lyrics

When I was just a young boy
I had trouble falling asleep
I counted sheep after sheep after sheep
But I would rouse with every knock and every creak

So I went to my mother
Said, “Mama! What should I do”
She put me on her knee, she said, “Listen to me sonny,
I’ve got just the thing for you.”

“Have a banana!” X 2
“Bananas are so fine, they cure everything in time
Have a banana!”

When I was slightly older
I was feeling rather stressed
About a statewide assessment test
I so wanted to do my best

He slapped me on the back and said listen to me mac
I’ve got just the thing you need

When I was slightly older
I started sprouting hair
I looked as furry as a bear
I cried oh why is life so unfair

So I went to my father
Said, “Papa! Help me please”
He took a look real quick and said
“A razor does the trick, and I’ve got one more thing you need.”

“Have a banana!” X 2
“Bananas are so fine, they cure everything in time
Have a banana!”

“Have a banana!” X 2
“There’s no reason to complain when you’ve got a big plantain!
Have a banana!”

Now I am a grown man,
with children of my own
How I hear them cry and moan
Why won’t they leave me alone?
But I am here to help them, and help them’s what I do
When they come for some advice, they never need ask twice
I tell them something true.

“Have a banana!”
“Have a banana”
“Bananas are so fine, they cure everything in time
Have a banana!”

“Have another banana?”
“Have a banana!”
“There’s no reason to complain when you’ve got a big plantain!
There’s nothing else you needa if you’ve got a ripe Chiquita
They really are a steal, especially if you eat the peel
Have a banana!”
