I LIKE BANANAS (Chris Yacich) Billy Cotton & his Band V. Alan Breeze & The Bandits Standing by the fruit stall on the corner Once I heard a customer complain You never seem to show the fruit we all love so Thatís why business hasnít been the same I donít like your peaches They are full of stones But I like bananas Because they have no bones Bo-de-o-donít give me tomatoes Cantí stand ice cream cones But I like bananas Because they have no bones No matter where I go With Susie, May or Anna I want the world to know I must have my banana Cabbages and onions Hurt my singing tones But i like bananas Because they have no bones Now I donít care for muffins I donít like buttered scones Ah but I like bananas Because they have no bones I donít like giggling flappers I donít like ancient crones Ah but I like bananas Because they have no bones In fig leaves and bearskins Which you girls often sip on Why not have banana skins Theyíre easy things to slip on I canít bear tax collectors Especially one who phones Ah but I like bananas Because they have no bones I donít like a crooner Of the blues he moans But we like bananas Because they have no bones I donít like politicians Theyíre human gramophones We like bananas Because they have no bones I never cared for drink To me it seems so sinful Though when you come to think Bananas get a skinful I donít like the bagpipes And I canít stand saxophones We like bananas Because they have no bones (Contributed by Bill Huntley - October 2006)
