Jimmy Buffett Has A Way With Words

I was just sitting here with Pandora playing music when a song of Jimmy Buffett’s came on that I have not heard before. One of the phrases that is in the song is as follows:

I’m growing older, but not up. … I would rather die while I am living, than live while I’m dead.

Catchy words to aid the memory. Sometimes it is just difficult to remember to practice them.

  1. A phrase from another song I’ve heard a few times recently:

    “I’m not as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was.”

    Sorry I don’t know the artist or songwriter, but your line prompted my memory of this.

  2. How bout this:

    I’ve done a little of smugglin
    Run my share of grass

    Made enough money to buy Miami
    But P*ssed it All away too fast

    Never meant to last.


    Jimmy B.

  3. Nice songs, but Buffet is didn’t fritter much of it away. In fact, he is a money magnet. He has piles of cash like his cousin Warren.

  4. I’ve been listening to JB since the late 70s and realized that I liked his early music (“Why Don’t We Get Drunk?”). You need to hear the songs from his newest album, “Take the Weather with You”. I particularly like the song about dealing with the aftermath of Katrina, “Breathe In, Breathe Out, Move On”. Isn’t that what we always have to do after major negative events in our life?

  5. Jimmy generally finds a way to see the positive side of life and that’s one of the things I love about him.

    Some people never find it, some only pretend
    But me, I just want to live happily ever after
    Every now and then.
