Kids song: The Banana Boat Song sung by Pamela Sunshine

My kids at school love singing this song. The 'huh' part just spontaneously happened one day and became integral to the way we do it. I hope you enjoy it and introduce it to the children in your world.


  1. Stop saying huh. It's quite annoying. This is a traditional Jamaican folk song not some silly kids song or a joke. This is our culture.

  2. I am sorry if this upset you. I don't treat it as a joke, we talk about the meaning of the song when we sing it. This is one of the most popular songs I do with my class, they always ask to sing it.


I welcome your comments and feedback. Thanks for your interest.
