Delaney Talks to Statues Lyrics - Jimmy Buffett



Review The Song (2)


Delaney Talks to Statues
By: Jimmy Buffett, Amy Lee, Mac McAnally
1994
Delaney talks to statues
As she dances 'round the pool
She chases cats through Roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
That I cannot discover
But she knows I love her so
When I tuck her 'neath the covers

Chorus:
Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life's good on our boat

Delaney draws me pictures
She finger paints the sand
We chase the dogs and hop like frogs
Then I do my bad handstands
She's growin' up too fast for me
And askin' lots of questions
Some I know the answers to
And some I'm lookin' for suggestions

Chorus:
Father, daughter
Born by the water
Surf's up, sun's down
Life in a beach town

And some of the things I've seen
Maybe she won't have to see
But there's a lot I want to pass along
That was handed down to me

Delaney talks to statues
As she dances 'round the pool
She chases cats through Roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
Just a little like her mother
And she knows I love her so
When I tuck her 'neath the covers

Chorus:
Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life's good on our boat
Shells sink, dreams float
Life's good on our boat

Perfect Father-Daughter Wedding Dance Song | Reviewer: Tess | 1/8/10

Written for his second daughter, Buffett's fatherhood ballad about raising a girl-child in the laid-back beach lifestyle he himself popularized in his music, clearly defines his role as a philosopher-songwriter of Life. His paternal love slides through every verse, with a knowing sadness that her growing up will distance them. Until then, he enjoys her playfulness and contributes to the magic of her childhood as he teaches her what he had learned.
