The Banana Boat Song

 

Refrain:  Day-o, me say day-ay-o
                Daylight come and me wanna go home
                Day-o, me say day-ay o
                Daylight come and me wanna go home

Work all night till the mornin’ come
Daylight come and me wanna go home
Stack banana till thee morning come
Daylight come and me wanna go home

Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wanna go home

Come, Mr. Tally Mon, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wanna go home

It's six foot, seven foot, eight foot, Bunch!
Daylight come and me wanna go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot, Bunch!
Daylight come and me wanna go home
 

A beautiful bunch a'ripe banana

Daylight come and me wanna go home

Hide thee deadly black tarantula

Daylight come and me wanna go home
