  • By: jimmy buffett
  • 1973
  • I once knew a poet
  • Who lived before his time
  • He and his dog spooner
  • Would listen while hed rhyme
  • Words to make ya happy
  • Words to make you cry
  • Then one day the poet suddenly did die
  • But he left behind a closet
  • Filled with verse and rhyme
  • And through some strange transaction
  • One was printed in the times
  • And everybodys searchin
  • For the king of undergound
  • Well they found him down in florida
  • With a tombstone for a crown
  • Everybody knows a line
  • From his book that cost four ninety-nine
  • I wonder if he knows hes doin
  • Quite this fine
  • cause his books are all best sellers
  • And his poems were turned to song
  • Had his brother on a talk show
  • Though they never got along
  • And now hes called immortal
  • Yes hes even taught in school
  • They say he used his talents
  • A most proficient tool
  • But he left all of his royalties
  • To spooner his ol hound
  • Growin old on steak and bacon
  • In a doghouse ten feet round
  • And everybody wonders
  • Did he really lose his mind
  • No he was just a poet who lived before his time
  • He was just a poet who lived before his time
