I just come down for the weekend, runnin' from the ice and snow
Where the tropic sun comes peekin', 'cross the Gulf of Mexico
The sunshine that I'd been seekin', I found where the warm winds blow
Just come down for the weekend...25 years ago

Now I'm sittin' in these salty jeans, eatin' plantains and me rice and beans
Drinkin' rum and singin' island songs, just an old tourist who stayed too long
Be warnin' all you folks tonight, you can have your fun but don't ya miss your flight
If you do then you just might...turn out to be...actin' just like me

Well I still got me round trip ticket...keep it just over my bed
Folded to plug that old hole in me roof and keep the rain off of me head
I ain't returnin' no phone calls and I ain't acceptin' no mail
Be singin' and a callin' out to the dolphins, a grouper and a yellow tail

So I'm sittin' in these salty jeans, eatin' plantains and me rice and beans
Drinkin' rum and singin' island songs, just an old tourist who stayed too long
I'm warnin' all you folks tonight, you can have your fun but don't ya miss your flight
If you do then you just might...turn out to be...actin' just like me

See I just come down for the weekend, runnin' from the ice and snow
Where the tropic sun comes peekin' out across the Gulf of Mexico
And the sunshine that I'd been seekin', I found where the warm winds blow
Just come down for the weekend...25 years ago
Yes, I just come down for the weekend...and that's 25 years ago
