I want to tell you a story,
About a bloke that I know.
One day he'll learn the words,
But, uh, I don't know
He ain't exactly pretty
He ain't exactly smart.
He can read a bit of paper,
you could say that he's an old fart
He's a really sad bastard, oh yeah,
Sad bastard, yah
He's a really sad bastard, oh yeah,
And I don't care.

I know a man, who sings a song
every day
sings the same song, sings the same song
every day.
And this song,
it is day-oh, woe oh oh
Banana boat song, tarantula every day.

but he doesn't know the words.
he has to read them every time.

Every night, with the words, written down
George sings the
Boat song.

You really need to know the rhythm of Into Your Arms by Paul Kelly(? I think) for that.
