Current Mood: anxious
Current Music: "Train to Dixieland", -JB
Nope. Though Buffett didn't write it.
Actually, he's not allowed to perform it anymore. The guy who wrote it died, and Buffett recorded it, and the guy's son took legal action based on copyright laws to stop Buffett from performing it.
Instead, when people request "God's Own Drunk", he sings something called "The Lawyer and the Asshole"
This lawyer, and this asshole
Out in california
Told me I can't play
"God's Own Drunk" for you no more.
I hate bein' told
What I can't and can't do
So here's a little message
So I can even up the score.
Kiss my ass, Mister Greedy
Somethin' here is wrong.
You want all that money,
and you never wrote the song.
I'll bet your poor daddy's
rollin' over in the ground
So I'll just sing my own good tunes
they still get me around.
Kiss my ass, kiss my ass, kiss my ass.
However, I suggest that those attending Summerland don't look up the words, and that'll ruin all the fun that the piece is. :)
