Lyrics

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 drink 'em both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drink 'em both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drink 'em both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she call the doctor, woke him up, say

Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Doctor! To relieve this bellyache, I say
Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Doctor! To relieve this bellyache

Now let me get this staight

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 call the Doctor, woke him up, say

Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Doctor! To relieve this bellyache, I say
Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
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 feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning

Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

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 'em both up
And put the lime in the coconut, she call the Doctor, woke him up, say

Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Doctor! To relieve this bellyache, I say
Doctor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Doctor! Now let me get this straihgt

You put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put a lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, You're such a silly woman

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

Woo, woo, Ain't there nothin' you can take, I say
Woo, woo, To relieve your bellyache, you say
Woo, woo, Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Woo, woo, To relieve your bellyache, you say

Yah, yah, Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Waa, Waa, To relieve this bellyache, I say
Docktor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Docktor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Docktor! Ain't there nothin' I can take, I say
Docktor! You're such a silly woman

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

Yes, you call me in the morning
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
{Repeat to fade}
