Song facts

My Gummie Just Kicked In” is a song co-written by Jimmy Buffett and released on his last album, “Equal Strain On All Parts“, in 2023. The song is described as a surf rock song that tells a story about a woman’s experience of eating a cannabis edible at a summer dinner party. The song was inspired by a real-life event attended by Buffett, his wife Jane Slagsvol, Paul McCartney, and his wife Nancy. During the party, Buffett was concerned about Nancy’s well-being, and when he asked her about it, she simply replied with the title of the song. They all joked that the experience would make for a good song, and later Buffett followed through on writing it, even including Paul on bass guitar for the final recording.


Buffett, just like Sir Paul, spends his summer in the Hamptons section of Long Island, New York. The two music legends have been friends for years, and Buffett had the McCartney’s over to his house in the town of Sag Harbor last summer for dinner.

Jimmy talked about that dinner and said, “We went to sit down and Nancy was my dinner partner and Paul was down next to [my wife] Jane at the other end of the table with like 20 people on it. And when Nancy went to sit down she kind of stumbled a little bit and I said, ‘Whoa, are you okay? You okay?‘ And she said, ‘No, no, I’m okay. My gummie just kicked in.‘ There you go. And then I said, ‘Can I have that line?‘ And then, from down at the end of the table I heard, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa Jim, Jim, what’s going on up there?‘ It was Paul and I said, ‘Stay down there. This is your wife and I working on this thing.‘”

Buffett followed through and wrote a song he titled “My Gummie Just Kicked In.” Jimmy sent it to McCartney, who loved it. Jimmy asked him if he wanted to play on it. But McCartney initially declined, saying he had too much going on. Then a couple of months ago, while McCartney was working on his new album in Los Angeles, he called Buffett.

Jimmy talked about that phone call: “He said, ‘You know, if you need somebody to play bass…’ I wanted to say, ‘Nah, I got somebody else.’ That was my first thought. going, ‘It’s okay, but…’ I got to be very honest because at times you go, ‘That’s Paul McCartney in there playing on your song.’

I was very happy to have played on one of his latest songs called ‘My Gummy Just Kicked In’. We had a real fun session and he played me some of his new songs.

Lyrics

A summer party on the south shore
Wine and laughter and a little bit more
From the pretty girl next to me out of the blue
Came the proclamation only heard by few

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
All I know for certain is
My gummy just kicked in

Feeling no pain, she ejected from her chair
Sprang up on the table and let down her hair
A procession of expression frozen in shock
And the 60's came alive and she yelled lets rock

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
All I know for certain is
My gummy just kicked in

Tantalizing tempting state I'm in
Advertising as a saintly sin
Won't you come on in

Acapella fronts brought the big base sound
Then the full moon rose and the sun went down
The gummy in her tummy wasn't breaking any laws
She rode a bus float in her own mardi gras

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
All I know for certain is
My gummy just
My gummy just
My gummy just kicked in

A summer party on the south shore
Wine and laughter and a whole lot more
From the pretty girl next to me out of the blue
Came the proclamation only heard by few

Don't know where I'm going
Don't know where I've been
All I know for certain is
My gummy just
My gummy just
My gummy just kicked in

My gummy just
My gummy just
My gummy just kicked in
My gummy just
My gummy just
My gummy just kicked in, whoa
