COCONUT TELEGRAPH

Jimmy Buffett

 EAE
It's Tuesday on the is-land
 BE
Not much going on
 AE
The parties are all o-ver
 BE
They ended just past dawn
 EAE
The jungle drums are beat-ing
 BE
With the tales from late last night
 AE
Cause stories bear repea-ting
 BE
For everyone's delight
Chorus:
 EAE
     You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph
 BE
     Can't keep nothin' under their hat
 AE
     You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph
 BE
     Sayin' who did dis and dat
 AEBE
     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
 AEBAEB
     La  la la la   la la la        la  la la la   la la la
 AE
     La  la la la   (la la la la la)
 AEB
     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
