Who Gets to Live Like This
Written by: Jimmy Buffett / Mac McAnally / Lukas Nelson
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

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

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
There are waves outside my window
There are airplanes in the sky
There are ships on the?horizon
And?a beach always?nearby
Fish tacos on the table, no?surfer can resist
How did I get this lucky?
Tell me who?gets?to?live like this

[Verse 2]
I?left my inhibitions
Receding?with the tide
Talking with the turtles
Lying side by side
Seeking wiser counsel on a girl I can’t resist
Pass the seaweed salad
Tell me who gets to live like this

[Chorus]
Singing for money, playin’ for fun
How did I wind up in this band on the run?
Wake it up, make it up, shake it up, take it up
There’s more ways than one
Jack of all trades, master of none

[Verse 3]
With fortune or without it
For paydays or for free
More latitudes than attitudes
More everyone and less me
Just knowing what is possible
Is the ring you don’t want to miss
I’m happy to inform you
That we get to live like this
That we all get to live this
Live like this

[Outro]
Hmm, get to live like this
Get to live like this
Get to live like this
Get to live like this
Get to live like this
