Life Is Good Today – MMMM

Why must the weekends fly by so fast?  Oh, that’s right – time does fly when you’re having fun…or you’re really busy.  This weekend sort of went by in a blur, we’re up to our eyeballs with something I’m unable to blog about – but it’s a great something, and hopefully I’ll be able to fill you in on the awesomeness when the time comes.  For now, I’ll just have to be a tease.

Since it is Monday, and it happens to be a freebie week – and since I did music overload on you last week, I’ll keep it simple this week with only one song that always gets my toes tapping and is continuing the summer theme we started last week:

Toes Lyrics
Zac Brown Band

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today, life is good today

Well, the plane touched down just about three o’clock
And the city’s still on my mind
Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
I was still in the baggage line

Concrete and cars are their own prison bars
Like this life I’m living in
But the plane brought me farther, I’m surrounded by water
And I’m not going back again

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today, life is good today

Adios and vaya con Dios
Yeah, I’m leaving GA
And if it weren’t for tequila and pretty senoritas
I’d have no reason to stay

Adios and vaya con Dios
Yeah, I’m leaving GA
Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one
And grab my guitar and play

Four days flew by like a drunk Friday night
As the summer drew to an end
They can’t believe that I just couldn’t leave
And I bid adieu to my friends

‘Cause my bartender, she’s from the islands
Her body’s been kissed by the sun
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar
And I don’t know if it’s her or the rum

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today, life is good today

Adios and vaya con Dios
A long way from GA
Yes, and all the muchachas, they call me big poppa
When I throw pesos their way

Adios and vaya con Dios
A long way from GA
Someone do me a favor and pour me some Jaeger
And I’ll grab my guitar and play

Adios and vaya con Dios
Going home now to stay
The senoritas don’t care-o when there’s no dinero
Yeah, I got no money to stay

Adios and vaya con Dios
Going home now to stay

I’m just gonna drive up by the lake
And put my ass in a lawn chair, toes in the clay
Not a worry in the world, a PBR on the way
Life is good today, life is good today.

Life is good today – enjoy your Monday!

Great lyrics! “Her body’s been kissed by the sun” makes me think of India Arie’s song Brown Skin.

I’ve never heard of this song either until now. It does have a similar sound, but I can’t quite place it. Nice theme though for the week.

23 Run DMT June 6, 2011 at 2:03 pm

What a fun song! I’ve never heard it before, but it definitely fits my Jimmy Buffet style because my mind constantly drifts off to some beach. Life is certainly good. Amen to that!

Can’t wait to hear all about your awesomeness! Such a tease. lol
