Jimmy Buffett Treat Her Like A Lady Lyrics

Last updated:

Treat Her Like a Lady
By: Jimmy Buffett, David Loggins
1979
Chorus:
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us sailors call her our own
Guess that's the reason why
I treat her like a lady
Just treat her like a lady

Now I don't like the sound of the ground movin' 'round
Or winds spinnin' out of control
California earthquakes, only seem to make a' me
Shake, rattle, and roll

I've been too long on the mainland
Hotels, rental cars, and phones
Time to cast 'em aside, catch the very next tide
And go back, where I belong

Chorus:
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us sailors call her our own
Guess that's the reason why
I treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady

Now great whales travel the rhumb lines
Dodging those deadly harpoons
Spawning their young, as their ancestors done
In the depths of her hidden lagoons

There're times I find myself with them
And times I feel as they do
We're on a similar course, it's just a different source
But I'm in danger of extinction too

Chorus:
Some of us sailors call her home
She's big and she's strong and she's mighty
Some of us sailors call her our own
Guess that's the reason why
I treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady
Treat her like a lady

And miss her when I'm gone

(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) got to treat her like a lady
(Lady, lady) treat her like a lady
Lady, lady
Lady, lady
Lady, lady
