Subject: ADD: Sindbad the Sailor (from Popeye)
SINDBAD THE SAILOR
[From the cartoon film "Popeye The Sailor Meets Sindbad The Sailor" (1936)]
(Sammy Timberg / Bob Rothberg / Sammy Lerner)


Jack Mercer as Popeye & Gus Wickie as Sindbad - 1936




SINDBAD:
I'm Sindbad the Sailor, so hearty and hale
I live on an island on the back of a whale
It's a whale of an island, that's not a bad joke
Its lord and its master is this handsome bloke

Who's the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?
Sindbad the Sailor!

I scare all creation on land or on sea
But talk about women, they all fall for me
I take my adventures wherever they're found
I don't wanta brag, folks, but I've been around

Who's the most phenomenal extra-special kind of fellow?
Sindbad the Sailor!

From the Valley of Serpents these diamonds I took
I cleaned out those serpents with one dirty look!

Now look at this monster, so strong and so huge
He'd frighten King Kong, but he's only my stooge
The capture of Boola for me was just fun
Whoever said two heads were better than one, hah-hah

Who's the most phenomenal extraordinary fellow?
(Youse! Sindbads the Sailor!)

On one of my travels, I ran into this
Now there was a thrill I'd be sorry to miss
He spread out his wings, and the sunlight grew dim
He took me in his feet, but I ran off with him

Who's the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?
Sindbad the Sailor!

Who's the most phenomenal extra-special kind of fellow?
Sindbad the Sailor!

I'm afraid of nobody under the sun
All I say is "Boo!" and my enemies run!

Who's the most remarkable extraordinary fellow?
POPEYE: It's Popeye the sailor man!
SINDBAD: Who?

POPEYE:
Popeye the sailor man
I'm strong to the finich
'Cause I eats me spinach
I'm Popeye the sailor man

I'm one tough gazookas
Which hates all palookas
What ain't on the up and square
I biffs and I boffs 'em
And always outroughs 'em
But none of 'em gets nowhere

If anyone dasses to risk me fisks
It's 'Bop!' and it's 'Wham!', understand?
So keep good behav'our
That's your one lifesaver
With Popeye the sailor man

I'm Popeye the sailor man
Popeye the sailor man
I'm strong to the finich
'Cause I eats me spinach
I'm Popeye the swag whaler man!

Who's the most remarkable extraordinary fellah?
(You, Popeye the Sailor!)
