[Verse 1 - Jimmy Buffet]
Nibbling on sponge cake
Watching the sun bake
All of those tourists covered in oil
Strumming my six-string
On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp, hey they're beginning to boil

[Hook - Jimmy Buffet]
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
But I know it's nobody's fault


[Verse 2 - Jimmy Buffet]
I don't know the reason
I stayed here all season
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


[Hook - Jimmy Buffet]
Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame
Now I think, hell, it could be my fault


[Verse 3 - Jimmy Buffet]
I blew out my flip-flop
Stepped on a pop top

Broke my leg twice I had to limp on back home
But there's booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on
Hang on

[Hook - Jimmy Buffet]
Wastin’ away again in margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
But I know it’s my own damn fault
Yes and some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
And I know it’s my own damn fault
