E                C#m               Ab   A
  I was swimmin' in the Carribean
E                C#m             Ab     A
  Animals were hiding behind the rock
E                 C#m
  Except a little fish
           Ab      
  But they told me, he swears
           A
  Tryin ta talk to me,  coy koi...  *<--haha fish pun...*

E            C#m 
 Where is my mind?
Ab           A
