Description
heha!!!! i learned to edit midi!!! to do 'stuff' with gb - sadly not quite enough 'stuff' coz i couldn't sort out how to cut and paste the verse and chorus without losing my mind .... but i'll manage another time. thus - it is shorter than i would've liked! lee - the fabulously talented 20 year old lee (he is the song art!) - is playing for me on his delicious clavinova .....but i threw away the first two recordings and he was too pissed off with me to play it a fourth time!!!! so short it is! i can already hear most of my mistakes - dear lord, now i am getting as bad as the rest of you ... picky, picky, picky - so now you can tell me what you really think - lee and i have three fat songbooks and are up for it - i want to get better so.... help the aged!! xxx

Lyrics
Down at Barney's Fair, one evening I was there
When I heard a showman shouting underneath the flair

I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are a'standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch

ClaviCoconut
delightfully bouncy that was! And the way you said "luverly" was perfect,
My Fair Lady. Yup, you, Lee's keys, and a bunch of songs, this sounds like
a lot of fun! Don't forget to feed the bear though, I hear he likes coconut
merangue pie.
ttfn,
Drakonis

to me like it could be a scene out of a movie. Not sure what movie, but it's lively and entertaining and would be the life of the party. The song art makes it look like Lee is trying to sell me a coconut, heheh. Your singin' is swingin' caroline!

hehe
Really nicely done. This was a lot of fun to listen to. Your delivery is
perfect for this. Sounds good all around. I think if you were to make it
longer it would be nice to layer in some more instruments and turn it into
a big extravaganza.

So P and totally F
I will concur with thetiler and pgreenstone - it seems your voice and demeanor were custom made to deliver songs like this one. Lee is clearly an excellent addition to the Caroline Express Ragtime Fun Band (or whatever you're calling it these days), the piano delivery was spot on. The first time I heard this song was when I watched Disney's "Lion King". I may have to turn in my man card for admitting that one ... ugh! Thank you for lifting the spirits!
caroline said 4907 days ago (February 8th, 2006)

drummer boy!! give in your man card??!! no!!! you get extra points!!
so glad you enjoyed this and thank you for saying nice things - we love nice things!!! so p & f!!! xoxo

Could this be...
...the start of the new 'Chas 'n' Dave! Perhaps you ought to push the
Admins to have a Variety genre...

Anyroad - sterling performances on both accounts. Do you flash yer
bloomers when you sing this?

nice cover
now something original please......
guess this would be funnier if i hadnt heard the song before..
production is top notch but, and voice has great anthony newley/vaudeville feel to it which i quite like a bit.

a cover of david bowies 'laughing gnome' next perhaps...........??

loyd - there is original stuff posted on my page too - this is a great old british music hall type song - what the hey? it wasn't particularly meant to be funny - just fun!! lee and i having fun!! if you thought the production was top notch then i am in 7th heaven and anthony newley/vaudeville is one of the things that i do so i'm glad you liked that too. i'm not expecting to last long enough for david bowie numbers to be available to u/l!!! thanks for commenting - i found what you say very interesting x

im a big old skool musical and rock opera fan.......
i guess i love it all really.....
have you heard rufus or martha wainwright.......or loudon wainwright III for that matter????
