Dave_64,
Yes, it could well have been put the Lime in the coconut but I always remembered it as rum. I don't think you could get a hangover from lime and coconut but maybe it was nothing to do with hangovers and it was just my devious mind.

"Put da lime in da coconut" does somehow sound familiar.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Morris,
Well, Harry lived life to the hilt, burnt himself out (like so many of them did), in his early fifties from memory, so you would never know what he was adding to the Lime and Coconut!

I only ever had 2 albums of Harry's, this one Nillson Schmilson and the other was The Point. Now that one was a bit obscure and the hit song off it was 'ME and My Arrow'. The album is a story about ta boy from the land of point who didn'y have one. ( a point that is). I still listen to it even after all these years.

Oblio, was the round headed kids name from memory.
Follow up album to "Nillson Schmillson" was "Son of Schmillson", uncredited input by Harry's boozehound mate and fellow carouser, John Lennon.
My, but we do get sidetracked easily on this sub-forum, don't we?
Must be a few people with nothing better to do!
Why aren't you out in the shed working on your projects?? Now the better weather is here.
Which brings up a question that had done the rounds back in the old Army days, circa 1970, one for the budding genius's.

"If a horny-assed dog was humping a cold bucket of water, how long would it take for him to raise ten pounds of steam?"

There is an answer to this, almost forgotten in the mists of times until an old digger mate reminded me after almost fifty years.
No, there are no prizes, unless you want to qualify for trivia points.

Was it a bucket of dehydrated water or wet stuff?

The answer I heard was, "As long as a piece of string".
