Loving You Has Made Me Bananas
Written and Recorded by Guy Mark


Marks attracted international attention with the surprise novelty hit song "Loving 
You Has Made Me Bananas" (also remembered by its lyric "Your red scarf matches 
your eyes"), charting in April – May 1968 in the US, which parodied the medleys 
and other popular music conventions of the big band era. It was based on an old 
nightclub routine of Marks, featuring an affected band singer of the radio era 
broadcasting from a remote Pennsylvania town. The song hit number nineteen on the 
Hot Adult Contemporary chart and number fifty-one on the Hot 100. A re-release did 
similarly well in 1978, reaching number 25 in the UK Singles Chart. The UK chart 
showing led to an appearance by Marks on Top of the Pops in May 1978.

Original key is Ab, use a capo at fret 1 to play with the track. 
Play with a slight 'swing' feel 

        G                      G7
Oh your red scarf matches your eyes 
    C                       E7
You close your cover before striking 
A7                         Am     D7
Father had the ship fitter blues 
G              Em      Am      D7
Loving you has made me bananas 

Repeat Verse 

       Dm         G7          C
Oh you burnt your finger that evening 
      Dm      G7  C
While my back was turned 
  Em        A7         D 
I asked the waiter for iodine 
      Em A7      Am   D7
But I dined all alone 

Repeat Verse 

Repeat Bridge

Repeat Verse

I have tried this an other similar sites when I was stumped. I can never understand how people arrive at these chord charts, but between this and another site with ukelele chords I have just about nailed it. By figuring out what is wrong with this and the other chart, I have figured out a more accurate progression. If I have time, I will post my version as a correction. Maybe someone will correct that and we will eventually arrive at a serviceable chart. I think the key is locating the tonic bass notes. I don't think that there is a C maj nor a G7 in the verse, but I could very well be wrong. If I knew what I were doing, I wouldn't be checking out these sites in the first place! Thanks for putting this up.--Mister Misanthropy
