Song Description

A song about meeting friends in a tropical setting

Story Behind the Song

A while back, my Parrot Head friend, Steve Valentini and I were chatting through Facebook, and he ended our online conversation with a post about getting together one day soon, in a place with palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks . . . Well, with me being someone that can't let a great song title get away, that got me going, and this song was born . . .

Lyrics

Palm Trees, Nice Weather And A Couple Of Drinks

I was chatting with a friend of mine,
Catching up while we were both online,
We hadn't gotten together in a couple of years,
Discussing jobs and our families,
When we decided that him and me,
Needed to rendezvous and have ourselves a few beers

We started thinking about meeting places,
Somewhere warm with familiar faces,
With tiki bars and no sign of a single ice rink,
He said where didn't really matter,
As long as the place we chose to gather,
Has palm tree, nice weather and a couple of drinks

(chorus)
We want, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks,
A place that don't mind a few juvenile hi-jinks
Where conch fritters are fried in beer batter,
And what you're wearing doesn't really matter,
Give us, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks.

Instrumental Solo

(chorus 2)
We want, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks,
Our golf clubs and 18 holes on some tropical links,
Where steamed shrimp beats fried in beer batter,
And walking barefoot don't really matter,
We want, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks.

We want, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks.

Give us, palm trees, nice weather and a couple of drinks.
