I asked my woman what shall I do
To keep her honest and keep her true
She said "Sparrow all I want from you
Is a little little piece
Of the big bamboo"

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo grows up straight and strong
It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Mr. Wooding!

I gave my woman a sugarcane
Very very sweet, I must explain
She gave it back to me to my surprise
She said she love the flavour
But not the size

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
(The big bamboo) It's so big and long
(The big bamboo) It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

I gave my woman a coconut
She told me "It is ok, but"
To my surprise she gave it back to me
"What good is the nut without the tree?"

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo is so very long
(The big bamboo) It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Aye aye yeh, aye aye aye

I gave my woman a banana plant
She told me she thought it is elegant
It is much too nice to go to waste
But then it's much too soft to suit her taste

She said the big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo is so very long
(The big bamboo) It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Now ever since the world began
Woman were always fooling man
But we found out the women were always true
To men like me with the big bamboo

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo is so very long
(The big bamboo) It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Now it have a lot of men sitting here
Posing off and relaxing in the chair
But that one over there are going to make you look small
Your wife tell me you ain't got no bamboo at all

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo it it always strong
(The big bamboo) It stand up so straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Now the big fat fellow sitting over there
You think that you are a big-wig heir
But -- I'm going to spoil your joy
The ladies say you have a bamboo like a little boy

The big bamboo grows out from the ground
The big bamboo, so, so big and long
(The big bamboo) It stand up straight and tall
And the big bamboo pleases one and all

Bamboo, garçon!

The Big Bamboo!
