Instrumental arrangement, with variations, of the famous song by Frank Silver & Irving Cohn from 1923 about a Greek fruit seller who couldn't say "No"
The members of the duo take turns on the tune and there is also a section in harmonic minor just for fun.

The sound sample is an electronic preview.

There's a fruit store on our street,
It's run by a Greek
And he keeps good things to eat,
But you should hear him speak
When you ask him anything, never answers 'No'
He just 'yes -ses' you to death
And as he take your dough he tells you;

     Yes! we have no bananas we have no bananas today
     We've broad beans like bunions cabbahges and honions
     And all kinds of fruit and say,
     We have an old fashioned tomahto a nice Jersey potahto
     But yes! we have no bananas
     We have no bananas today
