James William "Jimmy" Buffett (born December 25, 1946) is a singer, songwriter, author, businessman, and movie producer. He is best known for his music, which often portrays an "island escapism" lifestyle. Together with his Coral Reefer Band, Buffett's musical hits include "Margaritaville" (No. 234 on RIAA's list of "Songs of the Century"), and "Come Monday". He has a devoted base of fans known as "Parrotheads".

Aside from his career in music, Buffett is also a best-selling writer and is involved in two restaurant chains named after two of his best known songs, "Cheeseburger in Paradise" and "Margaritaville". He owns the Margaritaville Cafe restaurant chain and co-developed the Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant concept with OSI Restaurant Partners (parent of Outback Steakhouse), which operates the chain under a licensing agreement with Buffett. source:wiki


Lyric Snippets

Song: "My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don’t love jesus"

My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don’t love jesus (oh my lordy it’s that...) It’s that kind of mornin’ Really was that kind of night Tryin’ to tell myself that my condition is improvin’ And if I don’t die by thursday I’ll be roarin’ friday night


-- Song: Fruitcakes

Religion! Religion! Oh, there's a thin line between Saturday night and Sunday morning. Here we go now. Alright, alter boys.

Where's the church, who took the steeple Religion is in the hands of some crazy-ass people Television preachers with bad hair and dimples The god's honest truth is it's not that simple It's the Buddhist in you, it's the Pagan in me It's the Muslim in him, she's Catholic ain't she? It's the born again look its the WASP and the Jew Tell me what's goin on, I ain't gotta clue
