King Of Somewhere Hot

by Jimmy Buffett, Ralph MacDonald, William Salter, and Robert Greenidge

from the album Hot Water



Lyrics

I’ve traveled all around the world
And there are places that still stand out to me
But nowhere else can quite compare
To my island in the sea

My personal utopia
A place to run to Where I can hide away
Where I can truly reign supreme
Somewhere fresh and clean
Where a man can dream

I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
I’m the king, like every man should be
I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
Where the music in my soul
Makes me start to lose control
I could melt right on the spot
I’m king of somewhere hot

Now you just rent yourself a tile
And dance the night away Just like the locals do
A million miles from Robin Leach
Life is just a beach So far out of reach

I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
I’m the king, like every man should be
I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
Where the music in my soul
Makes me start to lose control
I could melt right on the spot
I’m king of somewhere hot

Someday I hope to find my queen
I know she’ll come my way
I’ll give her all my love
It’s not a complicated thing
Just a place where I can swing
Where a man can be a king

I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
I’m the king like every man should be
I’m the king, king of somewhere hot
O I don’t care how hard you look
You won’t find me in the book
I could melt right on the spot
I’m the king of somewhere hot

Jimmy’s Note:

Robert Greenidge and Ralph MacDonald finally got me to Trindad and when I heard the Desperados playing my song up on Laventhill I felt like a King and it was Hot.
