On Jimmy Buffett's HOT WATER album

I'm searching for the spirit of the great heart --- To hold and stand me by
I'm searchin' for the spirit of the great heart --- Under a (West Palm Beach) sky
I'm searchin' for the spirit of the great heart --- I see the fire in your eyes
I'm searchin' for the spirit of the great heart --- That beats my name inside

Sometimes I feel you really know me --- Sometimes there's so much you can show me

Guk a 'mzimba (body grow old) --- Sala 'nhliziyo (but heart remain behind)

The Parrot Heads for the Palm Beaches are an equal-opportunity, non-exclusive, non-political social organization. We consider all faiths and beliefs to be private matters beyond the scope of our charter. Therefore, we strictly limit our public activities to aiding charities and performing community service. We do not offer ourselves as a forum for any call-to-action not related to our core mission.


Where exactly is the fictitious Margaritaville?
It’s in the tropics somewhere between the port of indecision and southwest of disorder, but no parallels of latitude or longitude mark the spot exactly. You don’t have to be a navigator to get there. Palm trees provide the camouflage, passports are not required and island music rules. No waiting lines for anything. There is a beach and thatched roof bar perched on the edge of the turquoise sea where you can always find a barstool. There are lots of lies and loads of stories.
