Jimmy Buffett - Jolly Mon

There is a tale that the Island people tell

Don't know if it is true but I love it so well

Jolly Mon sings for his supper every night

People fed him well 'cause he treated them so right

Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh make a rhymn ring

And they wanted him to sing on the islands near and far

He always found his way by Orion lucky star

He'd tell them of their joys, he'd tell them of their woes

They loved to see him come, they'd hate to see him go

Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh, make the music ring

He was makin' his way home on a dark and stormy night

When he heard a cry for help, and he saw a flashin' light

When he reached the other boat, offered them a hand

They said Give us all your cargo

As they took a pirate stand

Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh, give 'em everyting

Jolly Mon it's over sing your last song very well

They tossed him in the ocean

'cause their hearts were made in Hell

Came along a dolphin, he said, Jolly Mon hello!

I've always loved your singing, climb aboard, don't let go

Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh, make the oceans ring

The night was filled with magic, they bid the sea goodbye

they Swam into the heavens, they stayed up in the sky

And all the Island people when they wish upon a star

See the Dolphin and the Jolly Mon

Who tell them where they are

Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh, make the heavens ring

Oh oh oh oh, Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh oh, make the magic ring

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh Jolly Mon sing

"Goodbye Jolly Mon. This is the scariest song of the evening for some people. Oooohhhh. Especially for any of you people who came here this evening, left somebody at your house to watch after your things. People with names like Snake, Johnny D., Everlasting Moonie. And the last thing the said to you was, Don't worry about a thing, we'll treat it like our own. This could happen to you."
