Who's that comin'
Who's that strummin'
That's the man with the banjo
For a penny he'll play any song
That's happy and gay
Folks all smile and stop awhile
Because the man with the banjo
Makes their troubles burst like bubbles chasing worries away
See the children running after
While he plays his merry song
All their hearts are filled with laughter
As they tag along
Shadows fallin', sandman's callin'
Here goes the man with the banjo
Gaily strummin' softly strummin'
On his merry old way

This was actually a popular song at the time, & I remember reading in some articles on the banjo that it contributed to keeping the banjo in the public consciousness at a time when the banjo had faded in popularity in Pop music.
