"THAT BANANA THERE"

[Hunh! Ha! Hunh! Ha! Eio! Eio!
That banana, ooh, that banana!
Eio! Eio! Ooh, that banana!]

The other day I was eating a banana,
When this little thought came to me.
Somebody had to work so very hard to
Make this banana come to be.
Well, they worked all day down on some plantation,
Underneath the burning sun.
And with out a second thought,
I pop it in my mouth, and [gulp]
Suddenly that banana's gone!

Chorus 1
Well, it's so easy to forget
All of the hard work, time and sweat
So many people had to invest
To bring that banana to me!
All of the clearing [clearing],
Plowing [plowing], planting [planting],
Watering [watering], fertilizing [fertilizing],
Harvesting [harvesting], transporting [transporting],
And the marketing [the marketing].
When on these things I meditate,
It helps me to appreciate
All of the hard work, time and care
That went into the making
Of that banana there!

[Hunh! Ha! That banana,
ooh, that bananana!
Hunh! Ha!--]

Many things in life are just like that banana,
A lot goes on that we never see.
There is so much that we all take for granted
That must be planned so carefully.
Like the food we eat, the clothes that we are wearing,
And the inventions we employ.
Oh, we just flip a switch, to turn the power on,
And they're ready for us to enjoy.

Chorus 2
Oh, it's so easy to forget
All of the hard work, time and sweat
So many people had to invest
To make life easier for us.
All of the thinking [thinking],
Planning [planning], trying [trying],
And failing [failing], experimenting [experimenting],
Analyzing [analyzing], the hard work [hard work]
Before succeeding [succeeding].
When on these things I meditate,
It helps me to appreciate
All of the hard work, time and care
That went into the making [the making]
Of that banana there!

Oh, when on these things I meditate,
It helps me to appreciate
All of the hard work, time and care
That went into the making [the making]
Of that banana there!

[Hunh! Ha! Hunh! Ha!
Eio! Eio! That banana!]
