Jimmy Buffett She said I can't go back to America soon It's so goddamn cold it's gonna snow until June Yeah, they're freezin' up in Buffalo stuck in their cars And I'm lyin' here 'neath the sun and the stars. Customs man tell her that she's gotta leave She's got a plan hidden up her shrewd sleeve Wants to find her a captain, a man of strong mind And any direction he blows will be fine.
Chorus: Please don't say manana if you don't mean it I have heard those words for so very long Don't try to describe the ocean if you've never seen it Don't ever forget that you just may wind up being wrong.
Tried and I tried but I don't understand Never seems to work out the way I had it planned Hanging out at a marina when Steve Martin called Singin' anybody there really want to get small.
But women and water are in short supply There's not enough dope for us all to get high I hear it gets better, that's what they say As soon as we sail on to Cane Garden Bay.
Chorus: Please don't say manana if you don't mean it I have heard your lines foe so very long Don't try to describe the scenery if you've never seen it Don't ever forget that you just may wind up in my song.
Called all my friends on those cheap nightly rates Sure was good to talk to the old United States While the lights of St. Thomas lie twenty miles west I see General Electric's still doing their best.
I've got to head this boat south pretty soon New album's old and I'm fresh out of tunes But I know that I'll get 'em, I know that they'll come Through the people and places and Caldwood's Rum
Chorus: So please don't say manana if you don't mean it I have done your lines for so very long Don't try to describe a Kiss concert if you've mever seen it Don't ever forget that you just may wind up being gone And I hope Anita Bryant never does one of my songs.
