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.


  1. Love your Parrothead A to Z theme!

  2. He sure was a prolific singer! I am enjoying my daily feeds of his music with you PB... looking forward to them even! :-)

  3. Stopping by for my Buffett fix. Interested to see what you pick for each letter is. Great choice.

  4. Hi, I really like Jimmy Buffett. Thanks for the choice. Ruby

  5. Thanks for the daily Jimmy Buffet fix. :D


  6. He did write some timeless music and I can't get enough! ♥

  7. The last time I was to a Buffett concert--it was in an outdoor ampitheatre and it turned into a disaster! Buffett--was awesome--but it poured buckets, turning the hill side into a virtual mud pool. We stayed as long as we could, not disrespect to Buffett. Couldn't find our car on the way out (it was dark and no lighting on the other side of hill where we parked). It took 3 hours in the shower to get all that mud off of me. That would have been in 1994. Wow. Thanks for sharing ;)

    Cheers, Jenn

    1. I can certainly see why that was the "last" time you were at a Buffett concert! Glad to be able to give you one here without the mud.

  8. So, I had to go look up parrothead. That's how culturally ignorant I am. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.
