Please note that the videos embedded with the songs were posted by some great Parrotheads on YouTube and not my creation.
Jimmy Buffett seems to be at his song writing best when he is writing about his children and, as he says in the video, this one is for his daughter, Sara Delaney. "Delaney Talks to Statues" (1994) is on the Fruitcakes CD.
I had some trouble finding a video for this song as so many people posted it with their children in it and, of course, restricted the video. This one is of an acoustic concert that Jimmy did and it does have a certain intimacy and closeness with the crowd that is not seen in his larger concerts; although Jimmy is always good with a crowd.
I've always loved this song as it is such a nice anthem to a young girl just dancing around and living in her imagination. She also gets to be in Rome which is certainly a bonus, but as any young kid will do, she talks to the statues and chases cats and enjoys her life as a little girl whose father loves her so very much.
