      About "The Wino And I Know"

      Lyrics for Jimmy Buffett - "The Wino And I Know"

      The ice cream man he's a hillbilly fan,
      He's got seventy-eights by Hank Snow,
      Walks down the street, shufflin' his feet,
      To the rhythm that only he knows.
      And I've seen him in so many places,
      I saw him the night I was born,
      In a Bourbon Street bar I received my first scar
      From an old man so tattered and torn.

      And the Wino and I know the pains of street singin'
      Like the door-to-door salesman knows
      The pains of bell ringin'
      It's a strange situation,
      A wild occupation,
      Living my life like a song.

      Well the coffee is strong
      At the Cafe do Monde,
      And the donuts are too hot to touch,
      But just like a fool, when those
      Sweet goodies cool, I ate 'til I ate way too much.
      Cause I'm livin' on things that excite me,
      Be they pastries or lobsters or love,
      I'm just tryin' to get by being quiet and shy,
      In a world full of pushin' and shove.

      And the Wino and I know the pains of backbustin',
      Like the farmer knows the pain of his pick-up
      Truck rustin'.
      It's a strange situation, a wild occupation,
      Living my life like a song.

      Sweet Senorita, won't you please come with me?
      Back to the island, honey, back to the sea,
      Back to the only place that I want to be.

      And the Wino and I know the joys of the ocean,
      Like a boy knows the joys of his milkshake
      In motion.
      It's a strange situation, a wild occupation,
      Living my life like a song.
