Boat Drinks

The last few days have been quiet here on the tundra. While the lower 48 has been hit with below zero weather we have been a balmy 28 degrees! A bit of cabin fever setting in. All of us are a bit on edge and itching for something to happen. It really makes you think about all of those other people who traveled away from family onto the prairie, or tundra. Those long, cold dark winters that lasted for years. So in honor of those up here in the dark, those of you suffering in airports, and those of you experiencing winter down south...

We have been singing a lot of Jimmy Buffet lately. Sing it with us won't you?

Boat drinks
Boys in the band ordered boat drinks
Visitors scored on the home rink
Everything seems to be wrong

Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap air fare
I gotta to fly to saint somewhere
Im close to bodily harm

Twenty degrees and the hockey games on
Nobody cares they are way too far gone
Screamin boat drinks, something to keep em all warm

This mornin, I shot six holes in my freezer
I think I got cabin fever
Somebody sound the alarm

Id like to go where the pace of lifes slow
Could you beam me somewhere mr. scott?
Any ol place here on earth or in space
You pick the century and Ill pick the spot
Oh I know, (I know)
I should be leaving this climate
I got a verse but cant rhyme it
I gotta go where its warm

Boat drinks
Waitress I need two more boat drinks
Then Im headin south fore my dream shrinks

I gotta go where its warm (I gotta go where its warm)
I gotta go where its warm (I gotta go where its warm)
I gotta go where its warm!
