Banana Splits Lyrics
Sing-a-Long with me

Banana Splits theme song (Tra La La):
written by Tony Powers & Ritchie Adams
 
One banana, two banana, three banana, four
Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more.
Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
Coming on to bring you the Banana Splits show
 
Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone
 
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
 
Four banana, three banana, two bananas, one
All bananas playing in the bright warm sun,
Flipping like a pancake, popping like a cork,
Fleagle, Bingo, Drooper and, Snork
 
Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone
 
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
 
(background singer - La-----aaah!)
 
Two Banana, four banana, one banana, three
Swinging like a bunch of monkeys hanging from a tree
Hey there everybody won't you come along and see
How much like Banana Splits everyone can be
 
Making up a mess of fun, Making up a mess of fun
Lots of fun for everyone
 
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la
Tra la la, la la la la, tra la la, la la la la

I Enjoy Being a Boy:
written by Buddy Scott & Jimmy Radcliffe
 
I live in a cucumber castle
One the bank of a cranberry sea
And starfish dance under my drawbridge
And black birds make nests in my tree
 
I enjoy being a boy in love with you
I enjoy being a boy in love with you
In love with you girl
Oh yey-uh
 
I live in a purple plum mansion
In the midst of a strawberry stream
And mellifluous bells ring out softly
>From a hill of vanilla fudge cream
 
I enjoy being a boy in love with you
I enjoy being a boy in love with you
In love with you girl
Oh yey-uh
 
 
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
 
Baby, I enjoy being a boy in love with you
I enjoy being a boy in love with you
In love with you girl
Oh yey-uh
 
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
(to end)

I'm Gonna Find a Cave:
written by Buddy Scott & Jimmy Radcliffe

Soul:
written by Jimmy Radcliffe & Carl Spencer
 
Aaaaaaaahey Well naaaaaaaow
 
Ah eople everywhere are talkin' about soul
It makes you never ever wanna grow old
You can't buy it in a grocery store
You can't borrow soul from your neighbour next door
 
And if a you ain't got it
Ah no no I said a you can't get it
No no because a soul ain't for sale
Ah no no no you can't buy soul
 
When someone asks me "Hey what is soul?"
I say "Forget it if you gotta be told"
You might feel it in a newline
Or when you know your baby's out of sight
 
Because if you ain't got it
Ah no no I said a you can't get it
Whooooh because a soul ain't for sale
Ah no no no you can't buy soul
 
Ohhhhhh
 
Ayyyyy Heyyyy
 
People everywhere are talkin' about soul
It makes you never ever wanna grow old
You can't buy it in a grocery store
And you can't borrow soul from your neighbour next door
 
And if a you ain't got it
Ah no no I said a you can't get it
Whooooh because a soul ain't for sale
Ah no no no you can't buy soul
 
Heyyy
