Steve Lawrence – The Banana Boat Song lyrics

Hill and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hill and gully rider
(Hill and gully)
Hill and gully rider
(Hill and gully)

[Chorus:]
Day-o, day-o
Comes the light
And I wanna go home
Day-o, day-o
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

Well, I'm loading the
Banana boat all night long
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

Hey, all of you work men
Sing this song
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

Well, I sleep by sun
And work by moon
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

When I get some money
Gonna quit so soon
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

Well, I pack up all my things
And I'll go to sea
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

Oh, den de bananas see
The last of me
Comes the light
And I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

Hill and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hill and gully rider
(Hill and gully)
Hill and gully rider
(Hill and gully)
