Lyrics

Coco
Coco
Hoping too high
Fell down from the sky
And started to cry
It’s the end of Coco, Coco
Where is a friend
To trust and depend upon?

Scan the hills
Rake the sky
But your searching won’t end
‘Til you try
To learn to turn to
Someone who’s called Coco, Coco, Coco
Could be the end of Coco, Coco

Go find a friend
You can trust and depend upon
Scan the hills
Rake the sky
But your searching won’t end
‘Til you try
To learn to turn to
Someone who’s called Coco, Coco, Coco
