lyrics

Iya livin' on Kaua'i Island, this place is so quiet in the night you only hear the chicken
Er Er ERRRRR was da sound
Er Er ERRRRR was da sound
Er Er ERRRRR was da sound
Er Er ERRRRR was da sound

Well let me tell you about this dream
My mama opened up the car and what I saw was frightening
It was the coqui, a litlle frog from Puerto Rico made his was over to Hawai'i
Only one inch long, but when he open up his mouth he make one gigantic sound…

COQUI! Was da sound!
COQUI! Was da sound, you could hear it all around!
COQUI! Was da sound!
COQUI! Was do sound in a surround sound!

Well I tried to catch the frog
I chased him from the mountains all the way down to the mud bog
The Co qui Frog, I chased the little bugga jus' like I was a hunting dog

COQUI! RUFF RUFF!!
COQUI! RUFF RUFF!!
COQUI! RUFF RUFF!!
COQUI! RUFF RUFF!!

Well I gave chase and I gave chase
And when I finally grabbed the frog, he looked me right in my face
Then it blew my mind, when the frog said, "ER ER ERRRRRRRR!!"
And woke me up from dream time
So I opened my eyes
Lookin' out the window, laughing as I realize
It was just a chicken, who woke me up in the morning on my peaceful Kaua'i Island!

COQUI! (All kine animal sounds)
COQUI! (more)
COQUI! (MORE)
COQUI! (AND MORE)!
