Jimmy Buffett – Jolly Mon lyrics

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

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, make Orion ring
(Jolly Mon)

Well, they always like to go to the islands near and far
He always found his way by Orion lucky star
He'd tell them of their joys, tell them of their woes
They loved to see him come and they'd hate to see him go

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, make the magic ring
(Jolly Mon)

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

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, give 'em everything
(Jolly Mon)

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

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, give 'em everything
(Jolly Mon)

The night was filled with magic, they bid the sea goodbye
Swam into the heavens and 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

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, give 'em everything
(Jolly Mon)

Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon, sing
(Jolly Mon)
Woah, woah, woah, woah, make the magic ring
(Jolly Mon)

Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon sing

Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah, Jolly Mon sing
