You can slid down a tree on the skin
Wear it on your head fur a hat
Try and use a coackienut for that

You can stick it in yer ear fur a phone
Throw it to yer dog fur a bone
Buy me a jungle o my own
Canna have a banana?

It's long and it's yella and it's bent
The taste is heaven sent
Don't waste your money on yer rent
Canna have a banana?
