Aruba, Jamaica ooo, I wanna take you
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 wanna 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 ooo, I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby, why don’t we go



Ooo, I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo



To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique



We’ll put out to sea
And we’ll perfect our chemistry
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 ooo, I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby, why don’t we go



Ooo, I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo



Port Au Prince, I wanna catch a glimpse



Everybody knows
A little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo



Aruba, Jamaica ooo, I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby, why don’t we go



Ooo, I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We’ll get there fast
And then we’ll take it slow
That’s where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo



Aruba, Jamaica, ooo, I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby, why don’t we go
