Riff: Little Big Town – “Pontoon”

Aug 13, 2012

5 mile an hour with aluminum sides/Wood panelin’ with a water slide

from Pontoon lyrics by Little Big Town

Country meets the coast in “Pontoon,” a song which describes a motorboat in such absurd detail, it could be an eBay auction. Fans of seafaring may dare appreciate it, but for those of us whose feet are on solid ground, “Pontoon” is enough to make you seasick.

  • Sharon Bates

    Geez, it’s just a feel good song. I’m not great with water but I love the song. It’s about slow lazy summer days.
