Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)


[DELIA, spoken:]
Business friends
I have only known this amazing, amazing man and his unique daughter for a few months
I don't even know how many
I'd have to check my pay stubs
But, as my guru Otho always says-

[DELIA, sung:]
Day-O!

[CHARLES, spoken:]
What?

[LYDIA, spoken:]
What's going on Delia?
Are you alright?

[DELIA, spoken:]
Um, I-I am so sorry
I don't-I don't know what just happened
I meant to say-

[DELIA, sung:]
Me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o!

[CHARLES, spoken:]
Delia?
Do you need to lie down?

[DELIA, spoken:]
No! No, I just need to-

[DELIA, sung:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home
[*gasping*]

[DELIA, spoken:]
What is happening to me?

[CHARLES, spoken:]
Maxie!

[MAXIE, spoken:]
Yes?

[CHARLES, spoken:]
On behalf of Delia and myself, I'd just like to say-

[CHARLES, sung:]
Work all night on a drink of rum

[ALL, excluding LYDIA:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[DELIA:]
Stack banana till the morning come, brrah!

[ALL, excluding LYDIA:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home
Day, me say day o
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[CHARLES:]
Come mister tally man, tally me banana

[ALL, excluding LYDIA:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[MAXIE:]
Come mister tally man tally me banana

[ALL, excluding LYDIA:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[CHARLES, spoken:]
Lydia!
Call 9-1-1!
Wait, why aren't you dancing?

[LYDIA, spoken:]
It's like I told you Dad
This house is haunted
And the ghosts who live here
...want you out!
Barbara, the pig!

[BARBARA, spoken:]
Who wants bacon?!

[DELIA, spoken:]
No! No! I'm a vegan!

[CHARLES:]
A beautiful bunch of ripe banana

[ALL, excluding LYDIA:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[MAXINE:]
Hide the deadly black tarantula

[PIG:]
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[ALL:]
Lift six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wanna go home
Six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch
Daylight come and me wanna go home

[CHARLES, spoken:]
Maxie!
Please, forgive me!
If I had known-

[MAXIE, spoken:]
Chuck, you moron! Don't apologize! We're gonna be rich!

[CHARLES, spoken:]
What?

[LYDIA, spoken:]
What?

[MAXIE, spoken:]
I was never gonna invest in your stupid "gated community"
But a genuine haunted house?
It's a goldmine!

[LYDIA, spoken:]
No!

[CHARLES, spoken:]
Do you hear that Delia?
These ghosts are gonna make us a fortune!

[LYDIA, spoken:]
No, you're supposed to be scared!

[ADAM, spoken:]
Lydia, we're so sorry!
It didn't work!

[LYDIA, spoken:]
There's one thing that can still stop him

[BARBARA, spoken:]
Lydia, no
You don't know what will happen

[LYDIA, spoken:]
I can't keep living like this!
Betelgeuse!

[BETELGEUSE, spoken:]
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
I'm so glad you changed your mind
You are never gonna regret this

[LYDIA, spoken:]
Betelgeuse...

[BETELGEUSE, spoken:]
We are gonna make such a great team!
Give me just one... more...

[LYDIA, spoken:]
Betelgeuse!

[BETELGEUSE, spoken:]
It's showtime!

It's our house now, kid!

[LYDIA, spoken:]
Whoa...

[BETELGEUSE, spoken:]
Looks like we're not invisible anymore! Last Update: July, 18th 2022
