Want you put your ass in the sand and a cold beer in your hand? I thought you might. Zac Brown Band is a relatively new artist to the country/island music scene.  Their hit “Toes” is a great song that speaks to me and a lot of other escapism fans.  It takes it’s listeners to the islands, with rum soaked bars and bikini clad senoritas, how can you not get excited about that?

Below are the lyrics to “Toes”, what do they say to you?  Tell me if you like the song and think it’s unique or if you think this band is just riding the coattails of Buffett and Chesney.

Lyrics to Toes :
I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Well, the plane touched down just about 3 o’clock
And the city’s still on my mind
Bikinis and palm trees danced in my head
I was still in the baggage line
Concrete and cars are there own prison bars like this life I’m living in
But the plane brought me farther
I’m surrounded by water
And I’m not going back again

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Adios and vaya con dios
Yeah I’m leaving GA
And if it weren’t for tequila and pretty senoritas
I’d have no reason to stay
Adios and vaya con dios
Yeah I’m leaving GA
Gonna lay in the hot sun and roll a big fat one
And grab my guitar and play

Four days flew by like a drunk Friday nightas the summer drew to an end
They couldn’t believe that I just couldn’t leave
And I bid adieu to my friends
Because my bartender she’s from the islands
Her body’s been kissed by the sun
And coconut replaces the smell of the bar and I don’t know if its her or the rum

I got my toes in the water, ass in the sand
Not a worry in the world, a cold beer in my hand
Life is good today. Life is good today.

Adios and vaya con dios
A long way from the GA
Yes and all the muchachas they call me “big poppa”
when I throw pesos their way
Adios and vaya con dios
A long way from GA
Someone do me a favor and pour me some Jaeger
And I’ll grab my guitar and play

Adios and vaya con dios
Going home now to stay
The senoritas don’t care-o when there’s no dinero
I got no money to stay
Adios and vaya con dios
Going home now to stay

Put my ass in a lawn chair, Toes in the clay
Not a worry in the world a PBR on the way
Life is good today. Life is good today

What is your favorite verse?  Mine be far has to be…”Because my bartender she’s from the islands, Her body’s been kissed by the sun, And coconut replaces the smell of the bar and I don’t know if its her or the rum.”  That one has to be my favorite by far.  Sounds like a snippet of my life!

Cheers to the Salt Life.
