Day-o, day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Work all night on a drink a rum
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Stack banana till the mornin' come
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day
(Daylight come and me wan' go home)

A beautiful bunch, a ripe banana
(Daylight come and me wan' go home)
Hide the deadly, black tarantula
(Daylight come and me wan' go home)

Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day-o
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day
(Daylight come and me wan' go home)

Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home
Come, Mister tally man, tally me banana
Daylight come and me wan' go home

Day-o, day-o,
Daylight come and me wan' go home,

Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o

Daylight come and me wan' go home
