Cultural Infidel
Written by: Jimmy Buffett/Roger Guth/Russ Kunkel/Peter Mayer/Jim Mayer
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Banana Wind (1996)

Lyrics:
I'm a cultural infidel, painting in the dark
I'm a cultural infidel, singing in the park
Socrates, hypothesis, the music of Mozart
I'm a cultural infidel, coming from the heart

Free thinkin', hoodwinkin', unblinkin' man
Start trouble, burst bubbles, join my caravan
Someone's got to talk about accountability
Someone's got to raise some hell, I guess it could be me

I'm a cultural infidel trying to draw a crowd
I'm a cultural infidel, singing right out loud
Philosophy is not for me, laughing is my game
I'm a cultural infidel, slap me with the blame

Loose cannon, Armageddon, preachers at the door
Spittin' poison at the boys 'n girls on dance floor
I hear them in the congress, I see them on TV
I hope the Inquisition remains a memory

Al'Diablo Picasso, Al'Diablo Manet
Al'Diablo Fontainebleau, Al'Diable Hemingway
O'Diab Dr. Thompson, O'Diab St. Joan
O'Diab Village Paeople, O'Diab Rolling Stones
Someone's got to talk about accountability
Someone's got to raise some hell, it might as well be me

I'm a cultural infidel, believe in common sense
I'm a cultural infidel, love the present tense
But we have to keep a look out for those mean old backed-up farts
I'm a cultural infidel, comin' from the heart

My heart, my heart, mon coeur
Will I see you in Heaven, will I see you in Hell
Will I see you in Rio, only time will tell

Will I see you in Heaven, will I see you in Hell
Will I see you tomorrow, only time will tell
