Harry Nilsson – Coconut (1971)

Scroll down to content

The third single from his 1971 album, Nilsson Schmilsson, it reached #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and it features three distinct characters (the narrator, the sister, and the doctor), all sung in different voices by Nilsson. The song is perhaps best remembered for its chorus lyric, “She put the lime in the coconut, she drank ’em both up.”


[Dedicated to Valdemar Alfred Nielsen]
