about

This is not autobiographical, as I was fortunate to be born in a lovely city on the sea... but what the heck, the rum & the good times it is!

lyrics

I grew up in the city waiting for the sky to fall
My life, what a pity, had nothing tropical
I lived for the day when I would sail away
And leave behind this tired world of gray

I grew up in a world where boring is the norm
Where wishing for an island is a local art form
But yesterday I dropped anchor in the bay
And tonight I'm dancing, watching your hips sway

Looks like I made it my friends
Don't feel bad for me ever again
The rum and the good times erased the pain
Looks like I made it my friends

I live on a beach that takes my breath away
The sun invites me to nap and to play
At sun down we get together and pray
So much to be thankful for, I must say

Looks like I made it my friends
Don't feel bad for me ever again
The rum and the good times erased the pain
Looks like I made it my friends
