Orlando sent me this song, with the note: "This is a tease song when some one is staggering drunk; we sing this song to let him know we don't approve of his abuse of alcohol and the way he presents himself in public. The coconut is symbolic to being stupid and hard-headed. And when the trade winds blow thru these trees you can imagine a wild, bushy-haired drunken man walking."
