Time To Go Home
Written by: Jimmy Buffett
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Don’t Stop The Carnival (1998)

Lyrics:
/Henny
Hey now mine host
Don’t be so melancholy
You’ve made the most
Out of Amy Ball’s folly
You went crazy, ran off with an actress and didn’t get rich

What can I say?
I still love you, you son of a bitch
Norman New York’s gray and cold
But somehow I miss that

/ Norman
And running the Gull Reef Club Bordered on hand to hand combat

/ Henny
You beat the odds, water Gods now it’s time for “shalom” Hey Mr. Paperman, I think it’s time to go home

/ Chorus
(sung by the cast)
Time to go home Norman
Time to go home Norman
Hey Mistuh Papuh-mon
Time to go home
Chasin’ illusions can get quite confusin’ Hey Mr. Papuh-mon time to go home

/ Norman
Henny I’m sorry I hurt you That’s all I can say

/ Henny
Who knows this whole episode Just might end up on Broadway / Norman To hell with bureaucracy and island mystery

/ Henny
Let’s clear the air dear but no more affairs here

/ Norman
To hell with the hill crowd and life or death parties

/ Henny
I know a guy who has contacts at Sardi’s

/ Duet
Hey mister (Mrs.) Paperman I think it’s time to go home
/ Chorus (sung by the cast) Time to go home Norman Time to go home Norman Hey Mistuh Papuh-Mon Time to go home / Chasin’ illusions can Get quite confusin’ Hey Mr. Papuh-Mon Time to go home / Time to go home Norman Time to go home Norman Hey Mistuh Papuh-Mon Time to go home / Chasin’ illusions can Get quite confusin’ Hey Mr. Paperman Time to go home / Time to go home Norman Time to go home Norman Hey Mistuh Papuh-Mon Time to go home / Chasin’ illusions Get quite confusin’ Hey Mr. Paperman Time to go home
