lyrics

Showed up late on Friday, snuck out around noon
Made the most of my weekend, but Monday came too soon
I've been burning this candle, both ends every day
I've got a new way to handle what life throws my way

(Chorus I)
I'll take it with a grain of salt
Splash of lime in my alcohol
Just Jose Cuervo and me
Toe tappin’ on my two left feet
Everything’s gonna be just fine
The sun can't always shine
So if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt

Got a call from the boss man, said he's letting me go
So I shipped my farmer's tan down to old Mexico
Still got a mortgage, still got bills I can't pay
But I'm in no hurry, my worries I wash them away

(Chorus II)
I'll take it with a grain of salt
Splash of lime in my alcohol
Sun kissed senoritas and me
A little blanket on a sandy beach
Everything’s gonna be just fine
Down here the sun always shines
But if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt

There’s no cure for the blues like the blue of the ocean
And beautiful girls in bikinis and coconut lotion
Asking me would I like one more tropical potion, uh huh I would

(Chorus II)
And if a little rain should fall
I'll take it with a grain of salt
T-E-Q-U-I-L-A
(Chorus II)
(Chorus I)
