lyrics

I sat next to a stranger in the bus station
She didn't offer her name so I had to use my imagination
And guess her opinion on current global situations
The coconut stuck between her teeth didn't ease my concentration

Because my mother never bought me coconuts,
She didn't think I would like them enough

I threw myself at you over the phone
I miss you so much out here but you seem just fine at home
And some people that I meet seem sad and alone
As I eat coconut flakes right from the bag

Cuz my mother never bought me coconuts
She didn't think I would like them enough

I missed a birthday party when I was young
I waited all afternoon for my ride to come
I was so embarrassed but missed by no one
and my mother felt guilty and sad

But she would never buy me coconuts,
She didn't think I would like them enough
