Got a vibe from this lyrically. Also sounds like a fun song for a children's film or other production.

Lyrics

LIKE A COCONUT
(Words and Music by Michael W. Avery)

In a saloon down by the lagoon, I met Simoon one afternoon
He was a pan man, played in a steel drum band
He was Dominican, a real artisan

He knew the right words, sang like a mockingbird
The lyrics were absurd, he was undeterred
"Develop thick skin, learn from where you been
You go all-in in a hurricane"

Like a coconut
Like a coconut


He said "Listen, you don't know what you're missing.
Let the marimba keys set your mind at ease
Let your spirit float on the ocean breeze
You're over twenty-one, you can do as you please."

Like a coconut washed up on the beach
You can find that which you cannot reach

Like a coconut

Soursop, coconut, mango and lime
Enjoy yourself, it is no crime

Make the best of the worst, laugh it up
Take a cup and drink it up
