Everybody's got a place they go
When the old battery gets running low
I'm a sucker for the sand and sea, yea
If I had my way, hey I'd always be

Way up high in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut tree

Not to green, not too brown
I shimmy up and I shake the good ones down
Coconuts, a couple of bucks a piece
And you can do alright if you ain't afraid to be

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

Yeah, there's less stress and the world's alright
It's a different point of view
When you're looking at life

Way up high in a coconut tree
(Layin' low) low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

High in a coconut tree
Layin' low, just my baby and me
Sunny skies as far as I can see
High in a coconut tree

Layin' low, just my baby and me (Sunny skies as far as I can see)
High in a coconut tree

Sunny skies as far as I can see
High up in a coconut tree
Up here with Willie
Sunny skies as far as I can see
Let's get high in a coconut tree
