"It please one and all"

I gave my woman a rubber plant
She says, "That sure is elegant
I hate for it to go to waste,
but it's much too soft to suit my taste"

I gave my woman a coconut
She said, "My friend, that is OK but
You know it is no good for me
What good is the nut without the tree?"

I gave my woman some sugar cane
"Sweets for the sweet" I did explain
She handed it back to my surprise
She liked the flavor but not the size

Where is this song from? Trinidad?

I've got this song on my ipod right now. It is one of my favourites, up there with the modern calypso "I want meh rum" sung by Garlin and Hunter.
