Jimmy Buffett - Domino College

By: Jimmy Buffett, Dan Fogelberg

1986

Found myself a matchbook

Beside some hotel bed

Opened it up and looked inside

And this is what it said

Chorus:

Get on back to school

Domino college, back to school

Boneyard full of knowledge

W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation

Back to school (going back to school, going back, back to school)

Fly down to Miami

Get yourself a boat

Fill it full of suntan oil

And rent yourself a goat

Ain't no registration

Ain't no student loan

You may not learn to read or write

But you will surely learn to roll dem bones

Chorus:

Get on back to school

Domino college, back to school

Boneyard full of knowledge

W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation

Back to school (going back to school, going back, back to school)

They don't rap your knuckles

If you cut the class

They just track you through the jungle boy

Then they kick your ass

It's a different kind of domino theory

They teach you down in Butler town

If you lose you buy the booze

And then the student body all falls down

Chorus:

They can't get back to school

Domino college, back to school

Fountain of knowledge

W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation

Back to school (going back, back to school)

Get on back

Make your parents hate you

Be a big disgrace

Act just like a domino

And fall on your face

Chorus:

You can't get back to school

Domino college, back to school

Fountain of knowledge

There ain't no graduation from this kind of education

Back to school (going back, back to school)

W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation

Back to school (going back, back to school)

Be true to your school

-- Spoken:

"Oh, Jan & Dean be true to your school. Big six, big six, whose got it? Goddamn Robert when you gonna play man, hey man, say, you know whose turn it is."

Coda:

Back to school (going back to school) repeat and fade
