Cheeseburgers and Fins

We were listening to a Jimmy Buffett concert on the way to FKO and it once again struck me how similar the verses of "Fins" and "Cheeseburger in Paradise" are. Of course, Cheeseburger has the bridge and the choruses are markedly different. And it's ok for a songwriter to occasionally steal from himself.

But then I popped out this chorus:

Can't you see them circling, honey?
Can't you see them schooling around?
You've got buns to the left!
Buns to the right!
And you're the only grill in town.
