Coconut
Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
Put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
Put the lime with a coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up and said

Doctor, is there nothin' I can take
I say, doctor, to relieve this bellyache?
I say, doctor, is there nothin' I can take
I say, doctor, to relieve this bellyache?

I said, now let me get this straight
Put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up and said

Doctor, is there nothing I can take
I said, Doctor, to relieve this bellyache?
I said, Doctor (Doctor?), is there nothin' I can take
I said, Doctor (Dooooctor?), to relieve this bellyache?

You put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both together
Put the lime in the coconut, and you feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you call me in the morning

Whoo-whoo-whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh, whoo-ooh-ooh
Whoo-whoo-whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh, whoo-ooh-ooh
Whoo-whoo-whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh, whoo-ooh-ooh
Whoo-whoo-whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh, whoo-ooh-ooh

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
And put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up she said

Doctor, is there nothin' I can take
I said, Doctor, to relieve this bellyache?
I said, Doctor, is there nothin' I can take?
I said, Doctor

Now let me get this straight
You put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you're such a silly woman

Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both together
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both down
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning

Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo, is there nothin' I can take
I say, whoo-whoo, to relieve this bellyache
I say, whoo-whoo, is there nothing I can take
I say, whoo-whoo, to relieve this bellyache
I say ahhh-ahhh, is there nothin' I can take
I say ahhh-ahhh, to relieve this bellyache

I say, Doctor, is there nothin' I can take?
I say, Doctor, to relieve this bellyache
I say, Doctor, is there nothin' I can take?
I say, Doctor, you're such a silly woman

Put the lime in the coconut, you drink them both together
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the mo-o-o-o-orning

Yes, the morning, I tell you what to do,
You call me in the morning, I'll tell you what to do
If you call me in the morning, I'll tell you what to do
If you call me in the morning, I'll tell you what to do
If you call me in the morning, I'll tell you what to do
If you call me in the morning, I'll tell you what to do
