about

Another collaboration between Jenny and Louie. Jenny had a beachy riff that wouldn't leave her head but was just that...a riff...that Louie was hearing every.day. Hotsy Totsy played a beach gig and Jenny and Louie made a weekend of it. When they came home, he handed her a page of lyrics and said, I think this is that riff you've been playing. And he was right. This song is also where the album title comes from. Louie's lyric is, "pineapples that don't come in a can"...you know what that is? Fresh Pineapple. ;)

lyrics

A typical breeze carries the sound
Of the South Seas
Through a window in my mind
It's calling me down to the land of

The hula doll skirts softly swaying
Where the porpoises flirt
Along the sunset shoreline
Music playing me back in time oh

Come on baby let's go, oh
Back to the land where the coconuts grow
Come on baby let's dance
By the light of the moon to the sounds of the steel drum band
Sha la la

Drinks with tiny umbrellas
Beautiful ladies (so beautiful)
Handsome fellas barefoot in the sand
All promenading, no worries man oh

Come on baby let's go, oh
Back to the land where the coconuts grow
Come on baby let's dance
By the light of the moon to the sounds of the steel drum band

I can feel the tradewinds blow
They whisper sweetly darling, won't you hurry on home
Hurry on back to your island home oh

Come on baby let's go, oh/Tiki huts by the sand
Back to the land where the coconuts grow
Come on baby (let's dance)
Pineapples that don't come in a can
Sha la la ain't life grand
In the land where the coconuts grow
It's time to go home
Sha la la
Ooh sha la la
Mmmmm
