Off to See the Lizard

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album Off To See The Lizard (1989).

I was raised by a maid who came from Martinique
She wore geckos around her neck and bracelets on her feet
A superstitious woman from the land of sugar cane
She'd sing the sun to bed and dance out in the rain
Dance out, dance out, dance out in the rain

She'd excite us with a legend that the Africans told
About a red iguana who turned lava into gold
We'd mount an expedition heading up into the bay
Superstitious children playing pirate for the day

Off to see the lizard
Off to see the lizard
Deja deja deja vu
Believe it and it will come true
Veja veja veja du
What works for me might work for you

Being rich and famous seems to have its ups and downs
But that's the price you pay for being troubadours and clowns
Godzilla's halitosis, it be vaporizing cars
Elvis up in Michigan or maybe out on Mars
Dance out, dance out, dance out to the stars

But living in the briar patch ain't what it appears
Sooner or later you've got to face your fears
I heard it from the parrot verbalizing in the tree
I heard it in the songline of the aborigine

Off to see the lizard
Off to see the lizard
Deja deja deja vu
Believe it and it will come true
Veja veja veja du
What works for me might work for you

Does it work for me?
Will it work for you?
If you believe it will
It will come true

I got problems with my brain underneath my curls
Problems with Lorraine and all the other girls
Love a wealthy woman and the pretty plane she flys
If you think this sounds confusing you should see it through my eyes
Dancing, dancing, dancing through my eyes

I'm turning off the waterfall, the tourists can go home
I feel it's time to travel, take time to write a poem
Time to seek some therapy, I'm going walkabout
Answers are the easy part, questions raise the doubt

Off to see the lizard
Off to see the lizard
Deja deja deja vu
Believe it and it will come true
Veja veja veja du
What works for me might work for you

Deja deja deja vu
Believe it and it will come true
Veja veja veja du
What works for me will work for you
