Written and sung by Sam Devere.

A lean banana, decayed to the core,
E'er since I slipped on thy peel I've been so sore;
On my back I lingered just where I fell,
The sweet words I uttered would ne'er do to tell;
If I could have caught then the dizzy lookingr gawk,
Who threw that banana peel out on the walk,
It made me see stars that I ne'er saw before-
A lean banana I'll love thee no more.

Lightly I'll tread on the sidewalk evermore,
A lean banana, rotten to the core;
I slipped on thy peel. I'll be careful evermore,

A. lean banana from some foreign shore.
A lean banana you've caused many a roar,
I slipped on thy peel and you turned me o'er and o'er;
And young girls have blushed so when thrown off their pegs,
Slipping on a banana and showing their dear legs;
Numerous are the pedestrians that you have caused to fall,
Great, big and little, lean, lank and tall:
The seats of fat men's pants you've busted and you've tore,
A lean banana, how they have swore.

Watchful I am from the time I leave my door-
A lean bauana I've heard of you before;
E'er since I slipped on thy peel I've been so sore,
A lean banana from some Dutch grocery store.
