GUEST,Lee Hartsfeld Lyr Req: I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts (49) RE: Lyr Req: Lovely Bunch of Coconuts 29 Jul 05


Merv had a number of hits, actually. With Freddy Martin, he made the Top 20 with "Coconuts," "My Truly, Truly Fair" (same time as Guy Mitchell's record, of course), "Music, Music, Music," "Third Man Theme," and "Never Been Kissed." As a solo singer on the same label (RCA), he hit the Top 40 with "Morningside of the Mountain" and "Twenty-three Starlets" in 1951. Much later, on the Carlton label, he hit the Top 100 with "The Charanga" and "Banned in Boston" (both 1961).

He rerecorded "Coconuts," for Carlton, as the flip side of "Screamin' Meemies from Planet X." He also sang it on "'Alf and 'Alf," a 1966 British music hall LP on MGM featuring Merv and Arthur Treacher.
