My baby and me went to Panama for Valentine's Day
It'd been a rough year and we decided it was time to get away
Sandals, flip-flops, carry-ons, we were moving at the speed of light
A hammock and a virgin margarita would be just about right

We landed and we hooked up with a cabbie named Javier
He didn't speak English but my baby got some savoir-faire
'Cause she mucho bueno hablas espanol and you've never seen a prettier sight
Than a five foot three Italian Irish Cape Cod girl speaking Spanish in Panama City

To our nueve best amigo taxi driver on a Saturday night
No cell phones, no laptops, one bed
Hotel Parador, forty-four dollars
And a Jimmy Buffet book that my Mom just read

We took a puddle jumper to an island called Bocas del Toro
But by now a lotta gringos have bought it all up from all the locals
The very best meal we had was from a lady at a chicken stand
She was grilling and frying and minding her very own business

Internet cafe, that sucking screen
Here we go, just a peek and the next thing you know
We're right back up to maximum speed
It seems there was some kind of shooting back in the States

Dick Cheney went huntin' and his aim was not terribly great
It kinda makes you wonder 'bout the kind of things'll happen
When the you-know-what hits the fan
When you find out that the finger on the trigger of the rifle

Pointed anywhere he wants to in the whole entire world
Is the very same finger that he pulled when he hit his own man
One more night, let's really hit the town
It's Valentine's Day and I must say

I remember you in your wedding gown
John Prine, he won a Grammy, and oh boy, it's about time
A voice of reason in a world that has gone awry
But we're flying back home where you can say what you want

'Cause it's the good old U.S. of A.
And that's what me and my baby did
That's what me and my baby did
That's what me and my baby did, on Valentine's Day
