Overkill Lyrics - Jimmy Buffett

Review The Song (1)



[transcribed by Bryan J]
Overkill
By: Jimmy Buffett
1996
Legal problems gettin' thick and hazy
Look at the people gettin' rich and crazy
Locked up in mansions on the top of the hill
Someone needs to tell them 'bout overkill

Overkill, overkill
Such a megalo modern problematic ill
Climb too fast and shove too hard
You'll be pushin' up the daisies in the old boneyard

Ah uh
Ah UH
Ah uh
Ah UH

I went to find the truth in the Himalayas
Bundled up half-frozen munchin' Milky Way-uhs
Found a shaman in a diaper with a poppy pot
When I asked if he was cold he said "I just think hot"

Overkill, overkill
Such a megalo modern problematic ill
Climb too fast and shove too hard
You'll be pushin' up the daisies in some old boneyard

Ah uh
Ah UH

WMR:
Out in Hollywood the paper money rolls
They feed their egos instead of their souls
A million here, a million there
A mindless corporate dance
Gettin' paid for fuckin' off in the south of France

They don't do the shows
But they act like the stars
They fly around in G-4's and suck on big cigars
It ain't about the talent
It ain't about the skill
It's all about the silly stupid horseshit deal!

Overkill, overkill
Such a megalo modern problematic ill
Climb too fast and shove too hard
You'll be pushin' up the daisies in the old boneyard

[ horn/pan break ]

I got no corporate gig
I got no guru (ah UH)
I don't own ocean front in Honolulu (Ah uh)
You write the big checks
But I pay your bills
Now someone's got to tell you 'bout overkill

Overkill, overkill
Such a megalo modern problematic ill
Climb too fast and shove too hard
You'll be pushin' up the daisies in some old boneyard

Overkill, overkill
Such a megalo modern problematic ill
Climb too fast and shove too hard
You'll be pushin' up the daisies in some old boneyard

One of Jimmy's best | Reviewer: Sgt. Steele | 11/5/09

Overkill is one of Jimmy's best, for sure. Great tune, good lyrics performed to perfection! Also has a lot of truth behind it as so many Buffett songs do. There's a lot of ego pumped out by those that don't do the show. Their just ridin' the coat tails...
