I've always enjoyed the Hoosiers' take on this zany Chris Yacich-Lorraine Milne number but found this Brit version with vocalist George Elrick (who also does some spot-on mimicry of Jimmy Durante here) very worthy of an ear-bend:

I LIKE BANANAS (BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO BONES)

Standing by the fruit store on the corner,
Once I heard a customer complain:

"You never seem to show the fruit we all love so,
That's why business hasn't been the same.

I don't like your peaches,
They are full of stones.
I like bananas,
Because they have no bones.

Don't give me tomatoes,
Can't stand ice cream cones,
I like bananas,
Because they have no bones.

No matter where I go,
with Susie, May or Anna,
I want the world to know,
I must have my banana!

Cabbages and onions,
hurt my singing tones,
I like bananas,
Because they have no bones!"
