Nibblin on sponge cake 
Watchin the sun bake 
All of those tourists covered with oil 
Strummin my six-string 
On my front porch swing 
Smell those shrimp theyre beginnin to boil 
 
Chorus: 
Wastin away again in margaritaville 
Searching for my lost shaker of salt 
Some people claim that theres a woman to blame 
But I know its nobodys fault 
 
I dont know the reason 
I stayed here all season 
Nothin to show but this brand new tattoo 
But its a real beauty 
A mexican cutie 
How it got here I havent a clue 
 
Chorus: 
Wastin away again in margaritaville 
Searchin for my lost shaker of salt 
Some people claim that theres a woman to blame 
Now I think 
Hell, it could be my fault 
 
I blew out my flip-flop 
Stepped on a pop-top 
Cut my heel had to cruise on back home 
But theres booze in the blender 
And soon it will render 
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on 
 
Wastin away again in margaritaville 
Searching for my lost shaker of salt 
Some people claim that theres a woman to blame 
But I know its my own damn fault 
Yes and some people claim that theres a woman to blame 
And I know its my own damn fault
