Stranded on a Sandbar lyrics

Stranded on a sandbar
By: jimmy buffett
1979
I enjoy this life as a jester
Seems to keep me movin' around
Like the wind that blows
Tide that flows
Have my ups and downs

All a part of some strange plan I'm sure
Start a new chapter each day
Honey, love gets lost, time gets tossed
'cause we've both got our own different ways

Chorus:
I feel like I'm stranded on a sandbar
Stuck in my tracks like a street car
Playin' it for all that it's worth
I'm just payin' for my sins on earth

Now I used to go crazy for days at a time
Now I'm takin' my time with my days
Haven't found the answers like some that I know
I'm just stuck in a fairly nice maze

Climb to the top of the island tonight
Sit beneath the cashew tree
I want to count the stars, lights on the cars
That are shinin' up and down on me

Chorus:
I feel like I'm stranded on a sandbar
Baby I'm stuck in my tracks like a street car
Playin' it for all that it's worth
I'm just payin' for my sins on earth

Chorus:
I feel like I'm stranded on a sandbar
Sugar I'm stuck in my tracks like a street car
Playin' it for all that it's worth
I'm just payin' for my sins on earth

Coda:
I enjoy this life as a jester
Seems to keep me movin' around
