"Grapefruit - Juicy Fruit" as written by and Jimmy Buffett....
Grapefruit
A bathin' suit
Chew a little Juicy Fruit
Wash away the night

Drive in
You guzzle gin
Commit a little mortal sin
It's good for the soul

And oh it gets so damn lonely
When you're on a plane alone
And if I had the money, honey
I'd strap you in beside me
And never ever leave you
Leave you at home all alone and cryin'

Ten speed
No need
My pickup gets me where I please
Chuggin' down the street

But I'll be leavin'
In a little while
So close your eyes and I'll
I'll be back real soon

"Ah, take it Reefers"
"Ladies choice, Everybody dance"
"Here we go"

Yes and if I had that money, honey
I'd strap you in beside me (in your strapless)
And never ever leave you
Leave you at home all alone and cryin'

Grapefruit
A bathin' suit
You chew a little Juicy Fruit
Wash away the night
Yeah you chew a little Juicy Fruit
It's good for ya soul

    General CommentIt's a song about living the life of being in a band/musician/rockstar. Possibly cheating with a groupie while your out on the road and making excuses to your girlfriend/wife. Lying to her in a sense, "It's so lonley without you, but I can't afford for you to come with me.." when obviously the person (be it Buffett or a fictional character) is making enough money that he can now fly from gig to gig and have some fun after each show. He visits home on breaks and repeats the cycle when the tour starts again. I would imagine he's chilling at the hotel pool/beach thinking about the night before eating Grapefruit to stay skinny, chewing juicy fruit to "wash away the night". Which may be symbolic for washing away his sins.
