Music Series: Coconut by Harry Nilsson

Awhile back I saw a great documentary on AXS-tv about Harry Nilsson and was glued to the lengthy story. Such an interesting person. He was a great songwriter and had many big hits in his time. I’m a lover of all music, for the most part, and his song, Coconut, is one of my favorites of his. I still remember Eddie Murphy and Jeff Garlin singing it in the movie Daddy Daycare, and giggling the entire time.

I’ve always heard a large variety of explanations for what this song was supposed to mean, but I never agreed with them, honestly. My thought on this song is a nod to the term, “Hair of the Dog”. For those of you too young to have even heard that expression, (damn, sometimes I feel old), it’s short for ‘hair of the dog that bit you’, which means, “the best thing for a hangover, or whatever ails you, is to have more of it.” Now, while I personally tend to drink a bit of dill pickle juice for a hangover, many people do believe that a bit of ‘what bit ya’ will cure you. Take it for what it is, a really fun song, and I hope you like my little creative ditty! xo

*************

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one she paid it for the lime
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank ‘em bot’ up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em bot’ up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em bot’ up
She put the lime in the coconut, she call the doctor, woke 'I’m up

“Havin’ fun, babe?” Harry asked, laughing, as you sipped on what could have possibly been your 4th…maybe 5th…coconut rum daiquiri.

“Beautiful time, handsome!” you shout back, a little louder than necessary, but still over the music from the steel drums playing around you. “Thank you for asking me to come with you!”

“ ‘Course, love,” he replies, kissing your cheek and sipping his own drink. “Think we were both ready for a bit of a holiday, don’t you?”

“Know I was, that’s for damn sure,” you reply, tipping your drink back to catch the end of the liquid floating in the bottom of the glass. “Ready for another!” you say in the direction of the bartender, who smiles and laughs at you enjoying yourself at the party.

“Love,” Harry giggles, “You’re probably going to be regretting these drinks tomorrow, you know.”

“Nonsense!” you chide. “Not everyday we both have time off work together to travel to a tropical island, enjoying delicious rum, and dancing with strangers! Come on!”

You grab Harry’s hand as he laughs at how drunk you are, and the two of you go to where the sandy dance floor had just enough space for you to squeeze in and dance along with the others.

Said “doctor, ain’t there nothing’ I can take?”
I said, “doctor, to relieve this belly ache”
I said “doctor, ain’t there nothin’ I can take?’
I said, "doctor, to relieve this belly ache”

You put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em bot’ together
Put the lime in the coconut and you’ll feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, drink 'em bot’ up
Put the lime in the coconut and call me in the morning”

“Baby?” Harry says softly in your ear. “Hey, love?”

You groan and place your hand on your head as he giggles.

“Sweetheart? You doing okay?” he asks quietly with a smile. “Been asleep for quite a long time. Moaning a lot. You alright?”

You whisper. “Why are you yelling at me?”

Harry laughs. “Silly woman. I told you, you’d be regretting all those daiquiris today.”

“You didn’t,” you say softly, now both hands on your head.

“I did!” he reprimands with another laugh.

“Why aren’t you hungover?” you groan as you curl up closer to him.

He leans over you and kisses your thumping head. “Because I didn’t drink as much as you did, and you’re a light-weight when it comes to drinking.”

I say wow, to relieve this belly ache
I said “doctor, ain’t there nothing I can take?”
I said, “doctor, ain’t there nothing I can take?”
I said, “doctor, ain’t there nothing I can take?”
I said, “doctor you’re such a silly woman”

“Come on, now,” Harry says as he pulls back the covers and pulls on your arms. You groan as your head sways. “Get up now, love. Last day here before we fly back. Let’s get some food in you, rehydrate, and enjoy the rest of our time here before it’s gone.” He kisses you sweetly. “Let’s get a quick shower.”

Harry helps you into the washroom and assists you in taking a shower, then leaves you to get dressed. As you walk back into the kitchen of the little bungalow he had rented, he sets a drink and plate of food in front of you.

“Thanks,” you say, placing a peck on his cheek as he leaned over to you, caressing your hair. ‘You’re a sweetheart.”

“I know,” he giggles.

You look at the plate of food, which as sweet as he was to make it for you, was not appealing to you with the nasty stomachache you harbored from the night before. You pick up the glass and begin to take a sip, when you stop and sniff it.

“What is this?”

“Hair of the dog, babe…”

Harry laughs as you quickly run back into the washroom, relieving yourself of your belly ache, and cursing him under your breath, even though your belly did feel a bit better.

Woo, ain’t there nothin’ you can take?
I say, woo, to relieve your belly ache
You say, well woo, ain’t there nothin’ I can take?
I say woo, woo, to relieve your belly ache
You say ya, ain’t there nothin’ I can take?

Essere vivi significa correre.
Correre via da qualcosa, correre per qualcosa, correre verso qualcuno.
