"Coconut Tree" as written by and Gerry Rafferty....
I live under the coconut tree
I lie in the sun and I swim in the sea
I make my bed below the sky
I still watch the world just a passin' me by.

Hey hey, it's good to be free
'Cause they'll never ever find me 'neath the coconut tree.

I left home because of my nagging wife
Man oh man it was a terrible life
She took all my money and she left me with none
So I packed my bags and decided to run.

My wife and family are looking for me
But they'll never ever find me 'neath the coconut tree.

Hey hey, it's good to be free
'Cause they'll never ever find me 'neath the coconut tree.

I live under the coconut tree
I lie in the sun and I swim in the sea
I make my bed below the sky
I still watch the world just a passin' me by.

My wife and family are looking for me
But they'll never ever find me 'neath the coconut tree.
