Day-O (The Banana Boat Song) Lyrics. Day o! Day o! Daylight come and me wanna go home Day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day, me say day o Daylight come and me wanna go home. Work all night on a drink a rum (Daylight come and me wanna go home) Stack banana till the morning come (Daylight come and me wanna go home). The song hearkens back to an era when the banana trade thrived in Jamaica before the predominance of banana republics. The call-and-response and repetition used in the song speak to the monotony of the work of loading bananas on ships in the Caribbean. Day-O reached on the Billboard Charts in 1957, and remains a famous song cited in a number of more current pop culture references such as the possession scene in Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice (1988) and Lil Wayne’s 6 Foot 7 Foot. com/watch?v AQXVHITd1N4.

Belafonte said in an interview with the ArtsJournal blog Jazz Beyond Jazz: "The most important thing to me about 'The Banana Boat Song' is that before America heard it, Americans had no notion of the rich culture of the Caribbean. Very few of them did, anyway, which made no sense to me. It made no sense to me back then that people in America would not respond to the Caribbean culture I knew in joyous, positive ways. But there were these cultural assumptions then about people from the Caribbean - that they were all rum drinking, sex-crazed and lazy - not they were tillers of the.
