Ett skepp kommer lastat med schyssta bananer,
Allt under bekvдmlighetsflagg
Men skeppet har stuvats med listiga planer
Och varje banan har en tag.
Man skalar dom fцrst: fцr man дter dom rеa,
Sen byter man еsikt och alla blir blеa...
Da da da da da da dej

Sen innfцr man dцdsstraff; tjohejfadderia.
Det var faktisk lдnge sen sist.
Och till tonerna av "Du gamla, Du fria" avrдttas var socialist.
Pе Rеsundastadion travar man liken, fцr sе gеr det till I
Bananrepubliken...

Sen tar man itu med dom gamla och svaga
Hцr unghцgerns taktfasta sеng.
Att dom som kan springa, kan vi vдl fе jaga?
Nдr bцrjar vi vеr jaktsдsong?
Vi trycker ned arbetarbarnen I skiten.
Fцr det gjorde pappa nдr pappa var liten...

Bananer e bra dom fцr dom e de skal pе...
De ska va bananer I еr...
Men inte дr mycket att bygg ett val pе fцr nеgon valmannakеr.
Det ska till nеt annat om hjдrtan ska glцda:
Bananer дr gula... men rosor дr rцda.
