I wrote this song after a vivid dream, which I remember. I had written a song called “Drunk on the Beach” and was pitching it to Jimmy Buffett in hopes he would record it. He was allowing me to tag along as he went about his busy day.

As soon as I woke I went straight to the computer and wrote this song. I’m sad to say it has no redeeming social value. In my defense, I have been only drunk once in my life, and it wasn’t on a beach.

Drunk on the Beach

By Dallas Denny


Give me an ocean

A spot on the sand

A bottle of beer

And an elbow that bends

Some ban de soleil

And a few of my friends

And I’m drunk on the beach again



Drunk on the beach

Drunk on the beach

The lime and Tecate

Within easy reach

Drunk on the beach

And I’d do it again

I’m drunk on the beach again


Today at the office

Things really sucked

I thought I’d go postal

Start running amuck

So I told ’em to stuff it

And left before ten

And I’m drunk on the beach again
