The Tarriers – The Banana Boat Song lyrics

The Tarriers – The Banana Boat Song
Hill and gully rider
Hill and gully
Hill and gully rider
Hill and gully

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

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 de banana boats all night long
Day de light and I wanna go home
Hey, all of the workmen sing this song
Day de light and I wanna go home

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

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

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

(Instrumental Break)

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

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

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

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