Lyrics
Day-oh, day-oh
Daylight come and i want to go home
Day-oh, day-oh
Daylight come and i want to go home

Workin' on banana boat all day long
Daylight come and i want to go home
Six boat, seven boat, eight boat job
Daylight come and i want to go home

Day-oh, day-oh
Daylight come and i want to go home
