about

Originally written for the next as-of-yet unreleased Flannery Brothers record, this song has been such a staple in all of my preschool classrooms and needed to be on "First Songs." I can't remember the origins of the joke, but it was consistently one of the funniest punchlines in preschool. "Excuse me, but you got banana on the head."

lyrics

Woke up late this morning
Hurried out of bed
Got dressed while eating breakfast
Put the jelly on the bread
And socks on my feet
And I began to eat
Took a drink
Put on my hat
and I walked into the street

That's when the mailman looked at me and said
"Excuse me but you have banana on your head."

Banana on the head
Banana on the head
Excuse me but you got
Banana on the head
Maybe your meant to wear your hat instead
Excuse me but you got banana on the head
That's when the mailman looked at me and said
Excuse me but you got banana on the head

Well I did not believe him
So I kept walking
He must have been joking
But people started talking
People started laughing
People started looking
I bumped into the baker he said
"Hey what's cookin?"

If my hats yellow my face will be red
Excuse me but you got banana on the head

Well I caught my reflection
The baker was right
But with twinkle in his eye
He said he'd make things alright

Took my bananas
Made Banana Cream Pies
But then he slipped on a peel
And they flew through the skies

I bet you know
What happened next
Everybody in the bake shop
Had a great big mess

Yeah, they put your hands up in the air
But the pies came down
And they got in their hair

That's when everybody looked up and said
Excuse me but we got banana on the head

Banana on the head...
