Coconut Telegraph

-----------------

by Jimmy Buffett

It's Tuesday on the island

Not much going on

The parties are all over

They ended just past dawn

Now the jungle drums are beating

With the tales of late last night

And the story's very heated

Much to everyone's delight

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph

Don't keep nothing under their hat

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph

Find out who did dis and dat

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

Well I swear it's just between me and you

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph

By now everybody knows

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph

Find out just who comes and goes

Comes and goes

Comes and goes

Well 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

And the joint begins to jumping

You'll hear those headlines hum

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
