Thread Name: ADD: The Apples and Bananas Song
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Apples and Bananas Song
Hmmm. So GUEST thinks the Apples and Bananas song is "wired".

Well, everyone's entitled to his or her opinions.

If GUEST is still around, what do you think about this children's song that I first heard in the mid 1980s at a Pittburgh, PA summer camp for kids ages 5-12 years?

I like bananas, coconuts, and grapes.
That's why they call me
Tarzan of the apes!

[repeat again and again with accompanying gestures such as patting your chest when you say "Tarzan of the Apes". Also, those words are sung louder than the other words.]

This song probably has nothing at all to do with the Apples and Bananas song except that it mentions bananas, and except for the fact that some kids and adults who may or may not be 'wired' have fun singing it.
