Fat Person Man

by Jimmy Buffett

from the album Don’t Stop the Carnival


Lyrics

Sheila -
You got to get rid of
Dat fat person man
Send him to French Guiana
China or Japan
Get him off of dis island
Ders no reconcilin’
Da rumours have already spread
He don’t leave dis island
He lose his head I can’t help it
I just tell the truth

Norman -
Now Sheila I can’t do that
Try and understand
He’s not just some drunk asshole
He’s my money man
He’s got banks in Nebraska
And mines in Alaska
His childish ways can be misread

Sheila -
I’ll say it one more time sir
He lose his head I can’t help it
I just tell the truth

Norman -
Now Lester’s really harmless

Sheila -
But Hippolyte’s a threat

Norman -
Whole life here in Kinja
Rests on this Tilson fete
I can’t have a beheading
Or any blood letting
Oh Sheila tell me what to do

Sheila -
Stick to do dat fat person
Like you be glue

Norman -
I will keep him on the beach at the barbeque

Lester -
I can’t help it I just tell the truth
