Subject: Red scarf matches yr eyes
From: Rodney Rawlings
Date: 16 Jan 97 - 09:12 AM

Anyone know any other lyrics to the humorous song by comedian Guy Marks than: Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes/ You close your cover before striking/ Father has the black pajama blues/ Loving you has made me bananas -?

Your red scarf matches your eyes
You close your cover before striking
Your father had the shipfitter blues
Loving you has made me bananas.

You burned your finger that evening
While my back was turned.
I asked the waiter for iodine,
But I dined all alone.

And then I think it goes back to "your red scarf..."


Title: "Loving You Has Made Me Bananas"
words and music by Guy Marks, 1968

I was an obnoxious child. I memorized the song after hearing it on the radio, and used to torment my brothers and sisters (and parents) by singing it. Didn't you do that when you were young?

No, I just remember seeing Marks do his comedy routine on the Ed Sullivan Show. Thanks very much for your reply. Please see if you can help with my "lost song" mentioned in my posting "they kiss while whistlin'" and e-mail me at rodney@druid.com please if you know anything. I don't check this forum that often lately.

The version that I remember:

Your Red dress matches your eyes;
Your Yellow scarf matches your pyjamas,
Fathers got the Shipfitter Blues,
and loving you has Made me Bananas.

OH MY GOSH....I've been searching for this song for years...my mother sang it to me and then began driving my children crazy with it all their life. I thought she made it up or something. I wish I could hear the actual recording of it...can't tell you how glad I am to hear that I wasn't the only child drove bananas by this song.

LOVING YOU HAS MADE ME BANANAS
(Words and Music by Guy Marks)

Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes.
You closed your cover before striking.
Father had the shipfitter blues.
Loving you has made me bananas.

Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes.
You closed your cover before striking.
Father had the shipfitter blues.
Loving you has made me bananas.

Oh, you burnt your finger that evening,
While my back was turned.
I asked the waiter for iodine,
But I dined all alone.

Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes.
You closed your cover before striking.
Father had the shipfitter blues.
Loving you has made me bananas.

[No chords, I found a midi:

If you'd like to hear the original version of this song - it was played on a radio show called "Crap From The Past" back in 2003. An archive of the broadcast is at the link below - the song is in the third show segment.

"My Girl, Bill"

Bill walked me to my door last night
And he said, 'Before I go
There's something about our love affair
That I have a right to know
I said, "Let's not stand out here like this
What would the neighbors think
Why don't we just...step inside
And I'll fix us both a drink"

My girl, Bill
My, my, girl, Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl, my girl)
My girl, Bill

William's hands were shaking
As he took his glass of wine
And I could see we both felt the same
When his eyes met mine
I said, "'Who we love and why we love
It's hard to understand
So let's just sit here on the couch
And face this, man to man"

My girl, Bill
My, my, girl, Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl, my girl)
My girl Bill

Bill, you know we just left her place
And we both know what she said
She doesn't want to see your face
And she wishes you were dead
Now, I know we both love her
And I guess we always will
But you're gonna have to find another
'Cause she's my girl...Bill

My girl, Bill
My, my, girl, Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl, my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my little girl
My girl, Bill

My girl, Bill
My, my, girl, Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl, my girl)
My girl, Bill

Fantastic - a friend was asking me to find "Loving You Has Made Me Bananas" only the other day.

She'd gone to a fancy dress party where there was supposed to be a theme of song titles, and she pucked this one for her costume, with a great heavy bunch of bananas incorporated. Trouble was, no one had ever heard of it. She felt a right banana, she said.

Anyway, I promised to try to find it, but no luck. Of course I should have tried the Mudcat without wasting any time.

Now can anyone tell me how to copy the relevant file from that link that nice nameless GUEST (Date: 09 Jul 06 - 11:30 AM) gave us? I mean so that I can stick it on a CD to play on an ordinary CD player, and give it to her.

Oh, this is all very well, but what about the introduction? It went something like:

"Tonight's broadcast comes to you from the _____ Room, high atop the Hotel Sheets, overlooking the uptown section of downtown Pottstown"


Which of you asphalt Einsteins remembers the rest of the intro????

I love that song. I am bananas also.

Guest - the introduction is also discussed on mudcat in another thread (possibly with the same name, but on a different occasion) You can read the posting from John in Brisbane on the Other Bananas Thread .
Quack!

I sang this song to my wife for years. She thought I made it up. One morning she heard it on the radio. She woke me up yelling, "THE'RE SINGING YOUR SONG ON THE RADIO". Then I told her the truth.
