Bandana Days  (1922) 
Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake
Why the dearest days of my life
Were Bandana days,
Bandana days though filled with turmoil, trouble and strife,
Dearest mem'ries will live always.
[Refrain]:
In those dear old Bandana days,
Cane and cotton ne'er forgotten,
Bandana days.
And those quaint old
Bandana ways,
When our dads were courting our dear mammies,
They were sure some bashful sammies,
And in all their Bandana plays,
Banjos strummin', they'd be hummin'
Bandana lays.
And in the pale moonlight they'd swing left and right,
In those dear old Bandana days.
