Subject: Lyr Req: Song from a few years ago about bananas
From: GUEST,Jaime F
Date: 21 Apr 15 - 03:29 PM

I was working ten years ago in Toys R Us and there was a song about bananas that came up a couple of days ago in my memory and it's been bothering me ever since. I remember a few of the lyrics and was wondering if anyone could help me find the song. Here are some:

"Bananas, I love it when you peel them"
"They're the favorite fruit for monkeys like me"

The ending lyric was:
"Bananas, I love you a bunch, but I'm gonna have to get out of this monkey suit and have a sandwich for lunch. Too baaaaaaaaad"

Can anyone help me find this song or at least the name of the song? I've done a general Google search but it came up empty. Thank you!

? Monty Harper ? a children's songwriter...
idk but this sounds like the sort of music I'd expect to hear in toys r us...?
Lyrics are similar feel but somewhat different from what you quoted.

Yes, I heard it while working at Toys R Us and sorry Freddy, that isn't the song I've got stuck in my head. Thanks for trying though. When you listen to the song you think it's about monkeys singing about bananas but it's a guy in a monkey suit.

This thread reminds me of "I like Bananas Because They Have No Bones"!!

I quit eating them for precisely that reason. Shin 'em, throw away the bone and nothing's left.

I have been unable to find a darned thing on this song other than the site you post to. It doesn't look good in terms of locating it.

This being a folky site might not really be the best place to ask.

Could you try https://uk.answers.yahoo.com/

or even go back to the store and ask who was choosing the music ten years ago?? If it was piped from head office they might have some paperwork? But you'll need to find a very sympathetic member of staff! ;) ? Pretend to be a fourteen year old who just HAS to find a childhood song !?
