The Lyrics

Jimmy dedicated this song to the sharks of the deep. I think sharks are way too violent, so my version is dedicated to the kindler, gentler, intelligent dolphins that I love so much. The 'place' that I speak of is the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys, because if I could, I would spend weeks, or maybe even months, there.
I come down from Indiana
It takes me no time to even think
What I'm gonna do in Florida
The sunsets are glowin' pink
You know that I'll be near the ocean
I'm going there for dolphin fun
We'll hang out a day and a half
In the big, warm Florida sun

Oh, I know that I'm crazy about 'em
Oh, I know that it just feels right
There's dolphins to my left, they're on my right
But to me, they're an awesome sight
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
There's dolphins to my left, they're on my right
But to me, absolute delight

There is nuthin' I'd rather do now
Than play with my gray friends
It will not matter what we may do or when
Anything till our time ends
Enjoyment always runs right through me
It just goes through my veins
These times that I share, I just don't care
Even during torrential rains

Oh, I know that I'm loopy about 'em
Oh, I know that it just feels right
There's dolphins to my left, they're on my right
But to me, absolute delight

Back home, Indiana
Makes me feel all choked up inside
Feelin' like I want to cry now
Miss seeing the water's tide
But I know that the times ain't over
'Cause the place will still be there
Soon I will see those gray fins again
And I'll go back to where lovers dare

Oh, I know that I'm crazy about 'em
And I know that it just feels right
There's dolphins to the left, they're on my right
But to me, they're an awesome sight
There's dolphins to the left, they're on my right
But to me, absolute delight

Good to see another parody of this song. I wrote the first one titled Nurses which is part of my Buffett parody series One Particular Hospital
