How ya' doing?
    Fine man, I'm going on the road, do you know anyone who
    could house sit for me?
    I got these two great guys that look after my place man,
    they're the best.

    Lyrics
    IT'S MIDNIGHT AND I'M NOT FAMOUS YET
    Jimmy Buffett & Steve Goodman

    Catch the elevator from the penthouse suite
    And take it down to the casino
    The God almighty sound of money movin' round
    Can be heard all the way to Reno

    Chorus
    Well it's midnight and I'm not famous yet
    Tryin' to win it all with one more bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight and I'm just gettin' ready to go
    Lester Polyester signs another marker
    Like the high rollers do
    Seven come eleven
    His brand new baby needs Gucci shoes
    Well it's midnight and she's not famous yet

    Tryin' to break the bank with one more bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight and Lester's gettin' ready to roll

    Instrumental

    They're pagin' someone we know
    Lester hits a Keno
    he's not leavin' yet
    Vacuum cleaners hummin'lounge act still is strummin'
    It's their twenty fourth set
    Well it's midnight and they're not famous yet
    Tryin' to win with one last bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight got nowhere to go

    Lyrics Grapefruit - Juicy Fruit
    A WHITE SPORTS COAT AND A PINK CRUSTACEAN by Jimmy Buffett

    Grapefruit
    Bathing suit
    Chew a little Juicy Fruit
    Wash away the night

    Drive-in
    Guzzle gin
    Commit a little mortal sin
    It's good for the soul.

    (Bridge)
    And oh, it gets so damn lonely
    When you're on the plane all alone
    And if I had the money, Honey
    I'd strap you in beside me
    And never ever leave you
    Leave you at home all alone and crying.

    Ten speed
    No need
    My pick-up gets me where I please
    Chuggin' down the street.
    But I'll be leavin'
    In a little while
    So close your eyes and I'll
    Be back real soon

    (Repeat first verse)

  • 11 Disc 1 - School Boy Heart (Live)
    Lyrics
    School Boy Heart
    Jimmy Buffett & Matt Betton

    I got a school boy heart, a novelist eye
    Stout sailor's legs and a license to fly
    I came with nomad feet and some wandering toes
    That walk up my longboard and hang off the nose

    I suppose the need to focus never arose
    So something like a Swiss Army knife, that's my life
    Frankenstein had nothing on this body of mine
    The villagers still flockin' to see, to see me
    Breakin' free, breakin' free

    "Cause I got a school boy heart, novelist eye
    Stout sailor's legs and a license to fly
    I got a bartender ear and a beachcomber style
    Piratical nerve and a vaudevillian style

    I-yi-yi-yi-yi, i-yi-yi-yi-yi

    I suspect I died in some cosmic shipwreck
    With all hands spread all over the deck,--what the heck.
    Then some kind of unseen and unscrupulous mind
    Began to pick up what he could find, added ice
    Shook me twice, rolled the dice

    Now I got a school boy heart, a novelist eye
    Stout sailor's legs and a license to fly
    I got a native tongue from way down south
    It sits in the cheek of my Gulf coastal mouth

    I got a school boy heart, a novelist eye
    Stout sailor's legs and a license to fly
    I came with nomad feet and some wandering toes
    That glide up my longboard and hang off the nose

    I-yi-yi-yi-yi, i-yi-yi-yi-yi,........

  • 12 Disc 1 - Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes (Live)
    Lyrics
    CHANGES IN LATITUDES, CHANGES IN ATTITUDES
    Jimmy Buffett

    I took off for a weekend last month
    Just to try and recall the whole year.
    All of the faces and all of the places,
    wonderin' where they all disappeared.
    I didn't ponder the question too long;
    I was hungry and went out for a bite.
    Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum,
    and we wound up drinkin' all night.

    It's those changes in latitudes,
    changes in attitudes nothing remains quite the same.
    With all of our running and all of our cunning,
    If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.

    These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes;
    Nothing remains quite the same.
    Through all of the islands and all of the highlands,
    If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

    Reading departure signs in some big airport
    Reminds me of the places I've been.
    Visions of good times that brought
    so much pleasure
    makes me want to go back again.
    If it suddenly ended tomorrow,
    I could somehow adjust to the fall.
    Good times and riches and son of a bitches,
    I've seen more than I can recall...(to chorus)

    I think about Paris when I'm high on red wine;
    I wish I could jump on a plane.
    And so many nights I just dream of the ocean.
    God, I wish I was sailin' again.
    Oh, yesterdays are over my shoulder,
    So I can't look back for too long.
    There's just too much to see waiting in front of me,
    and I know that I just can't go wrong
    with these...(to chorus)

    Lyrics
    ONE PARTICULAR HARBOUR
    Jimmy Buffett & Bobby Holcomb

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    Nature lives (life to nature)
    Have pity for the Earth
    (Love the Earth)

    I know I don't get there often enough
    But God knows I surely try
    It's a magic kind of medicine
    That no doctor could prescribe

    I used to rule my world from a pay phone
    And ships out on the sea
    But now times are rough
    And I got too much stuff
    Can't explain the likes of me

    Chorus:
    But there's this one particular harbour
    So far but yet so near
    Where I see the days as they fade away
    And finally disappear

    But now I think about the good times
    Down in the Caribbean sunshine
    In my younger days I was so bad
    Laughin' about all the fun we had

    I've seen enough to feel the world spin
    Mixin' different oceans meetin' cousins
    Listen to the drummers and the night sounds
    Listen to the singers make the world go 'round

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    Lakes below the mountains
    Flow into the sea
    Like oils applied to canvas
    They permeate through me

    And there's that one particular harbour
    Sheltered from the wind
    Where the children play on the shore each day
    And all are safe within

    Most mysterious calling harbour
    So far but yet so near
    I can see the day when my hair's full gray
    And I finally disappear

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    UA PAU TE MAITAI NO TE FENUA
    RE ZAI NOA RA TE ORA O TE MITIE

    Bounty of the land is exhausted
    But there's still abundance on the sea

  • 14 Disc 1 - Fins (Live)
    Lyrics
    FINS
    Jimmy Buffett, Deborah McColl, B.Chance, Tom Corcoran

    She came down from Cincinnati.
    It took her three days on the train.
    Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
    hoped to see the sun again.
    But now she lives down by the ocean.
    She's takin' care to look for sharks.
    They hang out in the local bars,
    And they feed right after dark.

    Chorus
    Can't you feel 'em circlin' (closin'in) honey?
    Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?
    You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
    and you're the only bait in town.
    You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
    and you're the only girl in town.

    She's savin' up all of her money.
    Wants to head south in May;
    Maybe roll in the sand with a rock'n'roll man,
    Somewhere down Montserrat way.
    But the money's good in the season;
    Helps to lighten her load.
    Boys keep her high as the months go by.
    She's gettin' postcards from the road.

    Chorus
    Sailed off to Antigua.
    It took her three days on a boat.
    Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
    Maybe keep her dreams afloat.
    But now she feels like a remora,
    'cause the school's still close at hand.
    Just behind the reef are the big white teeth
    of the sharks that can swim on the land.

    BROWN EYED GIRL

    Hey, where did we go?
    Days when the rains came
    Down in a hollow
    Playin' a new game

    Laughin' and a runnin'
    Skippin' and a jumpin'
    In the misty mornin' fog
    With our hearts a thumpin'
    It was you, my brown eyed girl
    You, my brown eyed girl

    Now what ever happened
    Tuesday is oh so slow
    Goin' down the old mine
    With a transistor radio

    Standin' in a sunlit lane
    Hidin' 'hind a rainbow's wall
    Slippin' and a slidin'
    All along the waterfall
    It was you, my brown eyed girl
    You, my brown eyed girl

    Do you remember when

    Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da
    Sha la la la la la la la la la la ti da

    So hard to find my way
    Now that I'm on my own
    Thought about it just the other day
    My, where's the time all gone

    Can't remember back then Lord
    Sometimes I'm overcome thinkin' 'bout
    Makin' love in the green grass
    Behind the stadium
    With you, my brown eyed girl
    Do you remember when

    Lyrics
    License To Chill
    By Jimmy Buffett/Mac McAnally/Al Anderson
    (with Kenny Chesney)

    Work, work, work
    Big pile of it and the boss is a jerk
    Just want to disappear
    Wishin’ I was somewhere other than here
    Livin’ for the weekend
    Jump right off the deep end
    With just enough money to buy

    CHORUS

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night’s still young
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

    Girls, girls, girls
    Ain’t nothin’ like them in the whole wide world
    So damn smart and cute
    And it’s amazing what they pass off as a bathing suit
    Winners and losers
    Sailors and cruisers
    We’re all qualified

    CHORUS

    For a license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    With a little bit of money the night’s still young
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

    A license to chill
    And I believe I will
    Let the rat race run roll around
    In the sun until
    Trouble turns funny and songs get sung
    A one note samba lasts all night long
    Leave me alone I ’ve got a license
    License to chill

  • 18 Disc 2 - Off to See the Lizard (Live)
    Lyrics
    OFF TO SEE THE LIZARD
    Jimmy Buffett/Jay Oliver

    I was raised by a maid who came from Martinique
    She wore geckos round her neck and bracelets on her feet
    A superstitious woman from the land of sugar cane
    She'd sing the sun to bed and dance out in the rain
    Dance out dance out dance out dance out in the rain

    She'd excite us with his legend that the
    Africans had told
    About a red iguana who turned lava into gold
    We'd mount an expedition headin' out into the bay
    Superstitious children playing pirate for a day

    CHORUS

    Off to see the lizard
    Off to see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja Veja Veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Bein' rich and famous seems to have its ups and downs
    That's the price you pay for being troubadours
    and clowns
    Godzilla's halitosis it be vaporizing cars
    Elvis up in Michigan or maybe out on Mars
    Dance out dance out dance out to the stars

    But livin' in the briar patch ain't what it appears
    Sooner or later you gotta face your fears
    I heard it from the parrot verbalizing in the tree
    I heard it in the songllines of the aborigine

    Off the see the lizard
    Off the see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Does it work for me?
    Yeah yeah
    Will it work for you?
    Yeah yeah
    If you believe it will
    Yeah yeah
    It will come true

    I got problems wif my brain underneath my curls
    Problems wif Loraine and all the other girls
    Love a wealthy woman and the pretty plane she flies
    If you think this songs confusing you should see it through my eyes
    Dancin, dancin, dancin through my eyes

    I'm turning off the waterfall the tourists can go home
    Feel it time to travel time to write a poem
    Time to seek some therapy I'm goin' walkabout
    Answers are the easy part questions raise the doubt

    Off the see the lizard
    Off to see the lizard
    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

    Deja deja deja vu, believe it
    And it will come true
    Veja veja veja du
    What works for me might work for you

  • 19 Disc 2 - Life is Just a Tire Swing (Live)
    Lyrics Life is Just a Tire Swing
    A1A

    I remember the smell of the creosote plant,
    When we'd have to eat on Easter with my
    Crazy old uncle and aunt.
    They lived in a big house Antebellum style,
    And the wind would blow across the old bayou,
    And I was a tranquil little child.

    Life was just a tire swing.
    'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing.
    Blackberry pickin', eatin' fried chicken,
    And I never knew a thing about pain.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    In a few summers my folks packed me off to camp;
    Yeah, me and my cousin' Baxter
    In our pup tent with a lamp.
    And in a few days Baxter went home,
    And he left me by myself.
    And I knew that I'd stay, it was better that way,
    And I could get along without any help.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    And I've never been west of New Orleans
    Nor east of Pensacola.
    My only contact with the outside
    world was an RCA Victrola.
    Elvis would sing and then I'd dream about
    expensive cars, and who would've figured twenty
    years later I'd be rubbing shoulders with the stars.
    Life was just a tire swing.

    'Jambalaya' was the only song I could sing.
    Chasin' after sparrows with rubber tip arrows,
    Knowin' I could never hurt a thing,
    And life was just a tire swing.

    Then the other morning on some Illinois road
    I fell asleep at the wheel,
    But was quickly wakened up by a 'Ma Bell'
    telephone pole, and a bunch of Grant Wood
    Faces screaming, 'Is he still alive?'
    But through the window could see
    it hangin' from a tree, and I knew
    I had survived.

    Life was just a tire swing.
    Jambalaya's still the best song that I can sing.
    Blackberry pickin', eatin' fried chicken,
    And I finally learned a lot about pain,
    'cause life is just a tire swing.

    Lyrics
    GYPSIES IN THE PALACE
    Jimmy Buffett, Glenn Frey & Will Jennings

    So long Boss, knock 'em dead, don't worry 'bout a thing
    Wish that we could come along, we'd love to hear you sing
    The limo's here, your bags are packed, the list is by the phone,
    Me and Snake will watch your place and treat it like our own

    Look at all this liquor
    Look at all this food
    It's only gonna go to waste
    We're not really being rude
    But the good stuff's in his closet, I swear he wouldn't mind
    Hell, we''ll just shoot the lock off, I do it all the time

    We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
    The order of the sleepless knights will now assume the throne
    We ain't got no money, we ain't got no fight
    But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

    There's damsels in distress out there and we got all this beer
    We'll free them from their condos and bring them over here
    We'll show them his gold records
    We'll play his music loud
    We'll party just like Bubba does
    We'll do the old man proud

    We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
    We're gypsies in the palace, and we're going wild tonight.

    He's the greatest guy to work for, man, he's really cool
    Hey Snake, this party's getting dull, throw someone in the pool
    Hey, let's all take our clothes off and form a conga line
    Watch out for that broken glass, hey Snake, we need more wine

    We're gypsies in the palace, there ain't no wrong or right
    We're gypsies in the palace and we're raising hell tonight, hey

    Oh, hi there Boss, what's goin' on?
    You say you're coming when?
    I'll send Snake to pick you tomorrow night at ten, okay

    Everybody out of here, the show is closing down
    We've got to find someone to clean this up,
    He's coming back to town

    Hi there boss, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed
    your lawn
    We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you
    were gone

    Man it sure is peaceful here, you really got it all
    If you ever hit the road again, give me and Snake
    a call

    We're gypsies in the palace, he's left us here alone
    The order of the Sleepless Knights will now assume
    the throne
    We ain't got no money, we ain't got no right
    But we're gypsies in the palace, we got it all tonight

    Hello?
    Hey, Jimmy, it's Glenn
    Glenn, How ya' doing?
    Fine man, I'm going on the road, do you know anyone who
    could house sit for me?
    I got these two great guys that look after my place man,
    they're the best.

  • 22 Disc 2 - It's Midnight and I'm Not Famous Yet (Live)
    Lyrics
    IT'S MIDNIGHT AND I'M NOT FAMOUS YET
    Jimmy Buffett & Steve Goodman

    Catch the elevator from the penthouse suite
    And take it down to the casino
    The God almighty sound of money movin' round
    Can be heard all the way to Reno

    Chorus
    Well it's midnight and I'm not famous yet
    Tryin' to win it all with one more bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight and I'm just gettin' ready to go
    Lester Polyester signs another marker
    Like the high rollers do
    Seven come eleven
    His brand new baby needs Gucci shoes
    Well it's midnight and she's not famous yet

    Tryin' to break the bank with one more bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight and Lester's gettin' ready to roll

    Instrumental

    They're pagin' someone we know
    Lester hits a Keno
    he's not leavin' yet
    Vacuum cleaners hummin'lounge act still is strummin'
    It's their twenty fourth set
    Well it's midnight and they're not famous yet
    Tryin' to win with one last bet
    Nothin' can stop my thirty-two hop
    Or my ten dollar yo-yo-yo
    It's midnight got nowhere to go

    Lyrics
    CHANGES IN LATITUDES, CHANGES IN ATTITUDES
    Jimmy Buffett

    I took off for a weekend last month
    Just to try and recall the whole year.
    All of the faces and all of the places,
    wonderin' where they all disappeared.
    I didn't ponder the question too long;
    I was hungry and went out for a bite.
    Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum,
    and we wound up drinkin' all night.

    It's those changes in latitudes,
    changes in attitudes nothing remains quite the same.
    With all of our running and all of our cunning,
    If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.

    These changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes;
    Nothing remains quite the same.
    Through all of the islands and all of the highlands,
    If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane

    Reading departure signs in some big airport
    Reminds me of the places I've been.
    Visions of good times that brought
    so much pleasure
    makes me want to go back again.
    If it suddenly ended tomorrow,
    I could somehow adjust to the fall.
    Good times and riches and son of a bitches,
    I've seen more than I can recall...(to chorus)

    I think about Paris when I'm high on red wine;
    I wish I could jump on a plane.
    And so many nights I just dream of the ocean.
    God, I wish I was sailin' again.
    Oh, yesterdays are over my shoulder,
    So I can't look back for too long.
    There's just too much to see waiting in front of me,
    and I know that I just can't go wrong
    with these...(to chorus)

    Lyrics
    ONE PARTICULAR HARBOUR
    Jimmy Buffett & Bobby Holcomb

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    Nature lives (life to nature)
    Have pity for the Earth
    (Love the Earth)

    I know I don't get there often enough
    But God knows I surely try
    It's a magic kind of medicine
    That no doctor could prescribe

    I used to rule my world from a pay phone
    And ships out on the sea
    But now times are rough
    And I got too much stuff
    Can't explain the likes of me

    Chorus:
    But there's this one particular harbour
    So far but yet so near
    Where I see the days as they fade away
    And finally disappear

    But now I think about the good times
    Down in the Caribbean sunshine
    In my younger days I was so bad
    Laughin' about all the fun we had

    I've seen enough to feel the world spin
    Mixin' different oceans meetin' cousins
    Listen to the drummers and the night sounds
    Listen to the singers make the world go 'round

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    Lakes below the mountains
    Flow into the sea
    Like oils applied to canvas
    They permeate through me

    And there's that one particular harbour
    Sheltered from the wind
    Where the children play on the shore each day
    And all are safe within

    Most mysterious calling harbour
    So far but yet so near
    I can see the day when my hair's full gray
    And I finally disappear

    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI
    IA ORA TE NATURA
    E MEA AROFA TEIE AO NEI

    UA PAU TE MAITAI NO TE FENUA
    RE ZAI NOA RA TE ORA O TE MITIE

    Bounty of the land is exhausted
    But there's still abundance on the sea

  • 27 Disc 2 - Fins (Live)
    Lyrics
    FINS
    Jimmy Buffett, Deborah McColl, B.Chance, Tom Corcoran

    She came down from Cincinnati.
    It took her three days on the train.
    Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
    hoped to see the sun again.
    But now she lives down by the ocean.
    She's takin' care to look for sharks.
    They hang out in the local bars,
    And they feed right after dark.

    Chorus
    Can't you feel 'em circlin' (closin'in) honey?
    Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?
    You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
    and you're the only bait in town.
    You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
    and you're the only girl in town.

    She's savin' up all of her money.
    Wants to head south in May;
    Maybe roll in the sand with a rock'n'roll man,
    Somewhere down Montserrat way.
    But the money's good in the season;
    Helps to lighten her load.
    Boys keep her high as the months go by.
    She's gettin' postcards from the road.

    Chorus
    Sailed off to Antigua.
    It took her three days on a boat.
    Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
    Maybe keep her dreams afloat.
    But now she feels like a remora,
    'cause the school's still close at hand.
    Just behind the reef are the big white teeth
    of the sharks that can swim on the land.

    Lyrics
    DEFYING GRAVITY

    I live on a big round ball
    I never do dream I may fall
    And even one day if I do
    Well I'll jump up and smile back at you
    I don't even know where we are
    They tell me were circling a star
    Well I'll take their word, I don't know
    But I'm dizzy so it may be so

    I'm riding a big round ball
    I never do dream I may fall
    And even the high must lay low
    But when I do fall I will be glad to go
    Yes when I do fall I will be glad to go


  • 29 Disc 2 - Bonus Video: Elvis Presley Blues (Live)
    Lyrics
    Elvis Presley Blues
    (Gillian Welch/David Rawlings)

    I was thinking that night about Elvis
    The day that he died
    Day that he died

    I was thinking that night about Elvis
    The day that he died
    Day that he died

    Just a country boy
    That combed his hair
    And he put on a shirt his Mama made and he went on the air

    And he shook it like a chorus girl
    And he shook it like a Harlem queen
    And he shook it like a midnight rambler Baby
    Like you never seen
    Never seen

    I was thinking that night about Elvis
    The day that he died
    Day that he died
    How he took it all out of black and white
    Grabbed his wand in the other hand and he held on tight

    And he shook it like a hurricane
    He shook it like to make it break
    And he shook it like a Holy Roller Baby
    With his soul at stake
    His soul at stake

    I was thinking that night about Elvis
    The day that he died
    Day that he died
    He was alone on a long decline
    Thinkin’ how happy John Henry was that he fell down and died

    When he shook it and it rang like silver
    He shook it and it shined like gold
    He shook it and he beat that steam drill Baby
    Well bless my soul
    Bless my soul

    I was thinking that night about Elvis
    The day that he died
