      About "A Pirate Looks At Forty"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "A Pirate Looks At Forty"

      Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
      Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
      You've seen it all,you've seen it all
      Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam
      And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen
      Most of them dream, most of them dream

      Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
      The cannons don't thunder, there's nothing to plunder
      I'm an over-forty victim of fate
      Arriving too late, arriving too late
      I've done a bit of smuggling, I've run my share of grass
      I made enough money to buy Miami, but I pissed it away so fast
      Never meant to last, never meant to last

      And I have been drunk now for over two weeks
      I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
      But I got stop wishing, got to go fishing, down to rock bottom again
      Just a few friends, just a few friends

      I go for younger women, lived with several a while
      Though I ran them away, they'd come back one day
      Still could manage to smile
      Just takes a while, just takes a while

      Mother, mother ocean, after all the years I've found
      My occupational hazard being my occupation's just not around
      I feel like I've drowned, gonna head uptown
      I feel like I've drowned, gonna head uptown
