Jimmy Buffett: A Pirate Looks at 40

Mother mother ocean
I have heard your call,
wanted to sail upon your water
since I was three feet tall.

You've seen it all.
You've seen it all.

Watched the men who rode you
Switch from sail to steam,
In your belly you hold the treasures
Few have ever seen.

Most of them dreams,
Most of them dreams,

I've done my bit of smuggling,
and I've run my share of grass.
I've made enough money to buy Miami
but I pissed it away so fast.

Never meant to last.
Never meant to last.

I go for younger women,
Lived with several a while.
Though I ran away, didn't look back one day
I still could manage a smile.

Just takes a while,
just takes a while.

Now, I have been drunk now for over two weeks
I've passed out and I've rallied and I've slept a few winks

But I've got to stop wishin'
Got to go fishin'
Down in rock bottom again,

with just a few friends,
Just a few friends.

Mother mother ocean
After all the years I've found,
My occupational hazzard be
My occupation's just not around.

I feel like I've drowned
Gonna head uptown.

I woke up with that in my dream. And I thought "How appropriate!" Except I'm not 40, and I've never been to Rock Bottom to fish, but everything else is like, all me.
