Lyrics[]

Now, coconut is good for eating,
(Tina Bond) - "Rabbit's food is good for luck."
(Stephanie Lawrence) - "Swimming is good for my figure."
Have you never had a look at a duck?

If you want to save money on our island,
And cut down on your petra bill,
You must add little tiny wheels to the front of your car,
And you'll always be going downhill.

Oh, you can drink coconut milk,
Coconut butter is as smooth as silk,
And when we meet in the middle of the desert as well,
We dance to the rhythm of the coconut shells.
 
Now, my wife has had seventeen husbands,
Including four of her own,
Last week was our anniversary so just before I left home,
I wrote her a check for one thousand kisses,
Just as daylight was dawning,
I got back that night,
She said, “Your check was just right,
"Because the milkman cashed it this morning.”

Oh, you can drink coconut milk,
Coconut butter is as smooth as silk,
And when we meet in the middle of the desert as well,
We dance to the rhythm of the coconut shells.
 
Now, my wife’s one in a million
How often have you heard that said?
But my wife’s not one in a million,
She looks like she’s won in a raffle instead.

Now, she’s oh so fat, I made her promise that,
She would run ten miles everyday,
And if she starts soon by the end of June,
She’ll be four hundred miles away.
 
Oh, you can drink coconut milk,
Coconut butter is as smooth as silk,
And when we meet in the middle of the desert as well,
We dance to the rhythm of the coconut shells.
