I’ve got to see BeetleJuice again.
I used to love doing Day-O at music jams and Karaoke.
Best rendition since Beetlejuice.
At the baby hop. When the ants in your pants just wanna have fun.
I thought he had the music in him, not ants.
I seriously did not see that coming.
Most folks are familiar with Harry Belafonte’s version, but I’d never heard Shirley Bassey’s (Goldfinger & Diamonds Are Forever) version until this morning.
I think I like Shirley’s more. It sounds more like a “getting off work” song. More joyous.
got ants in your pants
Move over, Stan Freberg!
Well at least I like the earworm I’m stuck with now.
Okay, is it just me or does everyone think of Bettlejuice now when they hear that song?
So that’s the actual words to that song! Back in the 90s (before they went defunct), department store Bon Marche used to use that song with the lyrics modified for advertising in their commercials, and as a result, I can only ever remember “Day-o! One day sale! One day only at the Bon Marche!” :P
“Hey Dougie, what’s bugging you?”
A trip back in time. Harry Belafonte wrote and recorded ‘The Banana Boat Song’ way back in 1956 that became a #5 Billboard hit and made him a star. It has been covered and satirized endlessly since then.
Work al day on rum for lunch, daylight come and me wan’ go home.
See the pretty bunch, bright banana, daylight come and me wan’ go home.There hide de dead- da-ly black tarantella, daylight come and me wan’ go home.
I find this a little disgusting.
I was so sure the cats were up to no good! But why does the baby have ants in his diaper???!!
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!
A great big pot of rich brown gravy, (Din’time come and me wanna go home.) – The Gravy Boat Song
By “crumbs,” you mean…
