Volcano - Live 2011 (digital album)

  1. Fins (Live)

    FINS (LIVE)
    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.
  2. Volcano (Live)

    VOLCANO
    Jimmy Buffett, Keith Sykes & Harry Dailey Now, I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    when the volcano blow.
    Let me say it now,
    I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    when the volcano blow. Ground, she movin' under me.
    Tidal waves out on the sea.
    Sulphur smoke up in the sky.
    Pretty soon we learn to fly Chorus
    Let me hear you, now
    I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    when the volcano blow.
    Let me hear you now.
    I don't know, I don't know where I'm a gonna go
    when the volcano blow. My girl quickly say to me,
    "Mon you better watch your feet."
    Lava come down soft and hot.
    "You better lava me now or lava me not. Chorus No time to count what I'm worth,
    cause I just left the planet Earth.
    Where I go I hope there's rhum.
    Not to worry mon soon come. Chorus But I don't want to land in New York City,
    I don't want to land in Mexico.
    I don't want to land on no Three Mile Island;
    I don't want to see my skin a-glow. Don't want to land in Comanche Sky Park,
    or in Nashville, Tennessee.
    I don't want to land in no San Juan airport or
    the Yukon Territory. Don't want to land in no San Diego.
    Don't want to land in no Buzzards Bay.
    I don't want to land on no Ayahtolla.
    I got nothin' more to say.
  3. Treat Her Like a Lady (Live)

    TREAT HER LIKE A LADY (LIVE)
    Jimmy Buffett, Dave Loggins Some of us sailors call her home
    She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
    Some of us sailors call her our own
    Guess that's the reason why I treat her like a lady
    Treat her like a lady, just treat her like a lady Now I don't like the sound of the ground movin' round
    Or winds spinnin' out of control
    California earthquakes only seem to make a' me
    shake, rattle and roll I been too long on the mainland
    Hotels, rental cars and phones
    Time to cast them aside, catch the very next tide
    And go back where belong Some of sailors call her home
    She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
    Some of us sailors call her our own
    Guess that's the reason why I treat her like a lady
    Treat her like a lady Great whales travel the wrong lines
    Dodging those deadly harpoons
    Spawning their young as their ancestors done
    In the depths of her hidden lagoons There are times I find myself with them
    And times I feel as they do
    We're on a similar course it's just a different source
    But I'm in danger of extinction too Some of us sailors call her home
    She big and she's strong and she's mighty
    Some of us sailors call her our own
    Guess that's the reason why I treat her like a lady
    Treat her like a lady
    Treat her like a lady
    Treat her like a lady
    And miss her when I'm gone.
  4. Stranded on a Sandbar (Live)

    STRANDED ON A SANDBAR (LIVE)
    Jimmy Buffett I Enjoy this life as a jester
    Seems to keep me moving around
    Like the wind that blows, tides that flow
    I have my ups and downs All a part of this strange plan I'm sure
    Start a new chapter each day
    Honey, Love gets lost, time gets tossed
    `Cause we both got our own different ways I feel I'm stranded on a sandbar
    Stuck in my tracks like a street car
    Playin' it for all that it's worth
    I'm just payin' for my sins on earth Now I use to go crazy for days at a time
    Now I'm takin my time with my days
    Haven't found the answers like some that I know
    I'm just stuck in fairly nice maze Climb to the top of the island tonight
    Sit beneath the cashew tree
    I want to count the stars, lights on the cars
    that are shinin' up and down on me I feel like I'm stranded on a sandbar
    Baby, I'm stuck in my tracks like a street car
    Playin' it for all that it's worth
    I'm just payin' for my sins on earth I feel like I'm stranded on a sandbar
    Sugar, I'm stuck in my tracks like a street car
    Playin' it for all that it's worth
    I'm just payin' for my sins on earth I enjoy this life as a jester,
    Seems to keep me moving around
  5. Chanson Pour Les Petits Enfants (Live)

    CHANSON POUR LES PETITS ENFANTS (LIVE)
    Jimmy Buffett Now young Mr. Moon flew away in the night
    With his best friend Magnus right by his side
    They soared through the Milky Way counting the stars
    Once around Venus, twice around Mars Then they spied an island rise out of the sea
    They fell back to Earth just as free as you please
    The children all gathered the church bells did ring
    Suddenly everyone started to sing Chorus
    Chanson pour les petits enfants
    Chason pour toute le monde
    Chanson pour les petits enfants
    Chanson pour toute le monde Queen of the island she welcomed them in
    Asked them questions of where they have been
    She offered them chocolate she offered them tea
    They all took their seats in the top of a tree And racoons brought wine and the mice they brought cheese
    Beautiful birds floated by on the breeze
    From out of the oceans the dolphins began
    Humming a tune that soon covered the land Chorus So young Princess Lia brought coral and pearls
    Gifts to the travelers from some other world
    The Bushdoctor mixed up a magical spell
    Swore them to secrecy, never to tell So young Mr. Moon flew away in the night
    With his best friend Magnus right by his side
    The sun was rising, they'd be home by noon
    Humming the words to this magical tune Chorus Song for the children
    Song for the world
  6. Survive (Live)

    SURVIVE (LIVE)
    Jimmy Buffett, Mike Utley I play the stereo loud
    When I'm away from the maddening crowd
    Smokin', jokin', clowns we all are Sometimes I kinda get real ill
    When I receive my monthly telephone bill
    But you say it and I'll pay it
    `Cause it helps me to Chorus
    Survive stay alive
    'Til I see you again
    Survive stay alive
    Can't say where it ends Clouds lift and there are mountains below
    Been a while since I've seen any snow
    Chillin' so thrillin' so good to be back Feels nice to be home for a while
    Let's sip champagne til we break into smiles
    We'll go dancin' romancin'
    `Cause your the reason I
    Survived stayed alive
    Through the thick and the thin
    Survive stay alive
    When will it all end But my bags ain't unpacked
    `Cause I've got to go back and play
    But I know we'll both Survive stay alive
    Through the thick and the thin
    Survive stay alive
    Until it all ends Survive stay alive
    When will it all end
    Survive stay alive
    Till I see you again
  7. Lady I Can\'t Explain (Live)

    LADY I CAN'T EXPLAIN (LIVE)
    Jimmy Buffett What could I do?
    That's never been done before
    What can I say?
    That hasn't been said by scores If I was a designer I could do nothing finer
    Than dress you in style
    But I'm a hopeless romantic still
    behind all these antics
    Is a heart full of smiles So I'll just keep on dreamin'
    The thoughts that are in my brain
    You just keep on being
    The lady I can't explain I know that I've
    The imagination of a child
    And there are times
    When I let it all run wild But if I hurt, you forgive
    Still you won't let me live
    Some of those episodes down That's why I love you
    And put no one above you
    Love your sights and your sounds So I'll just keep on movin'
    When the forecast calls for rain
    You just keep on being
    The lady I can't explain So I'll just keep on movin'
    When the forecast calls for rain
    You just keep on being
    The lady I can't explain
    Yes I love you
    Put no one above you
    You're the lady I can't explain
  8. Boat Drinks (Live)

    BOAT DRINKS
    Jimmy Buffett Boat drinks. Boys in the band ordered boat drinks.
    Visitors just scored on the home rink.
    Everything seems to be wrong. Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap airfare.
    I've got to fly to Saint Somewhere.
    I'm close to bodily harm. Chorus
    Twenty degrees and the hockey game's on.
    Nobody cares; they are way too far gone,
    screamin' "Boat drinks," somethin'
    to keep them all warm.
    This morning I shot six holes in my freezer.
    I think I got cabin fever.
    Somebody sound the alarm.
    I'd like to go where the pace of life's slow.
    Could you beam me somewhere, Mister Scott?
    Any old place here on Earth or in space.
    You pick the century and I'll pick the spot. I know I should be leaving this climate.
    I got a verse but can't rhyme it.
    I gotta go where it's warm. Boat drinks.
    Waitress, I need two more boat drinks.
    Then I'm headin south 'fore my dream shrinks.
    I gotta go where it's warm. I gotta go where it's warm.
    I gotta go where it's warm.
    I gotta go where there ain't any snow,
    where there ain't any blow,
    'cause my fin sinks so low.
    I gotta go where it's warm.
  9. Dreamsicle (Live)

    DREAMSICLE
    Jimmy Buffett Let me tell you now he sips, he quips
    Dreams a lot about sailing ships
    Wants to throw it all away
    Wants to have it back someday Love's fool, Sears tool
    Wants to win that football pool
    Spend it on some real good grass
    Disappearing oh so fast Tell my story pain and glory, guess my occupation
    Free and easy, warm and breezy
    Overnight sensation I got house pets, Lear jets
    Tryin' to learn about basinettes
    Oh Miss Piggy dance with me
    Let me take you to the sea Dreamsicle, big dill pickle
    High school honeys sure were fickle
    I'll be damned country ham, takes me back to Alabam Won't you tell my story, pain and glory, guess my occupation
    Free and easy, warm and breezy
    Overnight sensation Let me tell you now he sips, he quips
    Dreams a lot about sailing ships
    I'll be damned country ham, takes me back to Alabama
    I'll be damned country ham, takes me back to Alabama
  10. Sending the Old Man Home (Live)

    SENDING THE OLD MAN HOME
    Jimmy Buffett They're sending the old man home
    Back where the buffalo roam
    Out in Pacific they say he was the best
    Now he's in his "civies" headin' home like all the rest He'll never forget Rosa Lee
    Or sleepless nights he fought upon the sea
    He'll only have the memories
    Or great books by James Jones
    `Cause they're sending the old man home Far away
    Far away
    Another life so very far away They'll tear down the officers clubs
    And write off the overdue subs
    So let's drink to their memories
    Our heros and our pals
    To those crazy navy flyers
    To those swell Hawaiian gals The sailors will dance in the street
    Then they'll mothball the whole damn fleet
    We'll only have the picture books
    Of land and sea and foam `Cause they're sending the old man home He'll only have his memories
    Or great books by James Jones
    `Cause they're sending the old man home
