What is a Parrot Head? they ask when we appear in mass
What makes you wear those crazy clothes and imitate an ass?
The answer is not simple but then again, it is
Tis really just a frame of mind around Jimmy Buffett’s biz.
It’s sitting in a traffic jam and picturing a beach,
A far off island in the sea that’s just beyond your reach
A flowered shirt, a crazy hat, a cheeseburger in hand
A beach chair at an awesome park with a Trop-rock music band.
By day we may be doctors and lawyers and don a 3 piece suit
By night the margaritas flow and grass skirts sure look cute
With sailing songs and steele drum beats the stress can melt away
And if you haven’t tried it, don’t knock it as they say.
We celebrate the pirate life, the hula girls and rum
A bunch of crazy drinkin’ folk we have been called by some
Dancing barefoot, squeezing limes, it is a Tropical circus
But hold the bashing and keep in mind, we Party with a Purpose.
So welcome to this phlocking and we hope that you’ll be kind
Beyond the beaks and feathers you will certainly no doubt find
The greatest bunch of people that take charity to heart,
That welcome anyone that has the urge to play a part.
