Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another, she paid it for a lime.
She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut,
Called the doctor, woke him up, and said,
"Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

"Now let me get this straight;
You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
You put the lime in the coconut,
called your doctor, woke him up, and said,
'Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?'

You put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both down,
You put the lime in the cocount, you're such a silly woman!
Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both together,
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning."

Ohh I agree it looks good on this background too! But I thought it popped more on the lighter one. On this one the lime still pops but the coconut is a little bit more downplayed, whereas on the bright blue I felt both the lime and the coconut really popped. I still like it though... or else I wouldn't have bought it!

In general a great, simple, clever shirt no matter what color it is on!

This gonna be as close as you can get. I don't think there was any reference to a pina colada for anyone's design... But it seems we're getting dreadfully close to selling out here. Grats on less than 2 hr sell out Zeusandhera!

Absolutely adore the song. It's cute.

Hate this shirt however. What in the world? What is it coming to? How did this take any talent to create? I'm absolutely baffled by this. If anyone were to walk by me wearing this shirt, I'd roll my eyes. It conveys a message of "duhhhhhhhhhhhh".

My first shirt.woot! There's been 2 or 3 I wanted but they sold out before I could get 'em.... I agree that a lighter background would have been nicer but I'm not complaining, the design is sweet! I can understand that some people don't like it that's what makes us all different (blah blah blah) but to bash the design for being too simple is just silly!

It worked for Andy Warhol...

Damn you, woot! I had sworn off t-shirts years ago. Then I discovered you a few months ago...and my collection grows. As my bank account shrinks.

And now I'll have an ear-worm to sing me to sleep as well.

My first woot shirt ever. I'm in for two (two different sizes)! I wasn't sure how they fit but I liked the design so much I wanted to make sure I could wear at least one of them! And this song is one of the greatest! I put the lime in the coconut ...and now I'm going to put myself into bed!

Really?? I am in the same boat. I like this shirt (although the first thing I thought was lighter shirt color would be better, with a beachy shirt like this) and thought 2am wasnt tooo bad. Damn ....

I don't like Reservoir Dogs or Tarantino.

BUT I do have this song...I think on I also may have had (and still have) it on a 45 when I was in Kindergarten! Now people will ask, "What is a 45?"

I got home at 2am last night, log on, and it's sold out. I went to bed a bit disappointed, because I really wanted this shirt.

It's kinda sad that if you desperately want a Derby shirt Woot offers you have to plan your whole night around it, because they sell out so quickly. When I start planning my nights around an online T-Shirt site, I need to reorganize my priorites.

I think my buddies would have more than a few unkind words for me if at the bar I said, "Hey guys, I need to be home by 1am, the first place Woot Derby shirt gets posted and I really want it.".

Also, I just simply flat out refuse to pay $15 for any shirt Woot offers.

Looks like no shirt for you then. That's their sales model. It works, apparently not for you, but for everyone else.

click the "sad rat" advert post [it should be first, but may be a few posts after]. that's where the list for the still available shirts are.
