D (6)

Nibblin’ on sponge cake
Watchin’ the sun bake

All of those tourists covered with oil
Strummin’ my six-string
On my front porch swing

Smell those shrimp they’re beginnin’ to boil

I stayed here all season

Nothin’ to show but this brand new tattoo
But it’s a real beauty
A Mexican cutie

How it got here I haven’t a clue

I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop-top

Cut my heel had to cruise on back home
But there’s booze in the blender
And soon it will render

That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
