Well here we go (don't tell anyone I knew them!)

YES WE HAVE NO BANANAS
Words and music by Frank Silver & Irving Cohn

There's a fruit store on our street,
It's run by a Greek
And he keeps good things to eat,
But you should hear him speak
When you ask him anything, never answers 'No'
He just 'yesses' you to death and as he take your dough
He tells you;

Yes we have no bananas. we have no bananas today.
We've broad beans like bunions, cabbahges and honions
And all kinds of fruit and say,
We have an old fashioned tomahto a nice Jersey potahto
But yes we have no bananas
We have no bananas today

All spellings as per original manuscript.

I'm not aware of any other verses

Take care and sing it well - Pete - clansfolk@msn.com
