Description
part of the Marx Bros set, a sort of jammy song based on coconuts, written [for what it's worth] in January this year. Wurlitzer W200 used for solo. Hope you like it, this is a more serious side of my writing. [NAD-10-01]

Lyrics
The coconuts –January 2011-02-08

I write what I write on the roll de bog,
I write what I write high on the hog,
My coconuts is burning – ah ha ah ha,
My coconuts gone bad, -boo hoo boo hoo.

Ah eat too much like a regular lardy,
Ah eat too much like Oliver Hardy,
My coconuts is burning – ah ha ah ha,
My coconuts gone bad, -boo hoo boo hoo.

– electic piano -

I likes my jazz like Texas Pete,
Mean and moody, mean and moody,
I rolls my eyes and taps my feet,
la la loody la la loody

watch me dance- tap dancing break –

[Heavy Mary] –sighs - Ah Peter ……so cool….

Chorus – Repeat it Pete – repeat it Pete –
Whooaa – repeat it Pete…….

Pete’s fall

[Cockney geezer] – ‘cor blimey….Pete’s gone a funny colour…

[Heavy Mary] – Ambulance to Pepe’s please…..

continued piano break and out -

Cocoanuts Over Cocoanuts
Couldn't Get Enough Cocoanuts
This is my 3rd fill of Cocoanuts as this was exceptional as I told you over yonder..I am beginning to get the Frank Zappa gist of your writings

thank you Joyce
I suppose I have listened and been influenced by big Frank more than anyone over the years. Still play his albums a lot.

Unique!
Fantastic work John :)

I'd second the Zappa feel. Great sound and I love the little ecursion into that lounge swing style at the end.

Cheers

you're nuts
There's nothing quite like a Woofer3 song to cheer me up on a wet and windy day.
Love that squelchy bass sound at the beginning...aw, damn it, I love all it.
Total. joyful madness.
Reminded me at times of a band called White Noise from the 60's.
Anyway, thank you for another brill song
I'm off to watch some Marx Bros

coconuts
great intro john....really cool beat. where are your lyrics? this is excellent. quirky and clever....as always. la la lohday. i love how you do female voices so convincingly....and that bit of cockney. and that keyboard solo after is sublime...end of the pier lounge jazz....totally excellent. TOO SHORT! very very interesting and very very enjoyable. you manage to cram in so many little turns without losing coherency. genius.

Hi Julian
yeh - sorry about the lyrics again! I will sort that today, at the moment they sre still scribbled in pencil on a piece of paper. The female voice was done with the aid of a pich controller which is built into Cubase - I just soften the voice a little and apply that.

Thank you for your kind comments, am struggling with Horse feathers at the moment.

John.

Hi John. Wow! You have crammed more musical ideas into 2.47 that I thought possible. Love the Wurlitzer and the Zappa-esque influences. Unique. Warm regards, Peter.

coconuts-
Thank you, - oddly enough I have never been keen on coconuts though I'm sure I'm in the minority. It's just one of the very few things that for some reason has always upset my system.

Grooving away to this!
I was just thinking how interesting it would be if someone took your audacious song here and used it as the music in a video featuring Groucho and Margaret Dumont dancing and gyrating to it (I can just picture this!) Great work and great fun on this one John--thanks again! Michael

Thanks Michael
Tried to answer this yesterday but got sidetracked. You nention Margaret Dumont, - such an elegant lady with a gorgeous speaking voice, I don't think she was ever regarded as a sex symbol but when you really looked at her she was quite beautiful - at least that's what I think. I can imagine the scene with her and Groucho, - ' you've got two of the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen , - well one anyway' -priceless!

A
bit of everything here and I loved it all, superb intro and the piano sounds really great along with all the other instruments. I love the vocals, especially the cockney phrases and the wurlitzer, great sound.
Excellent work John and very much enjoyed.
