Down at the Lah De Dah
Written by: Paul Brady / Jimmy Buffett / Ralph Murphy
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Life On the Flip Side (2020)

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
On a patch of sand
Where the warm wind blows
Not a TV set, not a radio
Just an old guitar when the sun sinks low
Down at the Lah De Dah
When the stars come out
It’s the place to be
If you’re all alone needing company
It’s a lover’s bar where the fun is free
Down at the Lah De Dah

[Chorus]
Down at the Lah De Dah
There’s a perfect margarita in a Mason jar
At the end of the world in a sea of dreams
Where the ocean smiles and the seagulls scream
We all know just how lucky we are
Down at the la, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
Down at the Lah De Dah
Take it, boys

[Verse 2]
When you’re back at work
At your nine to five
And it’s pourin’ rain on your morning drive
You’ll remember when you were last alive
Down at the Lah De Dah

[Chorus]
Down at the Lah De Dah
There’s a perfect margarita in a Mason jar
At the end of the world in a sea of dreams
Where the ocean smiles and the seagulls scream
We all know just how lucky we are
Down at the la, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
Down at the Lah De Dah
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
Down at the Lah De Dah

[Verse 3]
When the band strikes up
And the sun is down
The Pirate King buys another round
And the rumors fly mermaids are in town
Down at the Lah De Dah
(Oh, I think I see some Doylies in here tonight)

[Chorus]
Down at the la, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la
Down at the Lah De Dah
Cha, cha, cha
