Written by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Don’t Stop The Carnival (1998)

Lyrics:

/Ensemble
Hippolyte, Hippolyte Lamartine Handiest Frenchman in da Caribbean Got the Gull Reef Club sparkling and clean Bravo bon travou Mr. Martine / Who patch the hole in the cistern wall Hippolyte Who solved my problems one and all Hippolyte A genie in a bottle twenty feet tall Hippolyte, Hippolyte Lamartine / How come mine host is sitting pretty A cistern full of water and shekels in the kitty

A million miles away from nasty New York City

/ Hippolyte, Hippolyte Lamartine Hippolyte, Hippolyte Lamartine Hippolyte, Hippolyte Lamartine

/
Get back to work
Or he’ll chop you like sardines Merci
Hippolyte Lamartine
