Working On a Tan Lyrics

by Brad Paisley

She's got the focus, she's got the time
She's got a deeper shade in mind
She's got headphones, got spring break
A swimsuit and Coppertone 8

'Cause she's working on a tan
She's sitting in the sand
Chilling in a chair, flower in her hair
Margarita in her hand

She's soaking up the sun
Getting next to nothing done
There's a term paper due in a week or two
Oh but she don't give a damn
She's working on a tan, working on a tan

All the Kappa Sigma boys been lifting weights
Hitting that gym, drinking protein shakes
They got a cooler full of beer and it's loaded in the Jeep
Why you think they're going to the beach

'Cause she's working on a tan
She's sitting in the sand
Chilling in a chair, flower in her hair
Margarita in her hand

She's soaking up the sun
Getting next to nothing done
She's attracting a crowd
Got their tongues hanging out
Oh but she don't give a damn
She's working on a tan, working on a tan

Yeah, so many things run through her mind
When to turn and when to re-apply

So this week while you're stuck in your cubicle
Or you're serving Starbucks or you're still in school
Far from needing sunscreen on your skin
Sorry but I have to rub it in

She's working on a tan
She's sitting in the sand
Chilling in a chair, flower in her hair
Margarita in her hand

Soaking up the sun
Getting next to nothing done
Forget about her grades, forget her GPA
Oh, she doesn't give a damn
She's working on a tan, working on a tan
She's working on a tan, working on a tan
