Foy Vance - Coco Lyrics




Coco, what do you know?
Do you know that the hills are covered in snow
Where does it come from and where does it go
Tell me do you know, Coco?

Coco, what do you know?
Do you know why the workmen are digging that hole?
Making a mess of every single road
Tell me do you know, Coco?

You don’t know where the whales go in the water
You don’t know why in space there’s no such thing as time
But you know every girl is someone’s daughter
And your daddy must be proud
Well I’d be proud if you were mine

Coco, what do you know?
Do you know all about the trains of old?
Well they only moved when they burned up coal
Tell me do you know, Coco?

You don’t know where the whales go in the water
You don’t know why in space there’s no such thing as time
But you know every girl is someone’s daughter
And your daddy must be proud
Well I’d be proud if you were mine

Coco, what do you know?
Do you know what happens to your very soul?
Where does it come from
Where does it go
Tell me do you know, Coco?

Foy Vance Coco Comments
  1. Dennis DeMille

    I sang this song Acaleppa at an audition about 3 years ago and it got me to the next stage of a TV talent show. I think they liked the fact that I didn’t go with something that they had heard before. I connected to the song because it was written about a 12 yr old girl and my daughter was the same age, so I understood what it meant. Great job Foy!

  2. Mizé Fernandes

    Beautiful song!!

  3. john walker

    Goddamn Foy is awesome!

  4. Kieran Dacey

    Love the rawness and simplicity to your music. Very strong and direct output. Brill!

  39. Sand Ville

    Hey Foy!
    What a beautiful song, thank you! Is the girl in the Video a young actress or the real Coco?

    Cheers man and keep the great music up!

    Em Dee

    Her name is really Coco and she's Courtney Cox's daughter.

  40. Connor Buckingham

    That Needtobreathe shirt though.

    Siva Vadlamani

    Are you royalty?

    Caleb Gray

    Yeahhhh boi love some rhineharts

  41. Jennifer Leonard

    does she seem incredibly young to be a love interest? or did I miss something in the song?

    Gerard McEvoy

    she's the daughter of a friend.

    Aimee

    Did you miss the lyrics of the song? His singing about about all the things "coco" doesn't yet know about the world and then saying he'd be proud to be her father. Why would the video be about a love interest? It's obvious his singing to a child it's not a song about romance.

    Jennifer Leonard

    Amy R totally missed that.

    Ryan .Gordon

    Courtney Cox daughter to be exact..

  42. Kirsty nicole

    im still sticking with cinderalla by steven curtis chapman for my daddy daughter dance

  43. johanna cannella

    where are that kid's parents?

    George A. Raggett

    JJustJJ central perk

    Cookie R.

    Her Mom, Courteney Cox, is directing the video.

    prywatnewalsh

    with Ghostface :P

  44. Elizabeth Davis

    What a weird celebutante indulgence of a terribly bland song, plain jane young girl with two famous freaks for parents pushing her. Weird! I hope the kid escapes asap!

  45. Mike Scully

    I really dig the sound of this tune. "Coco what do you know"Smooth AF!
    I'm a singersongwriter myself. Check out my latest video called "The Way You Don't". You won't be sorry.

  46. Richard Gallaher

    You never cease to amaze me with the range of your singing Foy. You're awesome!

  47. Hillary Lixey

    aww she's beautiful! love this song :)

  48. anonyme's

  49. Lais Fagundes

    Coco, what do you know?
    Do you know that the hills are covered in snow
    Where does it come from and where does it go
    Tell me do you know, Coco?

    [Verse 2: Foy Vance]
    Coco, what do you know?
    Do you know why the workmen are digging that hole?
    Making a mess of every single road
    Tell me do you know, Coco?

    [Chorus: Foy Vance]
    You don’t know where the whales go in the water
    You don’t know why in space there’s no such thing as time
    But you know every girl is someone’s daughter
    And your daddy must be proud
    Well I’d be proud if you were mine

    [Verse 3: Foy Vance]
    Coco, what do you know?
    Do you know all about the trains of old?
    Well they only moved when they burned up coal
    Tell me do you know, Coco?

    [Chorus: Foy Vance]
    You don’t know where the whales go in the water
    You don’t know why in space there’s no such thing as time
    But you know every girl is someone’s daughter
    And your daddy must be proud
    Well I’d be proud if you were mine

    [Verse 4: Foy Vance]
    Coco, what do you know?
    Do you know what happens to your very soul?
    Where does it come from
    Where does it go
    Tell me do you know, Coco

    memi Selfandi

    Coco's half in Malibu, lol

    Xi Gilli

    It looks like it was filmed entirely at venues in the UK. The beach-y bits look like Blackpool (north-west England). Some of it looks like London. GOD, I miss England, and the UK, SO terribly! Especially Hilton, Huntingdon, and Cambridge, where all my mates and chosen family are!!! xxxoooxoxox

    Em Dee

    The little girl Coco was in Santa Monica. You can see the pier with the ferris wheel and roller coaster at 1:32 when she's riding her bike and she's under the pier in the next scene. Santa Monica California.

    Dawn Bunting

    foy vance parts were all filmed in Edinburgh.

    Evelyn Bell

    Foy's side was all filmed in my home city of Edinburgh, Coco's in Santa Monica

    Smelly cat, smelly cat

    smelly cat, smelly cat
    it's not your fault.

    Why is this putting me to sleep...?!

    Matthew Singh-Dosanjh

    Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
