PARADISE

(Verse 1)

Way up here in the ice and snow, lakes are frozen and I'm cold to the bone

Crank up the fire and grab my guitar, play my way to a southern star

Passin' time with all my friends, snow is looking like miles of sand

Fire up the blender that sounds so nice, welcome to my paradise

(Chorus)

No matter where you are, you can smile

Take a break from life for awhile

Find your heaven and grab you a slice

Make your own paradise

(Verse 2)

Hot as hell in these fields of corn, no sign of rain and my patience is worn

Well I'm a farmer and I love who I am, bustin' my butt, workin' this land

Fill up the pool and call up some friends

Corn rows lookin' like miles of sand

Grab the cooler with beer on ice, welcome to my paradise

(Repeat Chorus)

(Music Break)

(Verse 3)

Plenty of sunshine and big palm trees, I'm in the islands livin' the dream

Sing on the beaches to tourists all day, take a nap and then go out to play

Sun-tanned ladies and a warm island breeze, miles of sand to do what you please

Head to the tiki bar with cold drinks on ice, welcome to my paradise

(Repeat Chorus)

(Final Chorus)

No matter where you are, you can smile

Take a break from life for awhile

Come down and see me and I'll treat you real nice

Cuz this is my paradise

Grab your self a slice

And make your own paradise

 

A PIRATE LOVE STORY

(Verse 1)

Captain Crown and Ginger, they roamed the seas holding hands

They pillaged and plundered like lightning and thunder

The most feared couple off land

The captain he was a pirate, he loved his whiskey, his ship and his gold

But there was something missing, a woman to love him and hold

He searched across the oceans, in every ship and port he had known

But with a tired crew he knew just what to do, so they sailed into a Key they called Bone

(Chorus)

Captain Crown and Ginger, they roamed the seas holding hands

They pillaged and plundered like lightning and thunder

The most feared couple off land

(Verse 2)

It was there in Cayo Hueso, at a creaky ole' waterfront bar

He spotted her auburn hair flowing, as she slung drinks to those near and far

Now Ginger she was a beauty, and she could handle herself rather well

But she too was missing someone, who could get her out of this hell

Like two shy little children, they shared glances but never a word

Until he passed her a note asking her to his boat, now their legends of the pirate world

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

 

INTO THE BLUE

(Verse 1)

I know why, I'm feeling blue

Baby, it's because of you

It doesn't matter, how long you've been gone

I can still hear your voice in every song

(Verse 2)

Memories, come flooding back again

As I sail out, around the bend

We dropped anchor, over in that bay

We held each other close as the island music plaid

(Bridge 1)

Sunlight on the water, reminds me of your hair

Your smile so warm and bright, we never had a care

I'll remember, everything about you

As I sail out, into the blue

(Verse 3)

Reminders, everywhere I turn

That Lovers Cross, will forever burn

I wanna go where, I'm closest to you

So I'll sail out, into the blue

(Bridge 2)

Into the blue, that's where I'll find you

So I'll sail on through

We'll be together, now and forever

Out there, into the blue

(Verse 4)

My friends say, I need to move on

Get on with life, now that you are gone

They don't understand, why I do what I do

I keep sailing, into the blue

I wanna sail out, into the blud

I'm gonna sail out, and find you

(Musical Break)

(Outro)

Into the Blue

 

FREE TO BE ME

(Verse 1)

Sailing out into the bay, don't feel like doing a damn thing today

Cuz I'm free, free to be me

My lovely lady is by my side, gonna roll on the wind and the tide

Cuz I'm free, free to be me

(Chorus)

Free like the birds floating in the wind

Never goin' back to the real world again

Start a new life in the islands so it seems

Change my wardrobe to a lighter fare

Soak up the sun and the salty air

And head on down to the beaches that hold all my dreams

(Verse 2)

It's time to refill and reapply

it's really tough but I'm getting by

Oh I'm free, free to be me

I gotta run I hope you'll understand

Need to get my feet in that sand

Where I'm free, free to be me

(Repeat Chorus)

(Music Break)

(Verse 3)

I've done my time and I'm growin' old

Need some place warm that's never cold

Where I'm free, free to be me

Wake every day to the sun and sand

Walk the beach with you hand in hand

Where we're free, yeah where we're free

(Repeat Chorus)

Sailin' out into the bay, don't feel like doin' a damn thing today

 

SAIL AWAY WITH ME

(Verse 1)

I dream, of you all the time

Your lips remind me, of a fine Rose wine

And your eyes, as blue as the sea

You stole my heart, and you threw away the key

(Chorus)

Let's leave this world behind, and get lost in ourselves

Making memories of you and I, that fill up our shelves

Alone, no we'll never be

Come sail darlin', sail away with me

(Verse 2)

Through storms, we sail to the sun

You stole my heart and we'll always be one

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)

We'll live each day as if it's our last

We'll live for the moment, but treasure our past

(Musical Break)

(Repeat Chorus, repeat last line 3x)

 

DEAR RICK

(Intro)

Dear Rick, why did you go?

You left our hearts with a mighty big hole

I wonder if you knew, we loved you so

And I know, you want us to be strong

Don't want to get down with a sad sad song

So I promise my friend I'm going to move this along

(Verse 1)

Once a year, dead of winter, you bust your ass for your friends

Clearing snow, clearing space, crank up the heat so the fun never ends

Party For The Hardy, true to it's name, ten below, snow or even rain

Dear Rick, this one's for you

(Verse 2)

Elevator ridin' with a stolen chair, your costumes were always cool

Beach-ball dodge ball with unsuspecting riders, after hours sneak into the pool

Turnin' heads with your urinal cup, walkin' from the bathroom just drinkin' it up

Dear Rick, this one's for you

(Chorus)

You're the devil on our shoulders, the angel by our side

You're there when we need you

Watching over us and dancing on the stars, never forget

"We flip burgers not cars"

We'll raise a glass to toast your white ass, pictures we have a few

Dear Rick, this one's for you

(Verse 3)

Speaking of burgers, one of your joys, cookin' for SOMA athletes

Cranking out minis on your George Foreman grill, late night convention hotel room treats

You always give and you never take, no one can call you fickle

"Hey Todd, wanna try my pickle?"

(Repeat Chorus)

(Musical (Break)

(Verse 4)

The love of your life, your best friend your wife, Mele and Bailey, they're all just fine

We got your back and they'll never lack, it's a hell of a Parrot Head support line

You made your mark, got scars on our heart, but your part of God's greater plan

He needs a guy like you to lead his Parrot Head clan

(Repeat Chorus, repeat last line 3x)

 

LOUIE'S BACKYARD

(Verse 1)

It's good to be back in Key West, escaping life for awhile

So much to do, so much to see, gives me that Cheshire Cat smile

But I need to slow down and decompress, pace the day into the night

One more stop, one more bar, will surely set things right

(Chorus)

Late at night, you will find me

Far away from Duval

Warm gentle breeze and soft-crashing waves

Takes you away from it all

Kickin' back with friends and a drink

Oh those stories of the day

Chillin' on the deck of Louie's Backyard

Where the world just melts away

(Verse 2)

Soft glow streams from the bar, music drifts on the wind

Conversations, fill the air, just how a perfect day ends

And that's why

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)

Ten Speed had the notion, a drink every day by the ocean

Belly full of Kahlua and cream, lays on Dog Beach and dreams

(Verse 3)

The party is almost over, back to the real world I'll go

This Duval crawl must come to an end, there's one more stop so let's go

(Final Chorus)

Last night, and you will find me

Far away from Duval

Warm gentle breeze and soft-crashing waves

Takes you away from it all

Kickin' back with friends and a drink

Oh those stories of the day

Chillin' on the deck of Louie's Backyard

Where the world just melts away

Chillin' on the deck of Louie's Backyard

Where the world just melts away
