I'VE GOT A LOVELY BUNCH OF COCONUTS (Fred Hetherton) Recorded by: Cliff Adams, Billy Cotton & His Band, Merv Griffin, Danny Kaye, London Pub, Freddy Martin, Norfolk Singers, Tessie O’Shea, Mel Tormé. Down at an english fair one evening I was there When I heard a showman shouting underneath the flair I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts There they are all standing in a row Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head Give them a twist a flick of the wrist That’s what the showman said I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts Every ball you throw will make me rich There stands my wife, the idol of me life Singing Roll or bowl the ball a penny a pitch Roll or bowl the ball a penny a pitch Roll or bowl the ball a penny a pitch Roll or bowl a ball, roll or bowl a ball Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts (they’re lovely) There they are all standing in a row (one, two, three, four) Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (and bigger) Give them a twist a flick of the wrist That’s what the showman said I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts Every ball you throw will make me rich There stands my wife, the idol of me life Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch (all together now) Roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch (harmony) Roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch Roll or bowl a ball, roll or bowl a ball Singing roll or bowl a ball a penny a pitch aa Note: The line Roll or bowl the ball refers to the game of Cricket "Roll! meaning underarm and "bowl" meaning overarm.
