Verse:
The time is nev -er drea -ry, If a fel -low nev -er groans,
The la -dies nev -er wea -ry, Of a man who sel -dom moans.
So come a -gain, Su -san -na, By the gas -light of the moon,
Come play the old pi -a -no, While my ban -jo I will tune.
 
Chorus:
Ring, Ring the Ban -jo! I like that good old song.
Come a -gain, my true love, Oh! Where've you been so long?
Ring, Ring the Ban -jo! I like that good old song.
Come a -gain, my true love, Oh! Where've you been so long?
