If you don't like it let me know what you don't like about it and i'll try to fix it. Good luck! It's a good little tune that everyone sorta knows but can't remember the words. ABOUT THE SONG: each verse is a semi-tone higher than the last so when changing verses slide into it to enhance the sound of raising the pitch. Example, when changing between the chorus and second verse make sure you slide the F to F# INtroduction Chorus: E A E Tra-la-la la-la-la-la E B7 E Tra-la-la la-la-la-la (x2) Verse 1: F One banana, two bananas, three bananas, four Bb F Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more F Over hills and highway the banana buggies go Bb F Coming on to bring you the banana splits show CHORUS: F Bb F Tra-la-la la-la-la-la F C F Tra-la-la la-la-la-la (x2) Verse 2: F# Four bananas, three bananas, two bananas, one B F# All bananas playing in the bright warm sun F# Flipping like a pancake, popping like a cork B F# Fleagle, bingo, drupper and snork CHORUS: F# B F# Tra-la-la la-la-la-la F# C# F# (use a c shape chord here on the next Tra-la-la la-la-la-la frets up because the change is quick.) (x2) BRIDGE: G A G Freakin' out and havin' f-un (the chords in the bridge i play B C B as bar chords. E.g g-3rd fret, Freakin' out and havin' f-un a-5th fret, B-7th fret, c-8th fret D E D etc.) Lots of fun for everyo-one CHORUS: G C G Tra-la-la la-la-la-la G D G Tra-la-la la-la-la-la (x2) End the song any way you want (Even with an oh-o Jungo.) Well good luck guys. It's a groovy piece. -Rolfey.
