My Cousin Jimmy

Even though we be cousins...
He refuses to answer my call...
He acts like he don’t even know me...
Like I don’t mean nothin’ to him at all...

I call him to get free tickets...
I ask for a free Margueritaville lunch...
I just want to hang out together in Key West...
I’ve been calling him a whole bunch...

We somethin’ like maybe fourth cousins...
And we’ll be related ‘til da end...
Come on, Cousin Jimmy!
I just want to be your best friend...

He act like he don’t want to be related...
I ain’t tryin’ to borrow money, so much...
We got da same dang blood runnin’ tru our veins...
Like he be better than me, and such...

Don’t he even know who I am...
Don’t he know we connected by blood...
Call me back sometime, Cousin Jimmy...
Stop treating me as if I’m mud...

I know you’re really be famous...
And dat you got important things to do...
I just want a picture or maybe an autograph...
Because dat’s da least dat you could do...

So if y’all happen to run into Jimmy...
And don’t mind puttin’ in da good word...
Tell him you know dat we related...
Distant cousins, maybe fourth or even third...
