Yes! We Have No Bananas

-By Irving Cohn & Frank Silver, 1923

There's a fruit store on our street
It's run by a Greek.
And he keeps good things to eat,
But you should hear him speak!

When you ask him anything,
He never answers "no".
He just yes-es you to death,
and as he takes your dough, he tells you ...

REFRAIN
Yes! we have no bananas!
We have no bananas today!
We have string beans and onions,
CabBAges and scallions
And all kinds of fruit and say,
We have an old fashioned toMAHto,
A Long Island poTAHto, but
Yes! We have no bananas!
We have no bananas today!

--interlude--

Business got so good with him,
He wrote home to say,
Send me Pete and Nick and Jim,
I need help right away.

When he got them in the store,
There was fun you bet.
Someone asked for sparrowgrass,
And then the whole quartet all answered:

REFRAIN
Yes! We have no bananas,
We have no bananas today!

Just try those coCOnuts
Those walnuts and donuts
There ain't many nuts like they!

We'll sell you two kinds of red herring,
Dog brown and ball-bearing, but

Yes! We have no bananas,
We have no bananas today!

(optional talking part not covered by the Midi file)

You gotta strumbly pie?
Yes, I don't think we got strumbly pie.

You got coconut pie?
Yes, I don't think we got coconut pie.

I'll have one step of coffee.
We got no coffee.

Well, whattayou got?

OH, you gotta banana!

Yes, we gotta no banana, no banana, no banana,
We gotta no bananas today. I tellaya no banana.
