HIMYM episode 5-19, "Zoo or False" - Theme Song!

For this weeks's theme song, in honor of my guardian angel, Angel Cohn, I present you with a TwoPperific (and slightly shortened) filk of "The Banana Boat" song, which (I hope) conveys my feelings about recapping HIMYM versus recapping Lost, these days. Ahem.

Day-o, Day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Me say day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

Work all night on a drink a wine
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
HIMYM sucks; Lost is extra fine!
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

Come, Madame Editor give me an extension
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
Come, Madame Editor give me an extension
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

Lost: flash sideways, car crash, kiss, punch
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
HIMYM: no better than The Brady Bunch
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

Day, me say day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

A beautiful bunch of Lostaways
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
Don’t care about Your Mother these days
Daylight come and me wan' go bed

Day-o, day-ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go bed
Day, me say day, me say day, me say day
Day, me say day, me say day....ay-ay-o
Daylight come and me wan' go bed


And for those of you who have grown fond of video links (or for the very young among you who don't know "The Banana Boat Song") here's some audio-visual assistance.





For posterity: Harry Belafonte (oh, so beautiful) and The Muppets perform "The Banana Boat Song" on The Muppet Show.

And since you've been such good sports about my filk, here's a bonus video:



For posterity: That's "The Banana Boat Song" from the dinner scene in Beetlejuice.

'Til next time, I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping HIMYM gets better or I get over it. Cheers.
