A Pirate Looks at Forty

By: Jimmy Buffett


Mother, mother ocean

I have heard you call


I wanted to sail upon your waters

Am7 G

since I was three feet tall

Am D

You've seen it all

Am7 G

You've seen it all

I watched the men who rode you

Switch from sails to steam

And in your belly you hold the treasure

That few have ever seen

Most of them dreams

Most of them dreams

Yes, I am a pirate

Two hundred years too late

The cannons don't thunder

There's nothin' to plunder

I'm an over forty victim of fate

Arriving too late

Arriving too late

I've done a bit of smugglin'

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

I have been drunk now

For over two weeks,

I passed out and I rallied

And I sprung a few leaks,

But I've got stop wishin'

Got to go fishin'

I'm down to rock bottom again

Just a few friends

Just a few friends

I go for younger women

Lived with several awhile

And though I ran away

They'll come back one day

And I still can manage a smile

It just takes a while

Just takes a while

Mother, mother ocean

After all these years I've found

My occupational hazard being

My occupation's just not around

I feel like I've drowned
