Day-o

Peg, Bud and Kelly singing about Uncle Henry to the tune of Day-O

Day-O (The Banana Boat Song) is a traditional Jamaican folk song about dock workers loading bananas onto the ships during the night shift and wanting to go home as the sun rises. It has been covered by many artists throughout the years, though its best known from the version performed by Harry Belafonte in 1956.

On Married with Children, it has been sung by the Bundys in various episode, although with altered lyrics to match a particular situation.

  • In season 3's Eatin' Out, Peg, Kelly and Bud sing a version of the song that refers to Peg's Uncle Henry and his thriftiness of buying only day old bread.
  • In season 5's Married...with Aliens, Al sings a version about how he'll never go back to the Bundy residence after he gets the pictures of the aliens developed.
  • In season 7's Tis Time to Smell the Roses, Al sings a version about enjoying his retirement before Peg interrupts him.

Day old

Da-aa-ay old bread

Uncle Henry buys the day old bread

Hey Mister Bakerman, none of that fresh stuff

Uncle Henry buys the day old bread

Married...with Aliens version Edit

Day-o

Da-da-Day-o

Pictures come and I never go home

Pictures come and I never go home

One blonde

Two blondes

Three blondes, oh!

Pictures come and I never go home

Tis Time to Smell the Roses version Edit

Day-o

Da-da-Day-o

Daylight come and I work-a no more

Daylight come and I work-a no more

I see deadly red tarantula

But I sit here with my hands in my pant-tula
