I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

This song is by Freddy Martin And His Orchestra and appears on the compilation Your Hit Parade: Golden Goofers (1993).

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
