Coconut Telegraph

=================

By Jimmy Buffett

E A E

It's Tuesday on the is-land

B E

Not much going on

A E

The parties are all o-ver

B E

They ended just past dawn

E A E

The jungle drums are beat-ing

B E

With the tales from late last night

A E

Cause stories bear repea-ting

B E

For everyone's delight

Chorus:

E A E

You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph

B E

Can't keep nothin' under their hat

A E

You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph

B E

Sayin' who did dis and dat

A E B E

Dis and dat, dis and dat

Now I'm not one for dealing gossip

But was he that big a fool?

To do a belly buster high dive

And miss the entire pool?

And what became of sweet Melissa?

And the boy nobody knew

Did Ricardo ever find her?

I swear it's just between me and you

2nd Chorus:

But you can hear it on the coconut telegraph

By now everybody knows

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph

Just who comes and goes

Comes and goes, comes and goes

A E B A E B

La la la la la la la la la la la la la la

A E

La la la la (la la la la la)

A E B

La la la la (la la la la la)

It's hump day on the island

The lines have all gone dead

All the juicy news is history

I guess everything's been said

But when the eagle flies on Friday

And the boys break out the rum

Then the joint begins to jumpin'

And you'll hear those hotlines hum

Last Chorus:

Put it on the coconut telegraph

All the celebration and the stress

Baby put it on the coconut telegraph

In twenty-five words or less

I want to hear it on the coconut telegraph

All the celebration and the stress

Baby put it on the coconut telegraph

In twenty-five words or less

Dis and dat, comes and goes

Dis and dat, comes and goes
