By: Jimmy Buffett 1980  For the Gang at the Fish House

[Verse]
 E             A   E
Tuesday on the island
B              E
Not much goin' on
                A   E
The parties are all over
      B               E
They ended just past dawn

E                    A  E
The jungle drums are beating
B                             E
With the tales from late last night
                     A   E
'Cause stories bear repeating
     B            E
For everyone's delight


[Chorus]
E       A                       E
You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
           B                   E
Can't keep nothin' under their hat
        A                       E
You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
   B                   E
Sayin' who did dis and dat
A       E    B        E
Dis and dat, Dis and dat


[Verse]
E                          A   E
Now I'm not one to deal in gossip
B                     E
But was he that big a fool
                     A    E
To do a belly-buster high dive
      B              E
And miss the entire pool

E                        A   E
And what became of sweet Melissa
        B          E
And the boy nobody knew
                 A    E
Did Ricardo ever find her
             B                   E
I swear it's just between me and you


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


[Bridge]
 A     E           B
La,    la la la,   la la la
A      E           B
La,    la la la,   la la la
A      E
La,    la la la, (la la la la la la la)
A      E                B
La,    la la la, (la la la la la la oooooh)

Ah!


[Verse]
E                    A   E
It's hump day on the island
    B                   E
The lines have all gone dead
                      A   E
All the juicy news is history
        B                 E
I guess everything's been said

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


[Chorus]
    A                     E
Ah, put it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
        B                   E
All the celebration and the stress
     A                     E
Baby put it on the coconut telegraph (telegraph)
   B                    E
In twenty-five words or less

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