Lyrics

Clap hands together over head
Banana’s unite!

Twirl hands down one at a time
Peel bananas, peel peel bananas
Peel bananas, peel peel bananas

Make a slicing motion with hands
Slice bananas, slice slice bananas
Slice bananas, slice slice bananas

Do the mashed potato
Mash bananas, mash mash bananas
Mash bananas, mash mash bananas

Make an eating motion
Eat bananas, eat eat bananas
Eat bananas, eat eat bananas

Twirl around in a circle and go CRAZY
Go bananas, go go bananas
Go bananas, go go bananas

  1. Variation:

    “BANANAS OF THE WORLD UNITE!” (stand at attention with hands at sides)
    (Bring hands up one at a time)
    Form bananas, form form bananas
    Form bananas, form form bananas

    (Twirl hands down one at a time)
    Peel bananas, peel peel bananas
    Peel bananas, peel peel bananas

    (Jump around, go crazy)
    Go bananas, go go bananas
    Go bananas, go go bananas

    *Return to standing at attention and wait for campers to follow*

    Repeat with:
    Potato: form, peel, mash (stomping)
    “The corn”: form, peel/shuck, pop (jump up and down)
    “The Orange: form, peel, “Orange you glad we didn’t go bananas again?”/”Orange you glad it’s time for ___(next song or activity)?”

  2. Yet another variation!

    After GO BANANAS we have the leaders yell ‘B-A-N-A-N-A-S’ and everyone else repeat that and we do that twice. After that we have everyone ‘Go bananas go go bananas’ really quitely then yell ‘___ MORE TIMES’
