Lyrics

Coconut woman is calling out
And everyday you can hear her shout
Coconut woman is calling out
And everyday you can hear her shout


Get your coconut water,
Man it's good for your daughter,
Coco got a lotta iron,
Make you strong like a lion, 

   

A lady tell me the other day
No one can take her sweet man away
I ask her what was the mystery
She say coconut water and rice curry


You can cook it in a pot,
You can serve it very hot,
Coco got a lotta iron,
Make you strong like a lion,  

 

Coconut woman says you'll agree
coconut make very nice candy
The thing that's best if you're feelin' glum
Is coconut water with a little rum


It could make you very tipsy,
Make you feel like a gypsy,
Coco got a lotta iron,
Make you strong like a lion,
