The World Is What You Make It
Written by: Paul Brady
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: ()

Lyrics:
I knew this African called Hannibal
Rock it roll it send it down the avenue
Went out to see the Roman Empire fall
Uh huh? uh huh?
Two thousand elephants in gold chain-mail
Take it, shake it, make it what you wanna be
Them Roman legionnaires they hit the trail
Uh huh?
The world is what you make it
The world is what you make it
When Cleopatra ruled in Egypt’s land
Jump down, turn around, look at what the monkey did
She went to find herself a mighty man
Uh huh? uh huh?
In come Antonio from Italy
Haul it, ball it, drag it up the pyramid,
He never knew how hot a girl could be
Uh huh?
The world is what you make it
The world is what you make it baby
The world is what you make it
Don’t start to hit me with your “no can do”
Bluesin’, losin’, workin’ up an attitude
Clean up them windows let the sun shine through
Uh huh? uh huh?
There ain’t no happy time without no pain
heartbreak, new date, move on up the alleyway
Pick up them pieces hit the road again
Uh huh?
The world is what you make it
The world is what you make it baby
The world is what you make it
