In the style of

Harry Nilsson

Lyrics

brother bought
a coconut
he bought it
for the dime
his sister
hide another one
she paid it
for the lime

she put the lime
in the coconut
she drank 'em both up
she put the lime
in the coconut
she drank 'em both up

she put the lime
in the coconut
she drank 'em 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 bellyache
i said doctor

ain't there nothin'
i can take
i said doctor
to relieve
this bellyache

now let me
get this straight
you put the lime
in the coconut
you drank 'em both up

put the lime
in the coconut
you drank 'em both up
put the lime
in the coconut
you drank 'em both up

put the lime
in the coconut
you called
your doctor
woke him up
said doctor

ain't there nothin'
i can take
i said doctor
to relieve
this bellyache
i said doctor

ain't there nothin'
i can take
i said doctor
to relieve
this bellyache

you put the lime
in the coconut
you drink 'em
both together
put the lime
in the coconut
and you'll feel better

put the lime
in the coconut
drink 'em both up
put the lime
in the coconut
and call me
in the mornin'
