Find a Conversation

I teach 4th grade. I have a student who talks all the time. Sometimes it's an actual conversation with another student. But, most of the time, it's just him saying whatever thought crosses his mind at the time. It would not be as big of a deal except he is EXTREMELY loud! I swear you can hear him in the hallway when the door is closed. Yesterday I wanted the duct tape SOOOO badly! LOL!
Most of his teachers in the past, as well as his mom, have decided that this can't be controlled and have overlooked it or just given warning after warning after warning. Next year, in 5th grade, he will be in a LOT of trouble for this behavior. And, I think he will end up hating 5th grade and/or school. Any ideas on how I can help this kid learn self control and stop SHOUTING out every thought that crosses through his mind before next year?
