JIMMY BUFFETT Quietly Making Noise Song LYRICS

Oscar Wilde died in bed
Several floors above my head
Living well beyond his means
In that crazy Paris scene
Rain falls down in sheets so clear
No one ever calls me here
Traveling by my self these days
I’m into jazz and felt berets
Far from the that old eastern shore
Searching for strange metaphors
I don’t want to be another victim of fashion
I don’t want to see my name in the paper each day
Leave that to the young Turks
They’re more handsome and dashing
Posing for paparazzi’s down Laguna way
Down in the metro I feel the world start to multiply
Bastille, rubber wheels, spiked heels, subterranean lullaby
Met an African prancer, a hemisphere dancer
Spied the ghost of Brassens
We smiled at the secret we shared
And I hid it like contraband

Quietly making noise, making noise
Starts with kindergarten toys
Not too soft not too loud
Just enough to draw a crowd
Quietly, quietly, quietly making noise
Followed the beat, I found myself in this patois spot

Outside a blizzard was blowing but inside the joint was hot
Zouk songs, rubber thongs, sing-a-longs
The words flew right by my face
Rhythm and motions, a blamma jamma potion
You cannot erase

Quietly making noise, making noise
Pissin off the old killjoys
Glass packs on a hot Mustang
A Telecaster with a twang
Quietly, quietly, quietly making noise

Singers and writers and poets
Have flocked here for centuries
The city of light is built upon mountains of memories
Baritone saxophone, monotones
Speak of the voice I’ve heard before
It’s a lasting impression
A Gypsy expression you cannot ignore

Jimmy Buffett Great Filling Station Holdup Song Lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1973
I pulled into the regular pump
I was feelin’ quite at ease
I rolled down my window and told the man, “fifty cents worth please”
Then out jumped my partner with his trusty pellet gun
He said, “boy this is a holdup, keep ‘a pumpin’ and don’t run”

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

We got fifteen dollars and a can of stp
A big ol’ jar of cashew nuts and a japanese tv
Feelin’ we had pulled the biggest heist of our career
We’re wanted men, we’ll strike again
But first let’s have a beer

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
Because that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

(guitar instrumental)

We were sittin’ in the krystal
About as drunk as we could be
In walks the deputy sheriff
And he’s holdin’ our tv
Roughed us then he cuffed us
And he took us off to jail
No pictures on a poster, no reward and no bail

Chorus:
And now I wish I was somewhere other than here
Down in some honky tonk, sippin’ on a beer
Yes I wish I was somewhere other than here
’cause that great fillin’ station holdup
Cost me two good years

Coda:
Yes that great fillin’ station holdup
It cost me two good years

JIMMY BUFFETT It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere Song LYRICS

The sun is hot and that old clock,
is movin’ slow, and so am I.
Work day passes like molasses,
in winter time, but it’s July.

Getting paid by the hour,
and older by the minute.
My boss just pushed me,
over the limit.

I could call him something,
think I’ll just call it a day…

Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

This lunch break is gonna take
all afternoon, half the night.
Tomorrow morning I know there’ll be hell to pay,
but, hey, that’s all right.

I ain’t had a day off now, in over a year.
My Jamaican vacation’s gonna start right here.
If the phone’s for me you can tell them
I just sailed away….

Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Instrumental]

I could pay off my tab, pour myself in a cab,
and be back to work before two.
At a moment like this, I can’t help but wonder,
what would Jimmy Buffett do.

[Jimmy:]
Funny you should ask Alan, I’d say…
Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve, but I don’t care.

[Together:]
Pour me something tall and strong.
Make it a hurricane, before I go insane.
It’s only half past twelve. But I don’t care,
it’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Alan:]
… but he don’t care, I don’t care.
Together
It’s five o’clock somewhere.

[Talking:]
[Jimmy:] What time zone am I on? What country am I in?
[Alan:] It doesn’t matter, it’s five o’clock somewhere!
[Jimmy:] It’s always on time for Margaritaville, come to think of it.
[Alan:] I heard that.
[Jimmy:] You’ve been there haven’t ya?
[Alan:] Yes sir!
[Jimmy:] I’ve seen your boat there.
[Alan:] I’ve been to Margaritaville a few times.
[Jimmy:] Alright, that’s good.
[Alan:] Stumbled on my way back.
[Jimmy:] OK, well I just want to make sure you keep it between the navigational beacons.
[Alan:] hahaha! Keep it between the bouys. I got it!
[Jimmy:] Alright, well it’s five o’clock. Let’s go somewhere!
[Alan:] I’m ready. Crank it up!
[Jimmy:] Let’s get out of here!
[Alan:] I’m gone!

Jimmy Buffett Another Saturday Night Lyrics

Another saturday night
By: sam cooke
Chorus:
Another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

I got in town a month ago
Ive seen a lot of girls since then
If I could meet em I could get em
But as yet I haven’t met em
That’s why Im in the shape Im in

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Now another fella told me
He had a sister who looked just fine
Instead of being my deliverance
She had a strange resemblance
To a cat name frankenstein

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
Im in an awful way

Chorus:
Yeah, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Its hard on a fella
When he don’t know his way around
If I don’t find me a honey
To help me spend this money
Im headin back to key west town

Chorus:
Oh, another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had someone to talk to
Im in an awful way

Chorus:
Just another saturday night and I aint got nobody
Ive got some money cause I just got paid
How I wish I had some chick to talk to
Im in an awful way

— spoken:
Its awful. all dressed up and no place to go. no one to help me spend
My flow. another saturday night. get me the pizza man.
