Smart Woman (In A Real Short Skirt)
Written by: Jimmy Buffett and Marshall Chapman
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Hot Water (1988)

Jimmy’s Notes:
This song is about being in my 40’s in the 80’s. It seems I’m learning more than I’m forgetting.

Lyrics:
Bimbo limbo is where I've been
I know you know that it's wearing me thin
The times are changin' and it's about time
I'm rearranging all the guilt in my mind

Chorus
I'm looking for a smart woman
in a real short skirt
Smart woman who knows how to flirt
Smart woman got a mind of her own
Smart woman that'll take me homw
Take me home

I'm not your macho kind of guy
But I can be so when I'm feeling shy
Hey baby where'd you get your good looks
Ooh babe I want to carry your books

Chorus
I'm looking for a smart woman
in a real short skirt
Smart woman show knows how to flirt
Smart woman got a mind of her own
Smart woman that'll take me home
Take me home

Beauty and brains (beauty and brains)
Best of both worlds (best of both worlds)
Think I can change
If you'll be my be my be my girl

Chorus
I'm looking for a smart woman
in a real short skirt
Smart woman sho knows how to flirt
Smart woman got a mind of her own
Smart woman that'll take me home
Take me home
