Lyrics

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 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 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 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, you called your 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?
