The Ballad of Skip Wiley Lyrics

Artist: Jimmy Buffett
Album: Barometer Soup

He's a man on a mission
Wild as a ricochet
Picture if you can when the Everglades ran
From the Gulf Coast to Biscayne Bay

He's gonna give it back to the gators
Lock the tourists up in theme parks and zoos
He says join me for lunch at the reptile's brunch
Where the barometer soup is you

He's crazy and dangerous
But who else can you trust
He's the outlaw in all of us
The environmental terrorist

ou can mess with that mouse in Orlando
Jilt a tourist in St. Augustine
ou can shoplift all day at Blockbuster
But you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
No you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen

Spoken:
That's unthinkable in the state of Florida
What would the Chamber of Commerce say
This man is sick
eah

There were crimes of epic proportions
All part of Skip Wiley's crusade
Tourists were cackin'
And tourists were packin'
While he and Skink cooled there heels in the shade

Then came the citrus sensation
Welcome to the revolution he said
With a pirates persona
He snatched the gridiron madonna
And the day groovers called for his head

He's crazy and dangerous
But who else can you trust
He's the outlaw in all of us
The environmental terrorist

ou can mess with that mouse in Orlando
Jilt a tourist in St. Augustine
ou can rag on the Miami Dolphins
But you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
No you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
No, No you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen

Spoken:
Well Skip's caper it kinda backfired
Got the orange juice barons rather upset
In the light of bad moves these manhunts ensued
Skip easily slipped through the net
He was last seen atop of a mangrove
Perched like a wounded osprey
He was not meant to last
He belongs to the past
And I hope he gets there one day

He's crazy and dangerous
But who else can you trust
He's the outlaw in all of us
The environmental terrorist (terrorist)

ou can mess with that mouse in Orlando
Jilt a tourist in St. Augustine
ou can shoplift your days at Blockbuster
But you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
No you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
No you can't steal the Orange Bowl Queen
That's right
