Another Song From The Soundtrack Of My Life – Jimmy Buffett – Landfall

I’ve posted lots of Buffett stuff here in the past.  This one’s one of those tunes I turn to in times when work and life in general start getting to be a bit much.  Today’s one of those days.

Aside from sleeping through my alarms (yes, both of them), there’s been a few customers who’ve taken a toll on my mental condition. Could the long run of days working without days off be part of it? Yeah, it’s a possibility.

From Buffettworld.com:

Song: Landfall
Album:Changes In Latitudes, Changes In Attitudes

Now what would they do if I just sailed away
Who the hell really compelled me to leave today
Runnin’ low on stories of what made it a ball
What would they do if made no landfall

I lived half my life in eight by five room
Just cruisin’ to the sound of the big diesel boom
It’s not close quarters that would make me snap
It’s just dealing with the daily unadulterated crap

Sail away for a month at a time
Sail away I’ve got to recharge mind
Then you’ll find me back at it again

Oh I love the smell of fresh snapper fried lite
What you say pouilly fuisse could round out the night
The mid morning watch is the best time to look
Oh what would they do if I wrote the big book

`Cause I’ve seen incredible things in my year
Someday’s were laughter, others were tears
If I had it all to do over again
I’d just get myself drunk and I’d jump right back in

Sail away, that’s the way I survive
Sail away, that’s just no shuck and jive
It just makes my whole life come alive

The wind whistled threw the cool rigging at night
Crazy crowds boogie to the sound and the lights
Bums down in Queros havin’ a ball
What would he do on another landfall
What would they do if I made no landfall
Oh what would they do if I flew to Nepal
What would I do if I met Lucille Ball
Tryin’ to make a little sense of it all
Just tryin’ to make a little sense of it all

What I wouldn’t give for about a month on a sailboat with a few tropical ports of call, some good lookin’ girls in bikinis on the beach, and some boat drinks with little umbrellas right now 8)

    Probably your customers who are having problems are feeling like the people around here. This winter is wearing us out!!

    There’s nothing you do about it, but the constant cold and snow and bad weather, bad roads, schools opening late or not at all, which causes daycare problems — and you can’t miss work, you’ve got to be there. And then you get that $200 electric bill, which doesn’t exactly help.

    We are not used to this. And it’s making people tired and cranky.
