Yes! We Have No Bananas

Lyrics

(Frank Silver & Irving Cohn, 1923)

Yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.

We’ve string beans and onions, cabbages and scallions,
And all kinds of fruit and say,
We have an old-fashioned tomato, Long Island potato,
But yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.

Yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
Our eggs are delicious, but they act suspicious,
They look like they passed away,
And if you try some of our spinach (spin-ish), we’ll tell you you’re finished,
But yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
 
Yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
Our famous cucumbers were tested by plumbers,
And they cannot leak they say.
We have some nice vege-tay-bles, just look at the labels,
But yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
Yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
Just try those co-co-nuts, those walnuts and doughnuts,
There ain’t many nuts like they.
We’ll sell you two kinds of red herring, dark brown and ball bearing,
But yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
 
But yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
This song isn’t pretty, but still it’s a ditty
That grows on you day by day.
And you can all do something for us, just join in the chorus.
Yes! We have no bananas, we have no bananas today.
