Where They Make Rum is the lead single from the summer 2019 6-song EP "Scenes." A cocktail in every hand, and a video for every song! Check out the 360/VR video on Littlstar. The perfect song to kick off this SUMMER OF JASON with a delicious beverage.

lyrics

Where they make rum, I'm gonna go and have me some
Where the sun shines, I'm gonna take a lot of time
Where music plays, I want to spend all of my days
And where there is love, that's what you can't have too much of

Everyone is so caught up in all of this news
They don't realize it's not anything they can use

Sea touching sand, I'm gonna reach out my right hand
Salty embrace, and feel the warmth upon my face
Smoke a cigar, and ride around in vintage cars
If we breakdown, we'll set up camp in this new town

Every movie is written with violent themes
God forbid you show breasts or a woman get pleased

Everything that's old is new again
So I guess there's hope for me and my friends
When the big one falls and we have to escape
Just hop in my boat and we'll head for the cape

Ive got a plan, I'm gonna sing in this tin can
Put it on tape, and dance around just like an ape
You know a guy, who's on the radio at five
A terrible slot, another sonic paraquat

Everyone is obsessed with their own favorite team
Staring down at their phone, laughing at silly memes

Where they make rum, I'm gonna go and have me some
Smoke a cigar, and ride around in vintage cars

Everyone should relax for a minute and think
Do it here on the beach with a nice frosty drink

Everything that's old is new again
So I guess there's hope for me and my friends
When the big one falls and we have to escape
Just hop in my boat and we'll head for the cape

I pack my bleep bloops in a suitcase
I pack my bleep bloops in a suitcase
I pack my bleep bloops in a suitcase
There's no bleep bloops, this must not be my suitcase

Every phone call I get is a marketing scam
Debt collection just who do they think that I am?
Sandra gave up this number some ten years ago
Left her car in a ditch on the side of the road

Everything that's old is new again
So I guess there's hope for her and her friends
When the big one falls and they have to escape
Just hop in my boat and all head for the cape
