Jimmy Buffett

                        Nautical Wheelers who call themselves sailors
   play fiddle tunes under the stars. 
   Petti-coats rustle, working shoes scuffle,
   hustle on down to the bars.
   Where the juke-box is blastin' and the liquor is flowin'
   an occasional bottle of wine. 
    That's 'cause everyone here is just more than contented
    to be living and dying in three quarter time.
       And it's dance with me, dance with me Nautical Wheelers,
       take me to stars that you know. 
       Come on and dance with me, dance with me Nautical Wheelers,
       I want so badly to go.
2. Well, the left foot it'll follow
where the right foot has travelled,
down to the sidewalks unglued.
And into the street of my city so neat,
where nobody cares what you do.
And Sonna's just grinnin' and Phil is ecstatic
and Mason has jumped in the sea.
And I'm hangin' on to a line from my sailboat
     Oh, Nautical Wheelers save me.
(repeat Chorus)
3. Well the sunrise will bring on
the sleep that's escaped us
and everyone's off to their beds.
There'll be huggin' and squeezin'
a little pleazin' and teasin'
and rubbin' of each other's heads.
So won't you dream on comrades, seems nothin' escapes you,
nothin', no reason, nor rhyme.
That's 'cause everyone here is just more than contented
to be living and dying in three quarter time.
(repeat chorus and fade)
