I Love The Now

by Jimmy Buffett and Carrie Fisher

from the album Floridays


Lyrics

It’s the reason for livin’
That’s what I’m givin’
I don’t need a history lesson
To tell my why

I mean I’m in no hurry
To hustle and scurry
There’s so much to see
And life ain’t gonna
Pass me by

Tomorrow’s right around the corner
I’ll get there somehow
But I’m stuck in the meantime
And I Love The Now

I Love The Now
(All the faces and places)
I Love The Now
(All the rats and the races)
It’s the only place I’ve ever been
It’s the only way that I know how
Don’t talk about your superstitions
Don’t talk about your cats meow
But don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now

It’s true we’ve got problems
How do we solve them
Better break out your thinkin’ cap
And your old dunce cone

Searchin for answers like interpretive dancers
She asks me for reasons
Then tells me to wait for the tone

The whole damn world’s gone crazy
The moon is jumping over the cow
How can you help
But not love the now

I Love The Now
(All the ranting and raving)
I Love The Now
(All the cussin’ and cravin’)
It’s the only mess I’ve ever seen
It’s the only place where I know how
Don’t talk about your futuristic
Don’t talk about your “thee’s” and “thou’s”
Don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now

Sittin’ on g
Waitin’ on o
I’m exactly where
I want to go

I Love The Now
(All the pain and the pleasure)
I love the now
(All the blood and the treasure)
It’s the only circus that I know
It’s the only ring where I’m allowed
Talk about a standing ovation
Everybody take a bow
But don’t talk about tomorrow tonight
I Love The Now
