Fascinating... You sure it was a showman, and not a show-woman? - Or a woman showing it?

..here 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.

Could coconuts be English slang for something else?

Monty Python I've Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts Lyrics Down at an English fair, One evening I was there, When I heard a showman shouting Underneath the flare:

Hoi'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 yer 'ead! Give 'em a twist, a flick o' the wrist, That's what the showman said.

Hoi've got a lo-ve-ly bunch o' coconuts. Hevery ball yer throw will make me rich. There stands me wife, the idol of me life, Singin' "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 boll, singin' roll a-bowl a ball a penny a pitch!

Instumental

I've got a lo-ve-ly bunch of coconuts (They're lovely!) There they are a standing in a row. (One, two, three, four) Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head (And bigger) Give 'em a twist, a flick of the wrist, thats what the showman said.

Now that hoi've got a lo-ve-ly bunch of coconuts. (La-da-de-da-da) Hevery ball you throw will make me rich. (Have a banana) There stands me wife, the idol of me life, Singin' roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch!

All together now!

Singin' roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch! (Harmony!) Singin' roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch! Roll a-bowl a ball, roll a-bowl a ball, singin' roll a-bowl a ball, a penny a pitch.

Instumental

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

Monty python owns!

words and music by Eric Idle Some things in life are bad They can really make you mad Other things just make you swear and curse. When you're chewing on life's gristle Don't grumble, give a whistle And this'll help things turn out for the best... [INDENT] And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life... [/INDENT]If life seems jolly rotten There's something you've forgotten And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing. When you're feeling in the dumps Don't be silly chumps Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing. [INDENT] And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life... [/INDENT]For life is quite absurd And death's the final word You must always face the curtain with a bow. Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow. [INDENT] So always look on the bright side of death Just before you draw your terminal breath [/INDENT]Life's a piece of shit When you look at it Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true. You'll see it's all a show Keep 'em laughing as you go Just remember that the last laugh is on you. [INDENT] And always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the right side of life... (Come on guys, cheer up!) Always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the bright side of life... (Worse things happen at sea, you know.) Always look on the bright side of life... (I mean - what have you got to lose?) (You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing. What have you lost? Nothing!) Always look on the right side of life... [/INDENT]
