Subject: Lyrics Request: Me Brother Sylveste
From: Jimbo -->
Date: 15 Mar 97 - 08:14 PM

I heard a song played several times around and it is called:

"Me Brother Sylveste" (I think)

Something like this:

That was me brother Sylveste [What's he got?] He's got 40 thousand medals on his chest [Big Chest!]

He's got an arm like a leg And a punch that could sink a battleship [Big Ship!]

If anyone knows where I can get all the lyrics for this song, please let me know:

The song is called Big Strong Man, and it is on a thread from 1/13/97. To get there, click on the box at the top of the page that currently reads 30 days til you get the timing that you need. Good luck.

Just in case you couldn't find it -


Have you heard about the big strong man, Who lived in a caravan? Have you heard about the Jeffrey Johnston fight? Lord, what a hell of a fight! You can take all the heavyweights you got. (What 'cha got?) We gotta lad who can beat the whole lot. He used to ring the bells in the belfry, Now he's gonna fight Jack Dempsey.

CHORUS: He was me brother Sylvest (What's he got?) A row of forty medals on his chest (Big chest!) He killed fifty bad men in the West; He knows no rest Think of the man, Hell's fire, Don't push, just shove, Plenty of room for you and me. He's got an arm, (Got an arm) Like a leg (Like a leg) And a punch that would sink a battle ship (Big ship) It takes all the army and the navy to put the wind up Sylvest.

He thought he'd take a trip to Italy; And he thought that he'd go by sea. He jumped off the harbour in New York, And he swam like a great big shark. He saw the Lusitania in distress (What'd he do?) Put the Lusitania on his chest, (Big chest) Drank all the water in the sea And he walked all the way to Italy. CHORUS

He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan, So they brought out the big brass band. He played every every instrument they'd got. What a lad, he played the whole lot, The old church bell will ring, (Hell's bells) The old church choir will sing. (Hell's choir) They all turned out to say farewell, To my big brother Sylvest. CHORUS


enjoy it! Tony
