Usage Information

"I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts" is a novelty song written by Fred Heatherton, a songwriting pseudonym for a collaboration of English songwriters.[1] It is sung by Zazu to Scar. However, after singing a few lyrics, Zazu complains that he would never have had to do this for Mufasa. The version sung in the film was not included in the soundtrack or its expanded version.

Lyrics

There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Down at an English fair, one evening I was there
When I heard a showman shouting underneath the flare

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 a bowl a ball a penny a pitch

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

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
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
(All together now)

Roll a bowl, a ball, a penny, a pitch
(Harmony)
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
