Sarah Vaughan – The Banana Boat Song lyrics
[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

Me say, load the banana
Boat all night long
Day de light and I wanna go home
Hey, all of you work men
Sing this song
Day de light and I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

Sleep by sun and work by moon
Day de light and I wanna go home
When I get some money
Gonna quit so soon
Day de light and I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

Pack up all my things
And I go to sea
Day de light and I wanna go home
Den de bananas see
The last of me
Day de light and I wanna go home

[Chorus:]

I hope to tell you, mon
I hear them singing, mon
I wanna go home, mon
Day de light and I wanna go home
