    Happy Birthday Jimmy Buffett

    Jimmy Buffett arrived Christmas Day
    As a baby with nothing to say
    Then grew up and became
    Rife with fortune and fame
    Like Pat Boone and the late Marvin Gaye

    In a band called The Now Generation
    Jimmy started the slow cultivation
    Of a budding career
    Spanning many a year
    Earning many a standing ovation

    He recorded two humdrum LPs
    Made of vinyl and packaged in sleeves
    Not too many were sold
    But he later struck gold
    When he moved to the Florida Keys

    With ‘Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes’
    Jimmy got rich and well known
    Earning royalty fees
    Of significant magnitudes
    Much like Mick Jagger, a Stone

    ‘Margaritaville’ launched him to glory
    Jimmy Buffett related the story
    Of a man with no salt
    Who imbibes to a fault
    And wakes up every day feeling sorry

    ‘Come Monday’, another nice tune
    He released was a wonderful boon
    To his revenue flow
    As mainstream radio
    And his fans ate it up with a spoon

    So let’s wish Happy Birthday to Jimmy
    Who’s been known from New York to New Guinea
    For his singular style
    And his radiant smile
    Since the days of the late Tiny Timmy
