1- Rum by Brothers Osborne

"Let's put our hearts together

Two parts love and a pinch of good weather

And top it all off with the sun

Andmix it with rum, mmm, mmm, mm, mm"

2 - Rum Is The Reason by Toby Keith

"I ain’t getting much done but I’m having fun sailing on the deep blue sea

My whole body goes numb from a bottle of dark rum and the sun sinking down on me

My catch of the day is a tall Cuba Libra chased down with a 12 oz curl

Yeah, rum is the reason I guess...

Hey, rum is the reason pirates never ruled the world"

3 - Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes by Jimmy Buffett

"I didn't ponder the question too long;

I was hungry and went out for a bite.

Ran into a chum with a bottle of rum,

and we wound up drinkin' all night."


4 - Old Blue Chair by Kenny Chesney

"That chair was my bed one New Year's night

When I passed out from too much Malibu and Diet

And I woke up to a hundred mosquito bites, I swear

Got 'em all sittin' right there in that old blue chair"

5 - Castaway by Zac Brown Band

"Pour me another one

Make it a strong one

We're gonna have some fun tonight

Just like the other one

Make it a double rum

We're gonna castaway tonight"
