Alternate lyrics - "Rocky bought a coconut ..." / "Ain't there nothing I can take to relieve this flipper ache".

The Muppets performed Coconut during an episode that aired in the fourth season of The Muppet Show.

Fozzie Bear introduces the song which is performed by Kermit the Frog (Jim Henson), a Nurse (Louise Gold), and a Doctor (Jerry Nelson). As they sing, Kermit lies in a hospital bed suffering from a "severely twisted flipper."

The song was available on a CD called Muppet Hits.
