Lyrics of Margaritaville

Nibbling on sponge cake, watching the sun bake,
All of those tourists covered with oil,
Strumming my six string, on my front porch swing,
Smell those shrimp, they're beginning to boil.

Mordiscando-ló, observando a cozer sol,
Todos os turistas cobertos com óleo,
Dedilhando meu violão, no meu balanço da varanda,
Cheirar os camarões, eles estão começando a ferver.

Wasting away again in Margaritaville,
Searching for my last shaker of salt,
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know it's nobody's fault.

Desperdiçando novamente em Margaritaville,
Procurando pelo meu passado agitador de sal,
Algumas pessoas afirmam que há uma mulher a culpa,
Mas eu sei que é culpa de ninguém.

Don't know the reason that I stayed here all season,
With 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.

Não sei a razão que eu fiquei aqui toda a temporada,
Sem nada para mostrar, mas essa tatuagem nova,
Mas é uma beleza real, uma gracinha mexicana,
Como ele chegou aqui eu não tenho a menor idéia.



Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home,
But there's booze in the blender,
And soon it will render,
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

Cortar o meu calcanhar, teve de cruzeiro de volta para casa,
Mas há álcool no liquidificador,
E logo ele vai render,
Essa mistura congelada que ajuda a me pendurar.



Yes, some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
And I know it's my own damn fault.

Sim, algumas pessoas afirmam que há uma mulher a culpa,
E eu sei que a culpa é minha própria maldição.
