I need the words to Jummy Buffet's song "A Sailor/Pirate Looks At 40." One of my special fans is a big time Jimmy Buffet fan and I am wanting to learn this song for him and his wife for an upcoming special concert appearance.

Thanks, Jim, the "Orange Yodeler" Daughtrey

G'day,
I once found all Jimmy Buffet's lyrics by doing an Alta Vista search. Not sure if they're still there though. Cheers,
Alan

A PIRATE LOOKS AT FORTY
(Jimmy Buffett, 1974)

Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call.
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall.
You’ve seen it all. You’ve seen it all.

Watched the men who rode you switch from sails to steam,
And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen.
Most of ‘em dream. Most of ‘em dream.

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.

And I have been drunk now for over two weeks.
I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks,
But I got stop wishin’. Got to go fishin’.
Down to rock bottom again.
Just a few friends. Just a few friends.

I go for younger women. Lived with several awhile,
Though I ran ‘em away, they’d come back one day.
Still could manage to smile.
Just takes a while. Just takes a while.

Mother, mother ocean, after all the years I’ve found
My occupational hazard being my occupation’s just not around.
I feel like I’ve drowned. Gonna head uptown.
I feel like I’ve drowned. Gonna head uptown.

There is a song Jimmy Buffet sings that my friends and I don't know the name of, but part of the chorus is "One banana, two banana, three banana for my family". Please let me know what the name of the song is and what the lyrics are.

Thanks

Tra La La Song, The (One Banana, Two Banana)

by: 
Banana Splits, The

Lyrics by: 
Tony Powers/Richie Adams

Peak:
96

Year:
1969
One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
Coming on to bring you the Banana Splits show

Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone

Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la

Four banana, three banana, two bananas, one
All bananas playing in the bright warm sun,
Flipping like a pancake, popping like a cork,
Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and, Snork

Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone

Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la

(background singer - La-----aaah!)

Two Banana, four banana, one banana, three
Swinging like a bunch of monkeys hanging from a tree
Hey there everybody won`t you come along and see
How much like Banana Splits everyone can be

Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone

Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
