             [Verse]
             G             C                G
Well, Don Bodden woke and saw saw the lovely day
     G                 C                  D
The breeze was blowin warm and it was calling him to play
     G                Bm        C                   A
He ate some eggs and toast, put on his swimming clothes
   G             A             D          G
Took himself a raft and he headed out to sea

[Verse]
            G         C            G
Well that day was different than most
           G                   C            D
For the waves were crashing hard upon the coast
         G            Bm          C            A
But he paid it never mind, and wasted no more time
  G           C            D           G
Lay upon his raft, and headed out to sea

[Chorus]
     G        F            C          D
Get up, get down to the rhythm of the sea
     G        F                        D
Get up, get down to where the fishes be
 G                        Am          C               A
Let the waves come rollin by as the bright sun rises high
       G              A              C   D    G
Don bodden left his sandals by the coconut tree

[Verse]
         G                   C            G
Once he pass the rough and tumble of the surf
      G                 C                 D
Says he “I’ll off and lay my head down first”
   G              Bm          C               A
Close his tired eyes, and breathe a restful sigh
         G                    C      D         G
As the raft ketch wind and slowly starts to drift.

[Verse]
            G         C            G
As he in sleep, the land begin to shrink
      G                 C             D
The man and raft head eastward in a blink
   G              Bm          C            A
The bustle of Georgetown is very soonly drowned
   G             A             D                 G
By the deep blue splashing sounds of the Endless Drink

[Chorus]
     G        F            C          D
Get up, get down to the rhythm of the sea
     G        F                        D
Get up, get down to where the fishes be
 G                        Am          C               A
Let the waves come rollin by as the bright sun rises high
       G              A              C   D    G
Don bodden left his sandals by the coconut tree

[Verse]
      G                 C               G
The edge of raft got caught upon some rock
      G                  C                 D
So there it stayed while Don went sliding off
    G                  Bm
No more did drift that man
             C               A
For by the Great Creator’s hand
     G             C      D        G
Each one became an island on the spot

[Verse]
            G         C            G
This story tells of how it came to be
      G                 C             D
The land Cayman we know as islands three
     G                Bm        C                   A
For Don became the Brac, and the raft stayed right out back
         G                    C      D         G
Since then Little Cayman’s where she ought to be

[Chorus]
     G        F            C          D
Get up, get down to the rhythm of the sea
     G        F                        D
Get up, get down to where the fishes be
 G                        Am          C               A
Let the waves come rollin by as the bright sun rises high
       G              A              C   D    G
Don bodden left his sandals by the coconut tree

[Outro]
G             A             D          G
