Duit On Mon Dei is the eleventh album by Harry Nilsson. The original title for this album was "God's Greatest Hits" but RCA didn't approve. The title is a punning spelling of Do It On Monday, playing on the British Monarchy's motto Dieu et mon droit (God and my right). It was originally used on the cover of Ringo Starr's 1973 album Ringo.
