I Love The Now
Written by: Jimmy Buffett & Carrie Fisher
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Floridays (1986)

Lyrics:
It’s the reason for livin’
That’s what I’m givin’
I don’t need a history lesson
To tell my why

I mean I’m in no hurry
To hustle and scurry
There’s so much to see
And life ain’t gonna
Pass me by

Tomorrow’s right around the corner
I’ll get there somehow
But I’m stuck in meantime
And I Love The Now

CHORUS
I Love The Now
(All the faces and places)
I Love The Now
(All the rats and the races)
It’s the only place I’ve evr been
It’s the only way that I know how

Don’t talk about your superstitions
Don’t talk about your cats meow
But don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now

It’s true we’ve got problems
How do we solve them
Better break out your thinkin’cap
And your old dunce cone

Searchin for answers like interpretive dancers
She asks me for reasons
Then tells me to wait for the tone

The whole damn world’s gone crazy
The moon is jumping over the cow
How can you help
But not love the now

CHORUS
I Love The Now
(All the ranting and raving)
I Love The Now
(All the cussin’ and cravin’)
It’s the only mess I’ve ever seen
It’s the only place where I know how

Don’t talk about your futuristic
don’t talk about your “thee’s” and “thou’s”
Don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now

INSTRUMENTAL

Sittin’ on g
Waitin’ on o
I’m exactly where
I want to go

CHORUS
I Love The Now
(All the pain and the pleasure)
I love the now
(All the blood and the treasure)
It’s the only circus that I know
It’s the only ring where I’m allowed

Talk about a standing ovation
Everybody take a bow
But don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now
