I love this song. It means more than the words, it carried cultural significance of not only island peoples but those who can relate. This song means so much to me and it Carries much more than just a song out of the soundtrack of "Beetlejuice " .

We all remember that haunted dinner party right!!
I can't say this unequivocall y - b u t I DON'T think it has ANYTHING to do with slavery. It simply is about picking bananas at night-and wanting to get their work tallied-so they could GO HOME! AND SLEEP!
It's about WHY bananas are picked at night. The deadly tarantula hides in the banana bunches during the day, & go out at night to feed. SO-the SAFEST time to pick them is--AT NIGHT! Was told about that in Jamaica-as we walked by the unpicked bananas!!
Lol I had to play this song for my orcastra at school X)
