I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts
 
 

Down at Barnum's fair
One evening I was there
When I heard a showman
Shouting underneath the flare

Oh, 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 'em a twist, a flick of the wrist,
That's what the showman said.

Oh! I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich.
There stands me wife, the idol of me life,
Singing, roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch.
Singing, roll a bowl a bowl a penny a pitch,
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch,
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing, roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch.

Oh, 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 'em a twist, a flick of the wrist,
That's what the showman said.

Oh! I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich.
There stands me wife, the idol of me life,
Singing, roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch.
Singing, roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch,
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch,
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing, roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch.

Lyrics by Fred Heatherton.
Recorded by Danny Kaye.
