  • Everybody here ain't from here
    But we're here doin' our thing
    Lettin' go a little, little by little
    Sippin' on a frozen drink

    Tiki bars tik'n, pourin' all weekend
    Clouds ain't leakin' no rain
    Two pieces shakin', white caps a-breakin'
    We ain't feelin' no pain, it goes like

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    "Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Buffett song?"
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone

    Ice blue skies, shades on the eyes
    To tuck the bloodshot away
    Hair of the dog, shouldn't take long
    But who cares, we got all day
    Palm trees a-leanin', sunburn screamin'
    But we'll all be alright, after

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    "Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Marley song?"
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone

    We'll be gone

    Tiki bars tik'n, pourin' all weekend
    Clouds ain't leakin' no rain
    Two pieces shakin', white caps a-breakin'
    We ain't feelin' no pain, feelin' no pain
    It goes like

    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita, shot
    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Leave all your sorrow out here on the floatin' dock
    When that sun lays down, we'll be on our way
    One more barefoot round, one more last chance to say
    "Hey Señorita, don't you think we need
    A salt and a Chesney song?"
    One margarita, two margarita, three margarita
    We'll be gone

    We'll be gone

  • Jay from New YorkWho sings along with Luke in One Margarita? I love his deep voice!
  • Mccurry from Manitoba CanadaCopy write. One magareta was written by me nearly ten years ago. I only told it to one person. How is it that now others are profiting from my work! How do I confront this use of my unpublished work? If I had a nickle for everytime I have heard it played I would be debit free! How did it become credited to someone else!
