Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Arruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take ya (to)
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama

Men star right roll it one time tonight
Left allemande and weave the ring
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go
Swing your lady promenade
That's where we want to go, way down to Kokomo


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade halfway round
Walk in and square thru get 4 hands round
4 hands around and right & left thru
Eight chain 6 and go for me
We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow
Swing your corner and promenade and go
That's where we want to go, way down to Kokomo


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
Arruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take you (to)
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go

Now 4 ladies promenade one time around get home and you swing
Swing with your man and promenade the ring
That's where we want to go, way down to Kokomo

Arruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take ya (to)
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama with me

Kokomo Lyrics ID: 1031

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

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo

Lyrics by Mike Love, Scott McKenzie, Terry Melcher and John Phillips.
Recorded by The Beach Boys.
