Jimmy Buffett My Barracuda Lyrics

My Barracuda
By: Jimmy Buffett, Michael Utley, Russell Kunkel, Steve Cropper
1988
Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. A sleeping bag under a bridge by a canal is still waterfront property.
Barracuda...

Well I saw this couple
Just the other day
Livin' under a bridge
In a homeless way
Like a million others
Without any plan
Livin' day to day
In the promised land
In this unforgivin' world there ain't no doubt
It'll chew you up and it'll spit you out
She calls him barracuda
My barracuda

She used to work in the circus
A real high-wire act
He was a lion tamer
Up until the attack
He came without instructions then he came unglued
And now he's just a monster in a human suit
She calls him barracuda
My barracuda

She still can't figure out what she's doin' down there
And she don't know if he loves her or not
He may be a barracuda
But he's the only lover she's got (oh-oooo)
Barracuda

(guitar solo)

She still can't figure out what she's doin' down there
And she don't know if he loves her or not
He may be a barracuda
But he's the only lover she's got (oh-oooo)
Barracuda, yeah

My barracuda
Not too many fish in the sea (barracuda)
Just my barracuda and me (my barracuda)
Swimmin' around (barracuda)
Check out the town (my barracuda)
He's such a barracuda, ooh, yeah (barracuda, yeah)
