about

The Beach Balls did it again! They release their second single: Coconut, No Coconut (How I Wish It Was Christmas). A sunny song that sounds deceptively simple, but isn't. Again. They just wish it wasn't that time of year in a tongue in cheek way. Again. It sticks in your ears and brain. Again. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves making it. Again. Still it sounds totally different. Yeah, mon! Give it a listen and enjoy. The perfect musical company to anyone's summer.

Coconut, No Coconut by The Beach Balls was released on Pilota de Platja Records in June 2017.

about

The Beach Balls Dordrecht, Netherlands

Both members of The Beach Balls have been writing and making music for decades. They've just never done it together, before now. Although some say that them not working together was a brilliant idea and the universe wishes things had stayed that way, they both thoroughly enjoyed the cooperation and are actually quite satisfied with the result.
Music lovers beware: they might even do it again.

Track Name: Coconut, No Coconut (How I Wish It Was Christmas)
I'm sittin on the beach
Sand between my toes
Underneath the palm trees
Life is easy at it goes

- repeat -

You would think that I'm in heaven
That I'm a lucky man
But, you know, this is hell boy
And don't you understand
Why I say

[Chorus]
How I wish it was Christmas
Instead of July
I'm aching with sunburn
Too much light in my eye
I hate the daily hangovers
Don't want to dance every night
And the girls in bikinis
How they fill me with fright
So I say

No coconut, no coconut but mistletoe
(How I wish it was Christmas)
No sand, no beach, no sun, no waves but only snow
(How I wish it was Christmas)
Coconut, no coconut (how i wish)
Coconut, no coconut no coconut (how i wish)
Christmas

- Breakdown -

I look silly in a swimsuit
Too white and too fat
When it's too hot to put your clothes on
You just cannot hide that

- repeat -

And so suddenly the office
Where a man can wear a suit
And especially in winter
It's surprisingly good,
So I say

How I wish it was Christmas
Instead of July
I'm aching with sunburn
Too much light in my eye
I hate the daily hangovers
Don't want to dance every night
And the girls in bikinis
How they fill me with fright
So I say

No coconut, no coconut but mistletoe
(How I wish it was Christmas)
No sand, no beach, no sun, no waves but only snow
(How I wish it was Christmas)
Coconut, no coconut (how i wish)
Coconut, no coconut no coconut (how i wish)
Christmas

No coconut, no coconut but mistletoe
(How I wish it was Christmas)
No sand, no beach, no sun, no waves but only snow
(How I wish it was Christmas)
Coconut, no coconut (how i wish)
Coconut, no coconut no coconut (wish)
Christmas
