Banana Boat Song
(day-o)

Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day,
 me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home

Work all night
on a drink of rum
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Stack banana till
de mornin' come
Daylight come and
me wan' go home

Come, Mister tally man
tally me banana
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home
Come, Mister tally man
tally me banana
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home

Lift six foot, seven foot,
eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot,
eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day
 me say day...
Daylight come and me
 wan' go home

A beautiful bunch
o' ripe banana
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Hide the deadly black tarantula
Daylight come and
 me wan' go home

Lift six foot, seven foot,
eight foot bunch
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot,
eight foot bunch
Daylight come and
 me wan' go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day,
me say day...
Daylight come and
me wan' go home

Come, Mister tally man,
tally me banana
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Come, Mister tally man,
tally me banana
Daylight come and
 me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day,
 me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and
me wan' go home
