Jake Owen - Green Bananas Lyrics

This old boat kept us afloat
All those years on the lake
I remember that day I heard my best friend say
This is probably the last trip I'll make
Cause the doctors are saying it ain't lookin' good
And I doubt that I'll make it to spring

And it's a hell of a note
When you never know
What tomorrow might bring

So I don't buy green bananas
Well I don't play the lottery
Right now's all I've got going
Yeah and that's just fine for me
And I don't own an umbrella
If it rains, I'm gonna get wet
So I don't buy green bananas
Cause I don't plan that far ahead

It ain't the same on these hot summer das
When I'm out here fishin' alone
Well sometimes I might get a few bites
But then there's days that I don't
So I just roll with the flow
And I rock with the waves
Catch me some rays from the sun
Yeah and like my friend said I'm gonna live while I can
And take each day as it comes

So I don't buy green bananas
I don't play the lottery
Right now's all I've got goin'
Yea and that's just fine for me
And I don't own an umbrella
If it rains, I'm gonna get wet
And I don't buy green bananas
I don't plan that far ahead
I don't own an umbrella
If it rains, I'm gonna get wet
And I don't buy green bananas
Cause I don't plan that far ahead
