Last Post of the Night – Jimmy Buffett – Love and Luck

This is going to be a fairly quick post, but I haven’t done a “last post of the day” in a while and some people might have the mistaken notion that I’ve lost some of the Buffett in my life.  Not true :D !

The first time I heard “Love and Luck” was on the “Buffett Live – Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays” album.  It’s a little different than the studio version naturally, but they’re both good :)

“Zouk” is a popular form of music from the French Antilles, the kind that makes you dance without knowing what the singer is saying. Since the songs are in patois French, this helps. I once received a request for permission to write new lyrics to the melody of Margaritaville by a very famous European singer and thought it was great and was interested to hear their interpretation. Well this is the melody to a song called “kole Sere,” written by my friend Joecely Beroard, the lead singer for a great Zouk band named Kaasav. The lyrics are mine and I hope that they like the way I interpret their music. This was the first song ever recorded at Shrimp Boat Sound in Key West and Steve Winwood is the guest organist. I thank him for taking time out from his fishing trip.

After a four day weekend, I’m doing better than I was on Friday and I know that I’ve only got a three day work week ahead of me.  I can do this!  Still, it’s back to the trenches to fight it out with the forces of all that break technology and not the least stressful or most fun thing on the planet by a long shot.  Therefore, I try to find something to keep me on more of an even keel.  This song will do nicely – it’s got a good beat, a nice melody, and it’s catchy enough to get stuck in my head which is exactly what I need :wink:

So here’s the lyrics from Buffettworld.com:

Better days are in the cards I feel
Feel it in the changin’ wind
I feel it when I fly
So talk to me I’ll listen to your story
I’ve been around enough to know
That there’s more than meets the eye

Everybody needs a little good luck charm
A little gris gris keeps you safe from harm
Rub yours on me, and I’ll rub mine on you
Luckiest couple on the avenue

With a little love and luck
You will get by
With a little love and luck
We’ll take the sky
In this megalo-modern world
You’ve got to try
Try a little love and luck
And you’ll get by

Mysteries don’t ever try to solve them
We’re just players in a game
And no one’s keeping score
So have your fun
Go ahead and tell your story
Find yourself a lover
Who will glue you to the floor

Everybody needs a little good luck charm
A little gris gris keeps you safe from harm
Rub yours on me, and I’ll rub mine on you
Luckiest couple on the avenue

With a little love and luck
You will get by
With a little love and luck
We’ll take the sky
In this megalo-modern world
We’ve got to try
Try a little love and luck
And you’ll get by

Kole sere kole sere
Kole sere kole sere
Kole sere kole sere
Kole sere kole sere

With a little love and luck
You will get by
With a little love and luck
We’ll take the sky
In this megalo-modern world
You’ve got to try
Try a little love and luck
And you’ll get by

Kole sere, kole sere
Kole sere, kole sere
Kole sere, kole sere
Kole sere, kole sere

With a little love and luck
You will get by
With a little love and luck
We’ll take the sky
Love and luck
We will get by

I even found the studio version of the song on YouTube for everyone to kick back, listen, relax, and enjoy life with 8)

Yeah, it’s one of my favorite Buffett songs :)  Of course, it helps that I think of quite a few good friends anytime I hear it :wink:

Have a fantastic day everyone :mrgreen:
