    Lyrics

    Brother bought a coconut
    He bought it for a dime.
    His sister had another one *
    She trade it for the lime.

    She put the lime in the coconut
    she drank them both up.
    x3

    she put the lime in the coconut
    she called the doctor, woke him up, and said
    "Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take"
    I said, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
    I said, "Doctor ain't there nothing I can take"
    I said, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

    Now let me get this straight;
    You put the lime in the coconut
    You drank them both up
    You put the lime in the coconut,
    You drank them both up
    put the lime in the coconut,
    you drank them both up
    put the lime in the coconut,
    called your doctor, woke him up, and said,

    "Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take"
    I said, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
    I said, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take"
    I said, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

    You put the lime in the coconut, you drink them both together,
    put the lime in the cocount, then you'll feel better.
    Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both up,
    Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning."

    Brother bought a coconut
    He bought it for a dime.
    His sister had another one *
    She paid it for the lime.

    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, ain't there nothing I can take"
    I said, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
    I said, "Doctor ain't there nothing I can take"
    I said, "Doctor"

    Now let me get this straight;
    You put the lime in the coconut
    You drank them both up
    put the lime in the coconut,
    You drink them both up
    put the lime in the coconut, *
    you drink them both up
    put the lime in the coconut, *
    you're such a silly woman,
    put a lime in the coconut,
    and drink them both together,
    put the lime in the coconut,
    then you'll feel better.
    put the lime in the coconut,
    drink them both down,
    put the lime in the coconut,
    and call me in the morning

    Ooh, ain't there nothing you can take *
    I said oooh to relieve your belly ache *
    You say all oooh ain't there nothing i can take *
    I said oooh to relieve your belly ache *

    You say yaaah ain't there nothing i can take *
    I said wow to relieve this belly ache *
    I said doctor ain't there nothing i can take *
    x3
    i said don't know *
    you're such a silly woman *

    Put the lime in the coconut *
    and drink them both together *
    Put the lime in the coconut *
    then you feel better *
    Put the lime in the coconut *
    and drink them both up *
    Put the lime in the coconut *
    and call me in the moooorning *

    Yes, you call in the morning *
    If you call me in the morning *
    I tell you what to do *
    If you call me in the morning *
    I tell you what to do ... *

      This song is an awesome generation-gap filler. Me (48), daughter (21) and grandson (3) have huge fun with it.
      It's also a massive source of "mondegreens" in our family. E.g. "you put the lion in the coconut you drink the boat up."
      Yeehah!
