“Some Beach” Lyrics 

Driving down the interstate
Running thirty minutes late
Singing Margaritaville and minding my own
Some foreign car drivin’ dude with a road rage attitude
Pulled up beside me talking on his cell phone
He started yelling at me like I did something wrong
He flipped me the bird an’ then he was gone
Some beach
There’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair
Palm trees are growing and warm breezes blowing
I picture myself right there
On some beach, somewhere
I circled the parking lot trying to find a spot
Just big enough I could park my old truck
A man with a big cigar was getting into his car
I stopped and I waited for him to back up
But from out of no where a Mercedes Benz
Came cruisin’ up and whipped right in
Some beach
There’s no where to go when you got all day to get there
There’s cold margaritas and hot Senoritas smiling with long dark hair
On some beach
I sat in that waiting room
It seemed like all afternoon
The nurse finally said doc’s ready for you
You’re not gonna feel a thing we’ll give you some Novocaine
That tooth will be fine in a minute or two
Then he stuck that needle down deep in my gum
And he started drilling before I was numb
Some beach
There’s a beautiful sunset burning up the atmosphere
There’s music and dancing and lovers romancing
In the salty evenin’ air
On some beach
On some beach, somewhere
