The Tarriers – The Banana Boat Song lyrics

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
