JIMMY BUFFETT - He Went To Paris Lyrics
By: jimmy buffett1973He went to paris lookin' for answersTo questions that bothered him soHe was impressive, young and aggressiveSavin' the world on his ownBut the warm summer breezesThe french wines and cheesesPut his ambition at bayThe summers and wintersScattered like splintersAnd four or five years slipped awayThen he went to england, played the pianoAnd married an actress named kimThey had a fine life, she was a good wifeAnd bore him a young son named jimAnd all of the answers and all of the questionsLocked in his attic one day'cause he liked the quiet clean country livin'And twenty more years slipped awayWell the war took his baby, the bombs killed his ladyAnd left him with only one eyeHis body was battered, his whole world was shatteredAnd all he could do was just cryWhile the tears were a-fallin' he was recallin'Answers he never foundSo he hopped on a freighter, skidded the oceanAnd left england without a soundNow he lives in the islands, fishes the pilin'sAnd drinks his green label each dayWriting his memoirs, losin' his hearin'But he don't care what most people sayThrough eighty-six years of perpetual motionIf he likes you he'll smile and he'll sayJimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragicBut I had a good life all the wayCoda:And he went to paris lookin' for answersTo questions that bothered him so
