Il testo della A Pirate Looks at Forty

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


'A Pirate Looks at Forty' is a song written and performed by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was first released on his 1974 album 'A1A' and 'Presents to Send You' is the B-side of the single.

Buffett wrote the song about Phillips 'Phil' Clark, a bartender at the Chart Room where Buffett first performed after his move to Key West, Florida. The song contains the bittersweet confession of a modern-day pirate as he looks back on the first 40 years and his life and ponders his future.

For radio play, the song was shortened by deleting the fourth verse for the single release. The song is one of Buffett's more popular, and is part of 'The Big 8' that he has played at almost all of his concerts, and always during the second set.
