Off the Florida [C]Keys [Cmaj7]

[C7]  There's a place called [F]Kokomo [Fm]

That's where you [C]wanna go to get aw[Dm]ay from it all  [G7]

[C]Bodies in the san[Cmaj7]d

[C7]  Tropical drink melting [F]in your hand [Fm]

We'll be falling in [C]love to the rhythm of a [Dm]steel drum band

[G]  Way down in Kokomo



Chorus:

[C]Aruba, Jamaica, uh I wanna take ya to Berm[F]uda, Bahama, come on pretty mama

[C]Afternoon deli[Cmaj7]ghts
