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

    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!
