Banana Said Whoops

from Songs to Sing at Children by Mike Phirman



The banana said "Whoops!" and it fell on the floor
And everybody said, "Hey, pick banana up, or
if it was on purpose let it stay lying down."
"I think banana didn't mean to fall," said a clown.
"And this is just a thing that you are guessing?" asked a crow.
"Actually, it's not—I said, 'I think,' but meant, 'I know.'
See just before banana had its slipping accident,
It said a word that let me know this wasn't what was meant.
When the thing you do's intended, 'Whoops!' ain't what you say.
You'd go, 'Oh Good!' or 'Great!' or 'Nice!' or 'Fine!' or just 'Ok!'
And so I posit to you all that we should help it stand.
We're duty bound to circle round and lend our friend a hand."
But when they turned to help their pal, they saw no sign of it.
"We spoke too long, banana's gone."
'Twas true—banana split.
