Ein Song im Rhythmus der 1920er Jahre:
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 "yeses" you to death
And as he takes your dough he tells you:
Yes! We have no bananas
We have no bananas today
We've string beans and honions,
cabbahges and scallions
And all kinds of fruit and say
We have an old fashioned tomahto
Long Islands potahto
But Yes! we habe no bananas
We have no bananas today.
Bus'ness got so good with him
He wrote home to say
"Send me Pete and Nick and Jim,
I need help right away"
When he got them in the store
There was fun, you bet
Some one asked for 'Sparrowgrass'
And then the whole quartette all answered:
