Lyrics:

Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Work all night till the morning comes.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Stack bananas till the morning comes.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Come Mister Tally Man, tally my bananas.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Come Mister Tally Man, tally my bananas.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

A beautiful bunch of ripe bananas.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Six-hand, seven-hand, eight-hand bunch.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Come Mister Tally Man, tally my bananas.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Come Mister Tally Man, tally my bananas.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Day-o, I say day-o.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.
Daylight's coming and I want to go home.

Now it's time to rise and shine,
Brush my teeth and tie my shoes.
The day has come, it's time to run,
Hug the day and meet the sun.

  1. i kinda hate that you guys are singing this song it was used in slavery and they sung it to keep their spirits up and the tally man would whip them if them if they had less bananas then what they picked last time so yeah.

  2. This is total cultural appropriation. Way to turn a traditional mento folk song into squeaky, guitar-backed, Americanized, whitewashed trash. The correction of the original song’s grammar is just reprehensible.

  3. You’ve just ruined my fave child hood song my mum used to put on the song for me and we used to pretend to tally bananas but you’ve gotten rid of the reggae beat so now I’m gonna listen to the original so depressed

  4. This is absolutely beautiful; my daughter will be 11 months tomorrow and she really enjoys it and sleeps while watching the video. Even me I sing it throughout the day. lol
