Refrain only) Cohn and Silver, 1923. There’s a fruitshop down our street, It’s run by a Greek, And he sells good things to eat, But you should hear him speak, When you ask him anything, Never answers No, He just yesses you to death, And as he takes your dough he tells you: Refrain: Yes! We have no bananas, We have no bananas today
It will be hours before she manages to fall asleep, and she’s got to keep her mind busy until then. On the nightstand is Les Misérables, beckoning her to finish the last two hundred pages. A quick trip to the kitchen to fetch another mug of tea, the flicking on of a reading light, and she settles for another long night. Can you explain to me why "Yes! We Have No Bananas" was a THING? Well, it’s a little before my time, but I guess in the early 20s right around the time I was born there was a pretty hefty shortage of bananas. I guess when there’s rationing, bananas are often the first to go, which makes sense, they’re pretty fragile and only grow in hot places you gotta ship them from. So it probably resonates with people. Also it’s a catchy tune!
PIED PIPER: It’s working!. The water stream is too hard. It’s taking away the rats and they are drowning!. I will keep on playing until there’s none of them alive. NARRATOR: Some minutes went by and there were no rats in the edge of the river. All of them were inside the water where they drowned. PIED PIPER: I will keep on playing my music, just to be sure that there are no more rats. NARRATOR: The pied piper got out of the water. He put on his shoes, went back to the city hall, and to the mayor’s office. PIED PIPER: I want to see the mayor. MAYOR: Dear Hamelin citizens!. Tonight we have celebrated our hero, the pied piper who got rid of the rats. Pied piper, come here with me. PIED PIPER: Here I am, mayor. MAYOR: Let’s give our hero an applause!.
