Lime in de Coconut



TEXTURE: Snow Fizz
SCENT: Coconut/Lime
COLOR: White/Lime topping

In 1971 Harry Nilsson released the novelty song “Coconut” that became a hit because of its easy-to-remember repetitive lyrics, its catchy tune, and it was just a fun song to sing. Nilsson sings three different characters in the song, the narrator, a woman, and a doctor. The song is about a woman who has a bellyache after “She put de lime in de coconut, she drank ‘em bo’ up. 

She called the doctor and woke him up and he suggested that she “Put de lime in de coconut, you drink ‘em bot’ togedder”. He told her she would feel better and to call him in the morning.  

The listeners often laughed as they sang along realizing that the doctor suggested the same cure that cause the bellyache! 

The coconut song has been performed often by different celebrities and featured in television commercials and shows.  The Muppet Show featured  Kermit the Frog in a sketch when he was in a hospital bed after injuring his flipper.  The hospital staff sang the Coconut song as the room morphed into a jungle theme room.  

To relieve anything that ills you, we suggest that you put “de lime Fimo slices in de coconut slime and mix ‘em bot’ togedder”. You won’t need to call us in the morning because playing with the slime may be all the medicine you need. 

Comes with a Scratch ‘N’ Sniff sticker on the label matching the scent of the slime.

Scratch ‘N’ Sniff became so popular in the 1980s that children of all ages made collecting and trading them their favorite hobby.

Were you one of the original collectors? Some of the partners here at RSC were and they wanted to share the experience with you.

There are 6 slimes per Scratch ‘N’ Sniff series. Each slime is limited-numbered and won’t be sold again so grab them before they disappear!
