🎶 No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems by Kenny Chesney
The lyrics say it all! This song just gets you into a vacation state of mind. Put it on replay.
Want a towel on a chair in the sand by the sea
Want to look through my shades and see you there with me
Want to soak up life for a while in laid back mode
No boss, no clocks, no stress, no dress code…
🎶 Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffett
You don’t have to be a Jimmy Buffett fan to recognize this song. It’s an iconic beach classic.
Nibblin’ on sponge cake
Watchin’ the sun bake
All of those tourists covered with oil
Strummin’ my six string on my front porch swing…
🎶 Toes (in the water) by the Zac Brown Band
The Zac Brown Band has so many good beach songs, but this one is one of the best.
Not a worry in the world,
A cold beer in my hand
Life is good today,
Life is good today…
🎶 Soak Up the Sun by Sheryl Crow
You might have forgotten about this song but it’s a perfect one for your beach days. Come soak up the Florida sunshine on the Gulf Coast. There’s plenty of it to go around.
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna tell everyone
To lighten up…
🎶 Two Piña Coladas by Garth Brooks
Come on down to Indian Rocks Beach and get your piña coladas—one for each hand. Cheers!
So bring me two piña coladas
I want one for each hand
Let’s set sail with Captain Morgan
Oh, and never leave dry land…
🎶 Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys
Good vibes are always found at the beach. That’s why everyone is happier here!
I love the colorful clothes she wears
And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair
I hear the sound of a gentle word
On the wind that lifts her perfume through the air…
🎶 (Sittin’ on the) Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding
Come sit a while to watch the ships, the dolphins, the pelicans and the tides. Relax and enjoy!
Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ comes
Watchin’ the ships roll in
Then I watch ’em roll away again…
