Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully

Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully

(CHORUS)
Day-o, day-o
Day de light
And I wanna go home
Day-o, day-o
Day de light
And I wanna go home

Well, I load the
Banana boat all night long
Day de light and
I wanna go home

Hey, all of the work men
Sing this song
Day de light and
I wanna go home

(CHORUS)

Well, I sleep by sun
And I work by moon
Day de light and
I wanna go home

I going to tell you
When I get some money
Gonna quit so soon
Day de light and
I wanna go home

(CHORUS) 2X

Well, I pack up all my things
And I'll go to sea
Day de light and
I wanna go home

Oh, den de bananas
See the last of me
Day de light and
I wanna go home

Sing me

(CHORUS)

Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hilly and gully rider
Hill and gully
