I'VE GOT THE YES WE HAVE NO BANANAS BLUES (C. Williams) Eddie Cantor - 1924 Also recorded by: Belle Baker; Eva Taylor. Lately I've been off my nut I keep hearing nothing but "Yes, We Have No Bananas". I would like to find the guy Who composed that lullaby "Yes, We Have No Bananas". I wish that I could go To a cabaret or show Where someone wouldn't come along And sing that doggone song! I've got the Yes We Have No Bananas Blues I've got the blues And when I hear it Oh, how I fear it! It's just like hearing bad news. It hasn't got a bit of sense And I go wild when they commence "Bananas! Bananas!" I wish I could break up a million pianas! Day by day and week by week It's "Yes, We Have No Bananas" Every time that Greek meets Greek It's "Yes, We Have No Bananas" B! A! N! A! N! A! Yes! No! Take 'em away! I've got the "Yes, We Have No Banana" Blues today. Apricots and apples are good to eat, Potatoes and tomatoes can't be beat, Onions, cabashes, peaches and plums, I could stand for any kind of fruit that comes. Yesterday somebody kept on asking me, "Say, what's a wegistable what begins with "P"? I gave it up and I asked him to tell-- When he said, "Pananas!" I just had to yell! P! A! N! A! N! A! Yes! No, no! Take 'um away! I've got the "Yes, We Have No Bananas" Blues today.
