I think these two funny reggae songs are old. Does anyone know the song titles and artists, who are both men? Below are most of the lyrics to both of them. Thanks for your reply.

Every day by the marketplace she comes strolling by.
The tie-dye T-shirt that she wears, oh it catch me eye.
She touch, she feels, she stokes, she rubs
Things that I got to sell, but she never buy a thing.
So one day I start to yell:

I let you stoke my banana,
I let you feel my coconuts,
Why can't I squeeze your tomatoes?
Why can't I squeeze your tomatoes?
I let you taste my casaba,
And everything else that I got,
Why can't I squeeze those tomatoes?
Why can't I squeeze those tomatoes?

Then I see her at a dance,
Doing what I need,
I figure this could be my chance to rub up close to she.
I just about to make my move when she push me away.
The she look me in the eye and here is what she say:
You let me stroke your banana,
You let me me feel your coconuts,
You don't squeeze these tomatoes,
You don't squeeze these tomatoes.
You let me taste your casaba, and everything else you got,
But you don't squeeze these tomatoes,
You don't squeeze these tomatoes.

Now listen girl, take my advice for I'm a produce man,
You better put those things to use, any way you can.
For soon they'll sag and soon they'll droop,
Oh what a sight to see,
And those tomatoes won't do no good to me or anybody.

I let you stoke my banana, I let you feel my coconuts,
Why can't I squeeze your tomatoes?
Why can't I squeeze your tomatoes?

Here are some of the lyrics of the second song:

Oh the doctor say, no more tequila,
It gonna rot off me gut and ruin me liver.
No more hamburger or French fries or snack,
Too much cholesterol give you heart attack.
Oh the doctor say, no more diet soda,
Too much chemical they put in the sweetener.
No more ice cream or cake, too much sugar in that.

Oh that was the good news now here is the bad.
You can't make love anymore, like you did before,
If you do you get it for sure,
No fun you get the syndrome.
You may lose your friends,
You may lose your hair,
No fun if you catch the syndrome.
