That is Buffett, as in Jimmy Buffett. If you listen to his repertoire of songs, it is very difficult to name one that does not reference drinking. While some are more obvious than others, he will reference imbibing in some form in many of his songs.
Here are a few examples:
“Warm summer breezes and French wines and cheeses, put his ambition at bay…”
“I didn’t ponder the question too long, I was hungry and went out for a bite. I ran into a chum with a bottle of rum and we wound up drinking all night,”
“I think of Paris when I’m high on red wine…”
“…a big Kosher pickle and a cold draft beer well good God almighty which way do I steer.”
“Wasting away again in Margaritaville, searching for my lost shaker of salt.”
“Well I have been drunk now for over two weeks. I passed out and I’ve rallied and I sprung a few leaks.”
“She’s taking care to look for sharks. They hang out in the local bars. And they feed right after dark.”
You guzzle gin
Commit a little mortal sin
It’s good for the soul.”
“And the lady she hails from Trinidad, Island of the spices
Salt for your meat, and cinnamon sweet. And the rum is for all your good vices.”
Then there is that song with getting drunk in the title, but the song does not mention how the first action impairs the second action which I will leave to your imagination and memory.
Now for all you Parrot Heads (full-time or part-time) out there, please name the songs from which the lyrics are derived. For non-fans, Buffett lovingly refers to his fans as Parrot Heads.
For extra credit points, name a couple of songs of his that do not include drinking.
