Verse:
Where's Mis - ter Banjo, where can that man be?
On some old park bench, a ban - jo on his knee.
Play - in' all day long and night time too,  He'll play bump - a - dit - ty bump for you.
Play,  Mis - ter Ban - jo, an old time harm - o - ny.
 
Chorus:
Hey,  Mis - ter Ban - jo,  play a tune for me,
Play,  Mis - ter Ban - jo,  a hap - py mel - o - dy.
We'll all clap our hands and we'll stamp our feet,
You keep strum - min' while we keep the beat.
Play,  Mis - ter Ban - jo,  a pret - ty mel - o - dy.
