Cannonball Lyrics
Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo Ahoo
Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell...crash
On the last splash
I know you, little libertine
I know you're a real koo koo

Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball (twice)
In the shade (4 X)

I know you, little libertine
I know you're a cannonball
I'll be your whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song

Hey now, hey now,...
In the shade (4x)
Want you, kookoo, cannonball (2x)

Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell...crash
On the last splash
I'll be your whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song

Hey now, hey now,...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball (twice)
In the shade (4 X)
