On Saturday, musician Jimmy Buffett attended a Democratic campaign rally in West Palm Beach, Pensacola. The rally was for US Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum.

While performing some of his hit songs, Buffett changed the lyrics so he could speak to Republicans. A video clip shared online showed the performance.

At the rally in Florida, Jimmy Buffett, 71, told the crowd that Mayor Andrew Gillum was going to win. Gillum is the Democratic Tallahassee mayor who's running for governor of the state against GOP challenger Ron DeSantis who is a former congressman.

Then, while singing "Come Monday," the singer made a reference to Tuesday’s election. He altered the lyrics to say:

"Come Tuesday, things will change. Come Tuesday, we’re making a change. It’s been two insane years and it’s time to really switch gears. It's been two insane years and it's time to switch gears."

The musician sang:

"Some people say there's a red tide to blame," Buffett sang, "but I know, that it's all Rick Scott's fault."

Scott is now seeking a US Senate seat. Over the past several months, red tide algae have killed millions of fish off the southern Florida coasts.

This is a natural occurrence but it is made worse by pollution. Buffett, who resides in Palm Beach, spoke on the issue because he is a longtime environmentalist.

In 1981, he started his charity “Save the Manatee.” Gillum also urged voters to reject the politics of Trump and the GOP.

He said:

"We're being convinced we've got to step on our neighbor's shoulder and on their backs ... in order for us to get ahead.”

Buffett also added: "These are your guys, this is your ticket." He promised his fellow Americans, "There are better days ahead. Now let's have some fun."

Gillum also pledged to deal with the National Rifle Association, a day after a gunman killed two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee.

Addressing the murders, he stated:

"Enough is enough. We can celebrate what it means to have the Second Amendment and celebrate safety and security in our homes, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, in our houses of worship at the same time."

The musician is a man who truly speaks his mind as it was seen in September when Hurricane Florence was heading toward the East Coast. Via Instagram, Buffett posted a photo of himself smiling on a beach in South Carolina.

He captioned the post saying:

“’I ain't afraid of dying. I got no need to explain. I feel like going surfing in a hurricane’ #follybeachsurfing. On a serious note - respect mother nature, please be safe and listen to your local authorities.”
