The Coconut Tree

On the isle of a big, blue sea,
I see, I see, I see,
Sat alone, a coconut tree,
I see, I see, I see,
Growing branches in summer's spree,
I see, I see, I see,
It's fruits it bore in sets of threes,
I see, I see, I see,
And sat under this lonely tree,
I see, I see, I see,
Was a bearded man, sick of sea,
I see, I see, I see,
With head on tree, and chest on knee,
I see, I see, I see,
Beyond horizon, he did see,
I see, I see, I see,
To a place that would set him free,
I see, I see, I see,
But like the tree, he wasn't free,
I see, I see, I see,
And sunset came, in night's decree,
I see, I see, I see,
And so he said, "Let's wait and see,
I see, I see, I see
whatever comes, I'll be, I'll be."
To see, to see, to see...
