Oh no! Not he!
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him! Take me!
Benjamin is straighter dan de tall palm tree

I hear de steel drums sing dere song,
Dey're sing-in' man you know you got it wrong
I hear de voice of de yellow bird,
Sing-in' in de tree, dis is quite absurd

Oh yes! It's true!
Benjamin is straighter dan de big bamboo.
No ifs! No buts!
Benjamin is honest as coconuts

Sure as de tide wash de golden sand,
Benjamin is an innocent man
Sure as bananas need de sun,
We are de criminal guilty ones

Oh no! Not he!
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him! Take me!
Benjamin is straighter dan de tall palm tree

La la la la la...

Oh no! Not he!
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him! Take me!
Benjamin is straighter dan de tall palm tree

Sure as de tide wash de golden sand,

Sure as bananas need de sun,
We are de criminal guilty ones

Oh no! Not he!
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him! Take me!
Benjamin is straighter dan de tall palm tree

La la la la la...

Oh no! Not he!
How you can accuse him is a mystery
Save him! Take me!
