Delighful Discoveries - Put De Lime in De Coconut 10.28.10

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime.
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up...
~Coconut by Harry Nilssen 1971

Boy, does that song bring back memories!! I was in junior high when it was released and it was one of those songs that you could count on hearing at school dances and high school parties... and because it was simply a silly song if was just plain fun to sing along with. (Yeah, yeah, I know... I'm sure there were hidden meanings. After all, every song back then had hidden meanings, didn't it?)

I'm a little older, a little wiser, and thankfully at time a little sillier than I was back then, but this song still makes me laugh! The imagery it evokes is equally fun and I can just imagine being on a Caribbean island watching this scene go down at a beachfront bar among a group of young people. But what I'd really be loving from my seat at the other end is asking the bartender to tap a fresh coconut for me to enjoy some coconut juice, a shot of rum, and a twist of lime. Not only is the drink yummy, but the coconut and lime provide a beautiful visual contrast of colors - just like these lovelies I'm sharing with you here! Enjoy as I showcase these items whose creators have "put de lime in de coconut" by mixing lime green, brown, and coconut white. No doctors needed!
