There is a tale that the island people tell,
Don't care if it is true
Because I love so well
Jolly mon sing for his supper every night
The people fed him well
Cause he treated them so right

Oh Jolly mon sing,
Oh make a rhyme ring

And they wanted him to sing on the island
Near and far,
He always found his way by Orion lucky star
He'd tell them of their joys
And he'd tell them of their woes
They love to see him come
They hate to see him go

Oh Jolly mon sing
Oh make the music ring

He was making his way home on a dark and stormy night,
When he a heard a cry for help
He saw a flashing light
When he reached the other boat and offered them a hand
They said, "Give us all your cargo."
As they took a pirate stand

Oh Jolly mon sing
Oh give them everything

Jolly mon its over sing you're 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 on board don't let go

Ooh jolly mon sing
Oh make the ocean's ring

The night was filled with magic they bid the sea goodbye
They swam into the heavens they stayed up in the sky
And all the island people when they wish upon a star
See the dolphin and the jolly mon to tell them where they are

Oh jolly mon sing
Oh make the heavens ring

Oh jolly mon sing
Oh make the magic ring

Oh jolly mon sing
