Il testo della He Went to Paris

He went to Paris
looking for answers
to questions that bothered him so

He was impressive,
young and aggressive,
saving the world on his own
Warm summer breezes
and french wines and cheeses
put his ambitions at bay

summers and winters
scattered like splinters
and four or five years slipped away

He went to England
played the piano
and married an actress named Kim
they had a fine life
she was a good wife
and bore him a young son named Jim

and all of the answers
to all of the questions
locked in his attic one day
he liked the quiet
clean country living
and twenty more years slipped away

well, the war took his baby
bombs killed his lady
and left him with only one eye
his body was battered
his whole world was shattered
and all he could do was just cry

while the tears were a' fallin'
he was recallin'
the answers he never found
so he hopped on a freighter
skidded the ocean
and left England without a sound

Now he lives in the islands
fishes the pylons
and drinks his green label each day
he's writing his memoirs
and losing his hearing
but he don't care what most people say

"Through eighty six years
of perpetual motion,"
if he likes you, he'll smile and he'll say,
"some of it's magic,
and some of it's tragic,
but I had a good life all the way"

He went to Paris
looking for answers
to questions that bothered him so


'He Went to Paris' is a song written and performed by American popular music singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. It was first released on his 1973 album 'A White Sport Coat and a Pink Crustacean' and was his fourth and final single from that album and it never placed on the charts.

Buffett wrote the song to Eddie Balchowsky, a one-armed Spanish Civil War veteran he met while playing in Chicago. On the live album You Had to Be There, Buffett mentions this as a favorite song he wrote.

The song appears on Songs You Know By Heart, a greatest hits compilation that includes Buffett's concert favorites ranging from 1973 to 1979. However, 'He Went to Paris' is the only song off that album that Buffett rarely plays live.
