Lime In the Coconut - Mostly About Lime, and Coconut

"Lime in the coconut" is a phrase made famous by Harry Nilssen in his legendary song entitled 'Coconut', which he wrote in 1971.

Many people today would have been introduced to this track as it played over the end credits of the Quentin Tarantino movie, Reservoir Dogs. Although the song seemingly provides a recipe for both creating and curing a bellyache, I think it may not have been quite enough to save Mr. Orange...

Lime In The Coconut - The Lyrics of "Coconut"

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime

His sister had another, she paid it for a lime.

She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up

She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up

She put the lime in the coconut, Called the doctor, woke him up, and said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take, I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?

I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take, I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

"Now let me get this straight;

You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up

You put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up

You put the lime in the coconut, called your doctor,

woke him up, and said, ‘Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take, I say,

Doctor, to relieve this belly ache? I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,

I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?'

You put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both down,

You put the lime in the cocount, you're such a silly woman!

Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both together,

Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning."
