lyrics

Verse 1:
Chunjay:
I’m not a dope rapper, I play one on CD
Been writing booty lyrics since 1993
If I date myself I’d like some wine and cheese
Candlelight dinner, invite this young lady

Flatline:
I’m a dapper catch you can call me mahi mahi
I’ll run the seamen’s boat, just you try to stop me

Chunjay:
Ever since I met her, I had this frame of mind
My mental is a goner with these pictures in rewind
Like VHS at Blockbuster won’t you be so kind
Two by two into the ark we will populate and bind

Flatline:
All the different shades all the different ways
All the different grays in a fuego kinda blaze
I feel the fire’s power think I got a little burned
A tiny little spark from those lips as they upturn

Chunjay:
Up up and away, I’m Sooperman* Chunjay
I’m flying in the sky, high on this new bae
[*Chunjay’s original rapper name in junior high]

Chorus 1:
Co-co-co-co-co-co-co-coconuts
Co-co-co-co-co-co-co-coconuts

Flatline, Chorus 2:
I’m into this new girl she’s funny and she’s chill
Don’t make a lot of money, she don’t got a lot of bills
Like the nape and her necklace I’d like to caress this
Simple sexy cute she got no need to impress this

Chunjay, Chorus 3:
I’m into this new girl she’s funny and she’s chill
Listens to my raps digs the choruses and fills
I’m sending Ruckus rhythms right down her block
Me be to she what key be to lock

Verse 2:
Flatline:
Summer of cicadas we went down to sandy beaches
We were making all the noise we were soaking up sun reaches
Ethical fajitas in Chipotle’s dining room
Six bucks won my heart with salsa number two

Chunjay:
Guacamole’s extra, not everything is cheaper
Liking her online, Instagram a creeper
We went to Grouch & Eligh, watched them tear it up
Vodka and a lime and club soda in her cup
We walked across the tracks squeezed the juices out of life
We made minute maid out of twists and of the strife

Flatline:
My girl is all the bestest, laughs and all the restest
Took her out for tacos, out in Austin, Texas
This girl has got me crazy, the chemistry amazing
Coconuts and vodka, liquor don’t phase me

Chunjay:
Better living through chemistry I call it love tazing
Cupid and his arrows got us seriously love dazing

Verse 3:
Chunjay:
That was the Co-co-chorus hookah lounging over there
We spent all of our time, drinking Buddha beer
They say that time is money so I closed out my account
And gave it all to her in large unmarked amounts

Flatline:
White envelopes for lovers, don’t forget to lick the stamp
Plant your feet facing forward toward your lovers little camp

Chunjay:
Make like a tree and get your coconuts for free
Eat the meaty flesh drink the milk upon your knees

Flatline:
The bird gets the worm but the squirrel gets dees nuts
It’s not what you’re thinking it’s just my puns all get the butt

Chunjay:
Punny you should say but my girl don’t even play
She’s not that kinda girl got me using my long game
Strong to the finich I make her garlic spinach
I read up on the labels she likes to know what’s in it
I cook her grass-fed steaks put some meat upon her ribs

Flatline:
Maybe you’ll make babies and put kids up in them cribs
