Well, thanks everyone who replied to my request for the "Banana Splits", 
here's what i came up with in the end. If you don't like it let me know what 
you don't like about it and i'll try to fix it.  Good luck! It's a good 
little tune that everyone sorta knows but can't remember the words.  

ABOUT THE SONG: each verse is a semi-tone higher than the last so when 
changing verses slide into it to enhance the sound of raising the pitch.
Example, when changing between the chorus and second verse make sure you 
slide the F to F#.

INtroduction Chorus:
   E         A        E
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la
   E               B7 E
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la    
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/misc_television/banana_splits_theme_crd_ver_3.html ]
Verse 1:
   One banana, two bananas, three bananas, four
   Bb                            F
   Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more
   Over hills and highway the banana buggies go
   Bb                         F
   Coming on to bring you the banana splits show

   F         Bb       F  
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la
   F               C  F 
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la

Verse 2:
   Four bananas, three bananas, two bananas, one
   B                          F#
   All bananas playing in the bright warm sun
   Flipping like a pancake, popping like a cork
   B               F#
   Fleagle, bingo, drupper and snork

   F#        B        F#
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la
   F#              C# F#            (use a c shape chord here on the next 
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la             frets up because the change is quick.)

   G                   A      G
   Freakin' out and havin' f-un       (the chords in the bridge i play
   B                    C    B         as bar chords. E.G G-3rd fret,  
   Freakin' out and havin' f-un        a-5th fret, B-7th fret, c-8th fret
   D               E      D            etc.)
   Lots of fun for everyo-one

   G         C        G
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la
   G               D  G
   Tra-la-la la-la-la-la

  End the song any way you want  (Even with an oh-o Jungo.)
