16-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I know of a place po -ets write a -bout, An is -land of dreams they de -light a -bout,
Where the birds on high sing a song to us, And the earth and sky be -long to us;
There's a grove of palm trees grow -ing by the sea, Beck -on -ing to you and me:
There's a co -coa -nut grove where life is en -tranc -ing, And there sweet -heart, we'll find ro -manc -ing,
And love for two, By the light of a south -sea is -land moon;
There's a co -coa -nut grove where your hap -py lov -er will do his part, And soon dis -cov -er,
A ren -dez -vous, In the shel -ter of a trop -i -cal la -goon;
Palm trees will be sway -ing, While steel gui -tars are play -ing;
Be -lieve what I'm say -ing, Dear, I swear it's true;
There's a co -coa -nut grove where I'll be con -fess -ing the sim -ple truth that you've been guess -ing,
Sweet -heart, I love but you.
