​School Boy Heart

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album Banana Wind (1996).

I got a school boy heart
A novelist eye
Stout sailor's legs
And a license to fly
I came with nomad feet
And some wandering toes
That walk up my longboard
And hang off the nose

I suppose
The need to focus never arose
So something like a swiss army knife
That's my life
Frankenstein
Had nothing on his body of mine
The villagers still flockin' to see
To see me
Breakin' free
Breakin' free

'Cause I got a school boy heart
A novelist eye
Stout sailor's legs
And a license to fly
I got a bartender ear
And a beachcomber style
Piratical nerve
And a vaudevillisn style

I-i-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-i-yi-yi-yi-yi

I suspect-
I died in some cosmic ship wreck
With all hands spread all over the deck
What the heck
Then some kind-
Of unseen and unscrupulous mind
Began to pick up what he could find
Added ice-
Shook me twice-
Rolled the dice

Now I've got a schoolboy heart
A novelist eye
Stout sailor's legs,
And a license to fly
I got a native tongue
From way down south
It sits in the cheek
Of my gulf coastal mouth

I got a school boy heart
A novelist eye
Stout sailor's legs
And a license to fly
I came with nomad feet
And some wandering toes
That glide up my longboard
And hang off the nose

I-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-yi-yi-yi-yi
I-yi-yi-yi-yi
