Some people don't understand that this song is about slaves. "Come Mr. Tally Man tally me banana;" he is done with his work. "Day! me say day;" another day of work. "Six foot seven foot eight foot bunch!" The bananas are growing. "Daylight come and me wanna go home;" biggest proof in song that this was about slaves.
Betty Churchill
The 'Banna Boat Song' is one of Harry Belefonte's best. It is CALYPSO at its best.
MrJeezus
Careful when you shop for bananas..."Hide three deadly black tarantula."
YoshiAngemon
"I would rather talk about... (starts singing the song)" But realistically, the first televised appearance of this song was in The Muppet Show. Let that sink in.
Marcia Burns
This is from the soundtrack of the first Bettlejuice movie with featured this song and Shake, Shake Senora I love both songs.
Jimmy Kay

Ken T and Sharon H-E
Most probably a mix of the Jamaican Patois and american English, he spent many of his childhood years with his grandma in Jamaica. Of course, Patois is very much influenced by african Languages also. Just saying..  :)
Belex Rodriguez
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!

What a dip shit. This song is not about SLAVERY. It is about native exploitation and one's having to do what one has to do to survive. That is kinda universal, not a political statement. "Me work all night on a drinka Rum". Slaves were not fed rum. Cheap native labor was fed rum.

That's my childhood just love it so much ♡♡♡ Thank you for posting this ♡♡♡

Who would have thought a song about men who worked on a loading dock would be so catchy? Before Bob Marley Harry Belafonte was the king of reggea

Did U know Oscar-winner Alan Arkin had a hand in composing this number?????

Six foot seven foot eight foot bunch. 6 foot 7 foot by Lil Wayne? Modern music uses old songs to make either good songs or bad songs.
