Dis is de day we make our pay-day,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
Oh, that banjo, that sevenstring-banjo,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!

2. Haul away for Campeachy Bay,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
Haul away an' stretch out for ye pay-day,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!

3. A dollar a day is a buckera's pay,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
Bend yer high shoes an' lavender breeks, boys,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!

4. There's me Sal, she's the gal for me, boys,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
I know she'll be a-waiting for me-a,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!

5. I'll bang on the banjo to show her my love-o,
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
Oh. that banjo, that ping-a, pong-a banjo!
Dance, gal, gimme de banjo!
