I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts – by Harold Elton Box, Desmond Cox and Lewis Ilda

Written in 1944

I’ve got a lo-ve-ly bunch o’ coconuts.
There they are a-standin’ in a row.
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head!
Give ’em a twist, a flick o’ the wrist,
That’s what the showman said.

I’ve got a lo-ve-ly bunch o’ coconuts.
Every ball yer throw will make me rich.
There stands me wife, the idol of me life,
Singing “roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!”

Singin’ roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!
Singin’ 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!
