Second Banana is a song sung by Diddy Kong during the episode "Kong for a Day", from the Donkey Kong Country animated series, following Cranky Kong's call for Diddy to foil King K. Rool's plot to take over the barrel factory in Kongo Bongo Island. Swinging through the treetops, the little Kong comes to realize being the future ruler and replacing Donkey Kong is no easy feat.

What do you expect from someone
Who has never, ever been the king before?
Never had to save the day
Now I've no idea what's in store

Second banana's what I am
I never thought this job would be
Full of so much misery
Second banana's what I know
I'm just not cut out to be the hero

Maybe it's a twist of fate
But I can never recreate the ape he was
I'm the tutti to his frutti
And the peach to his fuzz

Second banana's what I am
We made such a perfect team
Now I'm all alone, it seems
Second banana's what I know
I'm just not cut out to be the hero
The hero...
The hero...
The hero...
The hero...
The hero!
