The Lyrics

her name was lola
she was a stoner
this yellow fruit, she would declare
gives a high beyond compare
she would inhale it
and start to ha-ha
no, you don't smoke it like cigars
its the peels, you gotta char

across the kitchen floor
were nanners by the score
in our lungs, till we nearly smothered
then we asked for more

we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
with tony, scott, lola and anna
we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
throat takes a bashin'
because of our passion
but we're smokin'
we all took part

we went bezerko
our minds were climbin'
i was too ripped to leave my chair
i saw patterns dancin' there
my sense diminished
tingled all over
but it went a bit too far
i began to feel bizarre

and then the vomit flew
and i felt thrashed when through
smoke that crud...it'll make your brain rot
now i know its true

we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
with tony, scott, lola and anna
we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
throat takes a bashin'
because of our passion
but we're smokin'
we all took part

her name was lola
she was a stoner
but that was many years ago
she don't get high anymore
now, she's addicted
my dear sweet lola
to banana splits, i swear
and her hips go out to there

when she goes out to dine
you know what's on her mind
she loves the taste, but don't like 'em stony
she don't miss the times......

we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
with tony, scott, lola and anna
we were smokin'
smokin' bananas
throat takes a bashin'
because of our passion
but we're smokin'
we all took part
we were smokin'
we all took part
we all took part

Oh good, I can get an obvious one in: This song has a lot of appeal. John B: Is that was Donovan meant by "electrical banana"? And is that also what Gwen Stefani means by "bananas"?

How do u smoke a banana? I would imagine making tobacco out of the dried leaves, rather than trying to light the fruit, right?...good parody

Smokin Bananas doesn't work (so I've heard...), though this parody does.

AFW, its the peels not leaves that supposedly do the job (so I've read...)
