Subject: RE: Lovely Bunch of Coconuts
Do y'all realize the song comes from a game that used to be played in the English fairgrounds? The game was called "Coconut Shy" and involved throwing balls at coconuts poised on sticks and trying to knock them off and win prizes!

Just a bit of trivia for you.
