Lyrics

My Oh My it’s so warm in the sun.
I’m sitting  in the sun with my coconut rum.
Wonder why the people live their lives at a run.
But Digging in the sand with my toes ain’t much fun.

But, Fortunately, I’ve got my coconut tree.
So I’ve got plenty of coconuts for me to see.

My Oh My I can only stay for a week.
Working for a living ‘s going to make me freak.
Whiling away the time as the day passes by.
Watching the birds in the blue sky fly.

But, Fortunately, I’ve got my coconut tree.
So I’ve got plenty of coconuts for me to see.
Plenty of coconuts for me to see.

My Oh My they’re from the coconut tree.
Ideas that we imagine are completely free.
We use them or we lose ’em it’s an endless supply.
Set your mind to wander, let it sour far and wide.

Cause, Fortunately, I’ve got my coconut tree.
So I’ve got plenty of coconuts for me to see.

My, Oh My, I can escape with low tech,
Sitting in the office with my feet on the desk.
I can close my eyes and be far away.
Palm trees and sand, It’s a beautiful day.

Cause, Fortunately, I’ve got my coconut tree.
So I’ve got plenty of coconuts for me to see.
Plenty of coconuts for me to see.
