Jimmy Buffett – Coconut Telegraph lyrics

By: jimmy buffett
1980
For the gang at the fish house
Tuesday on the island
Not much goin on
The parties are all over
They ended just past dawn

The jungle drums are beating
With the tales from late last night
Cause stories bear repeating
For everyones delight

Chorus:
You can hear em on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
Can't keep nothin under their hat
You can hear em on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
Sayin who did this and dat
This and dat, this and dat

Now I'm not one to deal in 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

Chorus:
But you can hear it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
By now everybody knows
You can hear it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
Just who comes and goes
Comes and goes, comes and goes

La, la la la, la la la
La, la la la, la la la
La, la la la, (la la la la la la la)
La, la la la, (la la la la la la oooooh)
Ah!

Its hump day on the island
The lines have all gone dead
All the juicy news is history
I guess everythings been said

But when the eagle flies on friday
And the boys break out the rum
And the joint begins to jumpin
And you'll hear those hot lines hum

Chorus:
Ah, put it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
All the celebration and the stress
Baby put it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
In twenty-five words or less

I want to hear it on the coconut telgraph (telegraph)
All the celebration and the stress
Baby put it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
In twenty-five words or less
This and dat, comes and goes
This and dat, comes and goes
