Verse:
Ev -'ry day as I go by his win -dow, I can see him plink -a plunk a -way;
Prac -tic -ing his hap -py ban -jo mus -ic, And at times like this I al -ways say;
 
Chorus:
Play a song, play a song, lit -tle Ban -jo Boy,
Ban -jo Boy, Ban -jo Boy,
Sing a -long, sing a -long, lit -tle Ban -jo Boy,
Sing your care -free mel -o -dy.
Ev -'ry plink, plink -a, plink -a, plink sends a hap -py feel -ing through my heart,
Who can think, think -a, think -a, think of a wor -ry when your plink plunk starts.
Bright and clear let me hear your sweet song of joy,
Play for me, Ban -jo Boy.
