"A Bunch of Bananas (The Heming Way)" as written by Dick Manning and Ogden Nash....
Huh-huh-huh, my luck she is running very good!

I got a bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin
They keep the hunger out and the happiness in
I got a bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin
My luck she is running very good

I fly over jungle and my aeroplane boil
No gasoline and I run out of oil
I fill the tank with the gin and the banana oil
My luck she is running very good

(Oo-lay, oo-lay-ee-dee)

That zebra is red hot mama
(Oo-lay, oo-lay-ee-dee)

She is horse in lounging pyjama

We land in the jungle by the teeth of my skin
All the animals crowd around the flying machine

Big gorilla walk up to me and talk very mean
He put up his mits, I sock him on the chin
Then gorilla and me we begin the Beguine

With a bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin

A bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin
Make a crazy sandwich full of vitamin
Outside you put the bananas and the gin in-between
My luck she is running very good

Today I meet tiger, he is hungry for meal
So I fed him gin to obtain his goodwill
Then when he chase me, he slip on the banana peel
My luck she is running very good

(Oo-lay, oo-lay-ee-dee)

He got girls like Indian Rajah
(Oo-lay, oo-lay-ee-dee)

I don't need no Rita or Zsa-Zsa

On Congo we meet a pretty cannibal Queen
We are posing for pictures in the Life magazine

She propose poker game to pass the time in-between
She promise she make me her King if I win
But if I lose, I wind up in her big soup tureen
With a bunch of bananas and a bottle of gin
