Coconut 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 drank 'em bot' up

    You chew on the cocoleafs and spit them out.
    You drink the rest with the juice of the lemon to prevent stomachpain.

    I have found three answers that seem sorta plausible:

    1) one stated it was the feeling of morning sickness as the lime causes the coconut milk to sour...and this was a prostitute continuing to engage in her hedonistic behavior and repeatedly getting pregnant.

    2) a slang term for using marijuana..with its reggae beat, I'd say this could be true

    3) a cure for a hangover

    Having tried this and only getting a stomachache from it, I'd say you'd want to call the doctor...it tasted wonderful, but made you very sick after!
