One worker sings then the others answer.  They pass  time as the tally man counts the hands of bananas on each worker's bunch.

        After each line sing: 

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

 

        Day oh!   Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

        Day oh!    Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

 

        I work all night from quarter to one.

        Stack bananas 'till the morning come.

        Come Mister tally man; tally me bananas.

        I come here to work I didn't come here for to idle.

 

        One han'  two  Han'  three han'  bunch!

        Four han'  five han'  six han'  bunch!

 

        Day oh! Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

        Day oh!  Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

 

        A lovely bunch of ripe bananas.

        Hide the deadly black tarantula

        So check them, check them, check them with caution.

        My back is breaking from pure exhaustion.

 

        Six han'  seven han'  eight han'  bunch!

        Nine han'  ten han'  eleven han' bunch!

 

        Day oh! Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.

        Day oh! Me say: Day Oh!

        Daylight come and me wanna go home.
