My Barracuda - Jimmy Buffett

My Barracuda
by Jimmy Buffett, Michael Utley, Russell Kunkel and Steve Cropper

Well I saw a couple
Just the other day
Living underneath a bridge
In a homeless way
Like a million others
All over this land
Living day to day
Without a master plan
In this unforgiving world there can be no doubt
It will chew you up and it will 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 still can't figure out what she's doin' down here
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
