“Back this hitch up into the water
Untie all the cables and rope Step onto the astro turf Get yourself a coozie Let’s go Who said anything about skiin’? Floatin’ is all I wanna do You can climb the ladder
Just don’t rock the boat while I barbeque
On the pontoon
Jumpin’ out the back, don’t act like you don’t want to Party in slow motion Out here in the open Mmmmmmm…motorboatin’ (Hoo hoo hoo) Reach your hand down into the cooler Don’t drink it if the mountains aren’t blue Try to keep it steady as you recline on your black intertubePontoon Makin’ waves and catchin’ rays up on the roof
Party in slow motion Out here in the open Mmmmmm…motorboatin’ (Hoo hoo hoo) (Hoo hoo hoo) 5 mile an hour with aluminum side
Wood panelin’ with a water slide Can’t beat the heat, so let’s take a ride Chorus: On the pontoon Makin’ waves and catchin’ rays up on the roof Jumpin’ out the back, don’t act like you don’t want to Party in slow motion I’m out here in the open Mmmmmmm…motorboatin’ On the pontoon (Hoo hoo hoo) On the pontoon (Hoo hoo hoo) Back this hitch out into the water On the pontoon (Hoo hoo hoo) (Hoo hoo hoo) “
I will keep this simple because the picture story is so sweet, but one of my old camp friends produced this super show tonight filled with loads of talent in Boston for CMA’s Songwriter’s Series on Livestream and we blasted it in the house. An old fellow college alum, Luke Laird (who I got to hear in the rawest form at the SAE house at MTSU many moons ago) has now successfully written an insane amount of hits including my new summer favorite Pontoon by Little Big Town. His catchy hit must have inspired Captain Hunter to build our very own “boat train” for a “party in slow motion”. And for the record, Hunter is not competing for the U.S. women’s beach volleyball team, but he certainly knows how to pick his “leisure suits” to get comfy after a long day of school.
