Jimmy Buffett Domino College Lyrics

Last updated:

By: Jimmy Buffett, Dan Fogelberg
1986
Found myself a matchbook
Beside some hotel bed
Opened it up and looked inside
And this is what it said

Chorus:
Get on back to school
Domino college, back to school
Boneyard full of knowledge
W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation
Back to school (going back to school, going back, back to school)

Fly down to Miami
Get yourself a boat
Fill it full of suntan oil
And rent yourself a goat

Ain't no registration
Ain't no student loan
You may not learn to read or write
But you will surely learn to roll dem bones

Chorus:
Get on back to school
Domino college, back to school
Boneyard full of knowledge
W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation
Back to school (going back to school, going back, back to school)

They don't rap your knuckles
If you cut the class
They just track you through the jungle boy
Then they kick your ass

It's a different kind of domino theory
They teach you down in Butler town
If you lose you buy the booze
And then the student body all falls down

Chorus:
They can't get back to school
Domino college, back to school
Fountain of knowledge
W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation
Back to school (going back, back to school)
Get on back

Make your parents hate you
Be a big disgrace
Act just like a domino
And fall on your face

Chorus:
You can't get back to school
Domino college, back to school
Fountain of knowledge
There ain't no graduation from this kind of education
Back to school (going back, back to school)
W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation
Back to school (going back, back to school)

Be true to your school

-- Spoken:
"Oh, Jan & Dean be true to your school. Big six, big six, whose got it? Goddamn Robert when you gonna play man, hey man, say, you know whose turn it is."

Coda:
Back to school (going back to school) repeat and fade
