Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts
From memories of my childhood I recall it being sung in Melbourne in the late '40s, ie before 1949, which is consistent with a 1944 origin; I can't vouch for it being sung (or not being sung) during WWII. I can only recall the words as posted and have no recollection of a second verse.

Cheers, Rowan
