Jimmy Buffett

Jimmy Buffett - I Love The Now

By: Jimmy Buffett, Carrie Fisher

1986

It's the reason for livin'

But that's what I'm givin'

I don't need a history lesson

To tell me why

I mean I'm in no hurry

To hustle and scurry

There's so much to see

And life ain't gonna pass me by

Tomorrow's right around the corner

I'll get there somehow

But I'm stuck in the meantime

And I love the now

Chorus:

I love the now (all the faces and places)

I love the now (all the rats and the races)

It's the only place I've ever been

It's the only way that I know how

Don't talk about your superstitions

Don't talk about your cats meow

But don't talk about tomorrow tonight

I love the now

It's true we've got problems

How do we solve 'em

Better break out your thinkin' cap

And your old dunce cone

Searchin' for answers like interpretive dancers

She asks me for reasons

Then tells me to wait for the tone

The whole damn world's gone crazy

The moon is jumpin' over the cow

How can you help but

Not love the now

Chorus:

I love the now (all the ranting and raving)

I love the now (all the cussin' and craving)

It's the only mess I've ever seen

It's the only place where I know how

Don't talk about your futuristic

Don't talk about your "thee's" and "thou's"

Don't talk about tomorrow tonight

I love the now

(horn and harp instrumental)

Sittin' on 'G'

Waitin' on 'O'

I'm exactly where

I want to go

Chorus:

I love the now (all the pain and the pleasure)

I love the now (all the blood and the treasure)

It's the only circus that I know

It's the only ring where I'm allowed

Talk about a standing ovation

Everybody take a bow

But don't talk about tomorrow tonight

I love the now

But don't talk about tomorrow tonight

I love the now

No don't talk about tomorrow tonight

I love the now
