This morning a friend named Kayla showed me something brand new that she has. What is the difference between Kayla and Jimmy Buffett? 1. Hers is not a Mexican cutie. 2. Chances are she does have a clue as to how hers got there. 3. She probably has better reason to know hers is brand new.

Wasting away again in Mar-A-Lard-O-Ville.
Searching for his diet pills.
Some people say that McDonalds is to blame,
But he knows, it's his own damn fault.

Don't know the reason, stayed here all season
Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
but I don't. It's my own damned fault.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Why would you claim to blame a woman for getting wasted?
Submitted by: Celeste
"Cheeseburger In Paradise"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer
Why They're Nonsensical:
The pickle doesn't have to be "kosher" if eating a cheeseburger with it. A cheeseburger itself is not kosher - Orthodox Jewish People never eat meat and dairy together. Therefore, those who do consume cheeseburgers are not even eating a kosher meal at all; the pickle makes no difference.
