Christmas in the Caribbean – J. Buffett Knows the Way!

Christmas in the Caribbean. Lots of presents everywhere. We don’t live in a hurry. Send away for mistletoe. It’s Christmas in the Caribbean. Got everything but snow. -Jimmy Buffett

Call me crazy, but I think steel drums and Christmas go together like sand and sun. I love Jimmy Buffett’s Christmas album “Christmas Island“. It does the mind, body and soul good.

A lot of people choose to trade in the coats and snow for SPF 30 and blue ocean lagoons during the holidays. Pretty damn good idea right? A couple people on the RumShopRyan Facebook page have let me know that they will be traveling to the Caribbean for their Christmas vacation. While I probably can’t fit into their luggage I found myself wanting to tag along. Next year maybe the year I pass on the bone chilling trip to Kansas City for a destination that has ice in tropical boat drinks instead of all over the ground.  If you have wishes and dreams of spending your Christmas in the Caribbean let our friend Mr. Buffett here show you they way.

Christmas in the Caribbean Lyrics

It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Snowbirds fill the air
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Lots of presents everywhere
We don’t live in a hurry
Send away for mistletoe
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow

Lights are blowing in the palm trees
Stockings hanging from the mast
Santa riding on a dolphin
Don’t you want to make it
Don’t you want to make it last

Chorus:
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Snowbirds fill the air
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Lots of presents everywhere
We don’t live in a hurry
Send away for mistletoe
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Snow?

Suntanned children sleeping
Hoping Santa will come true
Christmas morning marlin leaping
Oh it’s papa’s birthday
Mister Buffett’s birthday too!

Chorus:
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Snowbirds fill the air
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Good feelings everywhere
We don’t live in a hurry
Send away for mistletoe
It’s Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow

Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow
Christmas in the Caribbean
Got everything but snow

    Did I ever mention my mom dated Jimmy for a year? It was in the early 70s in Nashville, and she dumped him to move to Europe as she said “he’d never amount to anything” =)

    I think you did mention that to me in the Bahamas. Great story, does she ever wonder what if?
