"Bananas and Blow" as written by and Michael Melchiondo....
Sancho brought a message from the Fat Man
Sorry, boy, to leave you high and dry
But I went to see my mom in Ensenada
And I left a little something to help the time go by
Just a little something to help to keep you high

Bananas & Blow (oh - oh), Bananas & Blow
Stuck in my cabana, living on Bananas & Blow

Now the rainy season reminds me of Maria
The way she danced, the color of her hair
Now I'm locked inside a stall at the cantina
Eating the bananas and the cocaine off the mirror
Looking for a ticket to take me away from here

Bananas & Blow (oh - oh), Bananas & Blow
Stuck in my cabana, living on Bananas & Blow

(guitar solo)

Bananas & Blow (oh - oh), Bananas & Blow
Stuck in my cabana, living on Bananas & Blow

Bananas & Blow (oh - oh), Bananas & Blow
Stuck in my cabana, living on Bananas & Blow

    General CommentThis song is no deeper or meaningful than this dude Sancho leaving this other dude some coke and a buncha bananas in the cabin...and it's fuckin' hilarious, especially the sing songy chorus!

    General Commentssoltero: That's the feeling I got too - the Fat Man locking his cabana boy-whore up while he visited his mother, but kindly leaving him copious amounts of bananas. And blow.

    Maria better not be waiting.

    General CommentDoes anyone else get this slight "Coke whore" feeling out of this song?

    I mean, he's talking about being in a bathroom stall "eating bananas and cocaine off the mirror". Sounds like he's suckin a little d**k to get more blow and he want's out.

    General CommentThe meaning is self explanatory like the others said. But I'll add that they said this song was inspired by an invitation to play a gig in Ecuador, and admitted that this is one of their many tracks where the song title came first before they wrote it.
