Sunshine State Of Mind
Mercury’s falling, snowflakes are falling
Roads are getting icy and slick
Anyone who says they love winter weather
Is full of their own bullshit
Me, I’m not hanging ‘round, I’m getting out of town
Gonna fly south with the geese
Enjoy your ice fishing and all your bitching
While i take a walk on the beach

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
I’ll be floating away on manatee bay
Leaving the world behind
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
I’m in a sunshine state of mind

Now, what is this busy-ness, working my life to death
Ninety-five hours-a-week
With too much month at the end of the money
There’s not enough rum in my drink
My bones are achin’ to get half-naked
And plant my butt square in the sand
Hang up the phone i hear paradise calling,
“come to vacation land!”

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
I’ll be watching the waves, laid up in the shade
Tequila, salt, and lime
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
I’m in a sunshine state of mind

So, baby let’s build a sandcastle
Where we can make love by the sea
Adios to cell phones and clocks
It’s time to be free

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
We’ll be watching the boats, our hearts will be floating
On a tropical dream out of time
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Bye, bye, bye, bye
I’m in a sunshine state of mind
