Coconut
Lyrics transcribed by: Brian Whitman
Kevin Raymond
Music transcribed by: Kevin Watson
Scott Holcomb
two ways to do Mikey's signature Coconut riff:
|-----------------------------|----------------------------|
|-----------------------------|-------8---6-5-6-5-6-5------|
|-----------------------------|-----7-----------------7-5--|
|-------5---3-2-3-2-3-2-------|---5------------------------|
|-----5-----------------5-3---|----------------------------|
|---3-------------------------|----------------------------|
    G       C                     G       C

This riff is used all over the place, so just listen and
toss it in whenever you think it's appropriate.  When it
moves up to the key of A, move the above riffs up 2 frets.

G
I like coconuts
        C
You can break them open
                       G                  C
They smell like ladies lying in the sun

        C
You can break them open
                       G                  C
They smell like ladies lying in the sun
D                      D-C
And if I had my way

I'd give a coconut to everyone
G (arp)               C (arp) x2
G
I got a friend named Jack

  C'mon Jack, smell these coconuts
                   G          C
There's enough for everyone

Jackie likes the smell of cut grass

He'd give a cold drink to everyone

A
Gonna follow my nose to where the coconut grows
