Paradise, Alabama (Perdido)

Verse:  

Kokomo and Key Largo

ain’t got nothing on Perdido

A slice of Paradise in Alabama .

 

Yes Alabam’ south of Birmingham

That's where we gather to eat shrimp and jam.

We’ll party all night long at the "Florabama".

 

Chorus:

Paradise and a glass of ice. 

You don’t have to ask me twice.

If you find me face down in the sand

Put another one in my hand.

 

Verse:

My old lady left me for my best friend.

I knew I messed up when I let her kiss him.

It’s been about a month boy, I sure do miss him.

 

He called me up on my digital phone

He’d run her off and bought a motor home.

I said “Just drive it south ‘til you hit the water.”

 

Chorus:

Paradise and a glass of ice. You don’t have to ask me twice.

If you find me face down in the sand

Put another one in my hand. The other hand.

 

Instrumental: (EWI4000S used for all instruments)

 

Chorus:

Paradise and a glass of ice. 

You don’t have to ask me twice.

If you find me face down in the sand

Put another one in my hand. Thank you, man.

 

Verse:

A hundred degrees, Long Island Teas

There about to get the best of me.

I’m gonna shed my clothes if it gets much hotter.

 

A quarter to three this mermaid and me went skinny dippin’ in the deep blue sea.

I saw she had a tattoo where she shouldn’t oughter…

It said, “Bouncer’s Daughter” 

“Big Bouncer’s Daughter”

"6 foot 6, 337 pound Former Alabama Crimson Tide Lineman’s Only Daughter"
