Lyrics of Margaritaville

Nibbling on sponge cake, watching the sun bake,
All of those tourists covered with oil,
Strumming my six string, on my front porch swing,
Smell those shrimp, they're beginning to boil.

Mordisqueando el bizcocho, mirando el horno solar,
Todos los turistas cubierto de aceite,
Rasgando mis seis cuerdas, en mi swing porche,
Olor los camarones, que están empezando a hervir.

Wasting away again in Margaritaville,
Searching for my last shaker of salt,
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know it's nobody's fault.

Atrofia de nuevo en Margaritaville,
En busca de mi coctelera pasado de sal,
Algunas personas afirman que hay una mujer a quien culpar,
Pero sé que es culpa de nadie.

Don't know the reason that I stayed here all season,
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo,
But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie,
How it got here I haven't a clue.

No sé la razón por la que me quedé aquí toda la temporada,
Sin nada que mostrar, pero este tatuaje nuevo,
Pero es una verdadera belleza, una chica mexicana,
¿Cómo llegué aquí no tienen ni idea.



Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home,
But there's booze in the blender,
And soon it will render,
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

Corte el talón, tuvo que volver a casa de crucero,
Pero no hay alcohol en la licuadora,
Y pronto lo hará,
Esa mezcla congelada que me ayuda a salir adelante.



Yes, some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
And I know it's my own damn fault.

Sí, algunas personas afirman que hay una mujer a quien culpar,
Y sé que es mi maldita culpa.
