Kokomo
The Beach Boys Lyrics


Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go, Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys, there's a place called Kokomo
That's where you want to go to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo
Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go
oh I want to take you down to
Kokomo, we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
That's where we want to go, way down in Kokomo

Martinique, that Montserrat mystique

We'll put out to sea and we'll perfect our chemistry
And by and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity
Afternoon delight, cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye, give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go
oh I want to take you down to
Kokomo, we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
That's where we want to go, way down in Kokomo

Port au Prince, I want to catch a glimpse

Everybody knows a little place like Kokomo
Now if you want to go and get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go
oh I want to take you down to
Kokomo, we'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
That's where we want to go, way down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica, oh I want to take you to
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go

@argo nautical I am the real composer of this song !!!
It was in the year 1984 and I wanted to have this song on a new album of the Beach Boys in the year, that I would get my Abitur.
>> (God knows, this is the truth !!! <<
I did not know, that there is a real place called Kokomo in Indiana (like there is a Frankfort in that neighbourhood) !!!
I was just thinking of Charlotte U. at that time and it was not the only song i composed for the Beach Boys.
I can remember, what the man at the counter of our postoffice was saying to me and what happened in front of the office!
So god, please forgive me. <- You know this is the truth !!!

Best wishes, OAE

When this video was made, Cruise had never even heard of Scientology : )

The only beach Boys hit without Brian Wilson writing it.

@Repomidnight It's a really good album

Sjorben

There's a few hits that Brian wasn't involved with, Long Promised Road comes to mind. Carl wrote that one, it's one of my favourites. Feel Flows, too.

@Christian Hegele Mike wrote all lyrics until Pet Sounds because Brian wrote no lyrics. Brian always had a partner with him throughout his entire career... even his psychiatrist was his partner in the early 90s.
