Funny how pop culture is...this is a Jamaican folk song/work song that slaves/worke r s sang while they cut bananas and packed them to be shipped for export on the infamous banana boats of years gone by. But carry on with the Beetlejuice references

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 " .
