"Banana Boat Song"

by Harry Belafonte

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home


Stack banana 'til de mornin' come

Daylight come and me wan' go home

Stack banana 'til de mornin' come
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Come, Mr Tally man, Tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Come, Mr Tally man, Tally me banana

Daylight come and me wan' go home

 

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Six hand, seven hand, eight hand bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Six hand, seven hand, eight hand bunch

Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

 

Beware, the deadly black tarantula

Daylight come and me wan' go home
Beware, the deadly black tarantula
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o, daylight come

And me wan' go home

 

(slowing)
Day-o, me say day, me say day,

Me say day

Daylight come, and me wanna go home
