You Call It Joggin’
Written by: Loudermilk (John?)
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Beach House on the Moon (1999)

Lyrics:
You call it joggin’ , I call it runnin’ around
You say you’re losing weight but you ain’t lost a pound.
While you’re out joggin’ with your other friends,
I’m home feeding the kids again.
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.

You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around,
It’s the best release you say you’ve ever found.
Your friends all smile and agree
Yeah, you were runnin’ around on me.
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.

Somebody said they saw you down at the corner
Getting out of some strangers car.
You come home after runnin’ for hours
Ain’t even breathing hard.
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.

The soles of your runnin’ shoes they ain’t wearing down.
While you’re out runnin’ up and down the streets
I’m tryin’ to get the kids to sleep.
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.

You’ve been out since five p.m.
It’s now thirty minutes past ten.
You blow in all out of breath,
Honey, you’ve been drinking gin again?

You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.
Draggin’ that silly old towel all over town.
You come home grinning with your hair all wet,
Smelling like shampoo instead of sweat.
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around
Oh yeah,
You call it joggin’, I call it runnin’ around.
