Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid for the lime
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank ’em both up
Lime in the coconut, she drank ’em both up
Put the line in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up

Said doctor
Ain’t there nothing I can take?
Oh doctor
To relieve this bellyache
I said
Doctor ain’t there nothing I can take
Oh doctor
To relieve this bellyache

Now let me get this straight

You put the lime in the coconut, you drunk ’em both up
Put a lime in the coconut, you drank ’em both up
Lime and cocnut, drank ’em up
You put a lime in the coconut, you called the doctor, woke him up

Said doctor
Ain’t there nothing I can take?
Oh doctor
To relieve this bellyache
I said
Doctor ain’t there nothing I can take
Oh doctor
To relieve this bellyache

You put the line in the coconut and drink ’em both together
Put a lime in the coconut, yeah you’ll feel better
Lime and coconut drink ’em down
You put a lime in the coconut and call me in the morning

Oh brother bought a coconut he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one she paid it for the lime
She put a lime in the coconut she drank ’em both up
Put a lime in the coconut she called the doctor
Woke him up

Said doctor

Oh doctor
To relieve this bellyache
I said
Doctor ain’t there nothing I can take

Oh doctor

You put the line in the coconut and drink ’em both together
Put a lime in the coconut, yeah you’ll feel better
Lime and coconut, swallow ’em whole
Put a lime in the coconut
