"I cannot believe how much fun all this playing music is now. This tune kinda gives credit where credit is due."


<div style="text-align: center;">WE OWE IT ALL TO JIMMY<br />
(Jimmy Maraventano, Sr.)<br />
<br />
Looking out on the sea of smiling faces<br />
Swaying to the rhythms and the sounds<br />
Pat on your back from your favorite friends<br />
There&rsquo;s high fives going all around<br />
You may not get every single word right<br />
That&rsquo;s not what it&rsquo;s about <br />
Raise your hands to that shark fin shape<br />
Sing dance and shout<br />
<br />
CHORUS<br />
<br />
We owe it all to Jimmy <br />
And his crazy fans<br />
To all the flags and shark fins<br />
Out on those mini vans<br />
It ain&rsquo;t about the parrots<br />
Or those swaying palm trees<br />
It&rsquo;s about all the great friends<br />
That we have come to be<br />
<br />
I wish you could see this the way that I do<br />
It&rsquo;s something you just can&rsquo;t describe<br />
Take my word however absurd<br />
It looks like from the outside<br />
A simple man with a simple plan<br />
It there was any plan at all<br />
Strum a few chords <br />
Say something witty<br />
In that Southern drawl <br />
<br />
CHORUS<br />
<br />
So here I stand a poor copy at best<br />
In the middle of t his hullabaloo<br />
I&rsquo;ve said it before and I&rsquo;ll say it again<br />
It ain&rsquo;t us, it&rsquo;s really you<br />
<br />
