Last Man Standing
Written by: Mac McAnally, Jimmy Buffett
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Far Side Of The World (2002)

Lyrics:
If they gave Olympic medals for running all-night long
I would have won them all until I turned pro
I’ve got miles of dedication
And a natural inclination
For a childhood game i just could not outgrow

(Everybody)
I want to be the last man standing
People crashin’ on the sofas and passed out
on the floor
But the Last man standing
was sayin’ bring on a little bit more

When you stop and think about
Life is still just high school
You make the same mistakes you did when you were young
Contending for the ladies’ favors
Testing every single flavor
While hopelessly trying not scald your tongue

I wanna be the last man standing
Bring me the hot sauce
Bring me a beer
Gonna be the last man standing
But where do we go from here?
Gonna be the last man standing
People crashin’ on the sofas and passed out
on the floor
But the Last man standing
was sayin’ bring on a little bit more

I might as well admit it
There’s been a time or two
When I contemplate retirement for a while
But a hundred years from now
They’ll still be asking how
As they gaze upon on my taxidermic smile

Want to be the last man standing
Got the devil at the crossroads, wolf at the door
But the last man standing
Is singin’ bring on a little bit more

They’re gonna see the last man standing
Still got a fun ticket in my hand
Gonna be the last man standing
Takin off before I land
