lyrics

COCONUT JIVE
Went down to the neighborhood bar
there were ladies by the score
shook my head and I couldn’t decide
which one I wanted more
so I asked the closest to me
can I take you from this dive
she looked at me and calmly said
“don’t you hand me that Coconut Jive”

Coconut Jive
ain’t enough to keep a girl alive
Coconut Jive, hey you
come on, baby don’t hand me that Coconut Jive

Found myself an ocean girl
I thought I had it made
had our Planter’s Punch beneath
a palm tree in the shade
I said lets go to my place
it wasn’t far to drive
she thanked me for her drink and said
“I’ve had enough Coconut Jive”

Tried my luck some hours later
called her on the phone
said this balmy moonlit night’d be
wasted on my own
she said to come on over
invited me inside
and then she whispered in my ear
“how I love that Coconut Jive”

Coconut Jive
ain’t enough to keep a girl alive
Coconut Jive, hey you
come on baby don’t hand me that Coconut Jive
come on baby don’t hand me that Coconut Jive
come on baby don’t hand me that Coconut Jive d. mularz
