Video: Daaaay-O, Day-ay-ay-O


Uploaded to YouTube by videogameaddict64

The "Day-O scene", from Tim Burton's movie Beetlejuice, where the guests at a dinner party gets possesed and reluctantly starts to sing and dance to Harry Belafonte's probably biggest hit song "The Banana Boat Song (Day-O)"

The music is traditional Jamaican and the lyrics of this version is by Irving Burgie and William Attaway. Sing-a-long!!

Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and me want go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
Daylight come, and me want go . . .
Work all night on a drink of rum!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Stack banana 'till the morning come!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Lift 6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
A beautiful bunch of ripe banana!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Hide the deadly black tarantula!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Lift 6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch!
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Come Mr. Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and me want go home)
Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and me want go home
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day-o
(Daylight come and me want go home)

Den filmen går rätt ofta på tv, men den är ju alltid ett kärt återseende ändå.
