I am looking for the name of the little ditty that I know from the Theme of Popeye cartoons, not the part with the Lyrics "I'm strong to the finish cause I eat my spiach" though that may be part of the tune I'm looking for. It starts out kind of like this Toodle-oot doot tooot toodle oodle oout..... (Oh that song I am sure you are thinking) Any Ideas? Thanks Nick

Less than 10 minutes for a audio reply...This place is amazing. I have it as the 'ring' on my cell phone. Is that abuse of technology or what? It actually goes through most of the tune not just a measure or two. It takes me that long to find the damn thing and figure out how to answer it.

Are there lyrics to the Sailor's Hornpipe? (Yes, I did check the DT!)

Also, is there a home page for JC's Tunefinder that more thoroughly explains how to use it and what all the notations mean? (The little chart isn't helping me much to wrap my head around it.)

Sailor's Hornpipe, aka College Hornpipe can be found in many military fife tune books, such as the one published by Ft. Snelling in St. Paul, Minnesota. Widely collected, it can also be found in many fiddle tune collections such as The Phillips Collection of Fiddle Tunes by Stacy Phillips published by Mel Bay. It is also in Paul Brody's Fiddler's Fake Book. The tune itself dates from the last quarter of the 18th century according to Samuel P. Bayard in his book Dance to the Fiddle, March to the Fife: Instrumental Folk Tunes in Pennsylvania.

Don't know if there are words (particularly ones written at the same time as the tune), but I worked one summer with an actor who had had to master the dance, and an impressive thing it was, involving right-arm-across stomach, left-arm-across-small-of-back, then reversing, and then shading-eye-with either-hand and peering off to the sides, while sort of laterally hopping. I was consumed with envy. The whole thing would probably become insanely complicated with a penny whistle involved. A person might hurt himself.

There are words collected by Doerflinger (see Shantymen & Shantyboys):

Kids stio me in the supermarket, asking if I'M Popeye. I finally decided to go along with it. (I must admit I look a little like him, certainly have the background) They ask me for my autograph and I write, "P. EYE" So here's the song that you'r looking for. It has nothing to do with any hornpipe. The rhythm is "Waltz Clog" The words, as follows.

I'M ONE MEAN GAZOOKAS DON'T LIKE NO PALOOKAS,,,
WHAT AINT ON THE "UPS AN' SQUARES"
i BIFFS 'EM AN' BOPS 'EM AN' ALWAYS OUTROUGHS 'EM AN' NOBODY GETS SOWHERES.
IF ANYONE DARES-ES TO RISK ME FISKS
IT'S BIFF AN' IT'S BOP, UNDERSTAND?
SO KEEP GOOD BEHAVIOR IT'S SURE A LIFE SAVER
I'M POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN

I'M POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN, I'M POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN
i "yAM" WHAT i "YAM" AN' THAT'S ALL THAT I "YAM"
i'M POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN.

Correct the first line of the preceding to read" Kids follow me in and the third line of the song ends with, "AN' NOBODY GETS NOWHERES"
the melody as follows. Rhythm is "Waltz clog) each note represents a syllable of the lyrics, O.K.?

G A A A D E F G G G C D E F G F E D G
G A A A D E F G G G C D E F G F E D C
G A A A C A G E G E G G G F E A
F G G G D E F G F E D C

in the key of "C". If this doeswn't suffice, call the phone # I'm sending you in the P.M.'S or send your adress , also by P>M> and I;ll send you a tape.

Regards, "Popeye"

The notation you gave me is just the kind of thing I am looking for, but I think as I said in my first posting there is another tune, or part of the same tune, but it is not the melody that goes with the lyrics.It starts out kind of like this Toodle-oot doot tooot toodle oodle oout.... THanks for the above though I will play with it! Nick

As noted above, it might be found as 'College Hornpipe'. The actual Popeye SONG has collected a large number of mostly bawdy verses - has anyone made a collection of them? A mild example


I'm Popeye the sailor Man
I live in a caravan
There's a hole in the middle
Where I have a piddle
I'm Popeye the sailor Man

I'm Popeye the sailor man. (toot, toot).

SharonA, if you click on find wide you'll see what the codes mean. The PDF or the GIF versions should display as sheet music.

I can't figure out Index, but the meter column is your time signature & the next column gives the key.

MMario, it works for penneywhistle. A penneywhistle is in D, so you just download the D version.

I first learned these lyrics at Navy boot camp (Great Lakes, where else?)
as a member of the Recruit Performance Company (Triple Threat)

Bluejacket's Hornpipe

I'm a Navy Man, and I'm proud as can be,
I'm a Navy Man, and I sail upon the sea.
Wherever there's commotion,
I am there to guard the ocean,
I am glad that I was born to be a Navy man.
I will never envy soldiers stationed at a fort,
For I'd rather have a girfriend waiting at each port.
Ship Ahoy! Great Lakes(*) has made me proud to be a Navy Man,
I'm glad that I was born to be a Navy Man!

* Insert ship or command name here.

Want another bawdy verse to the Popeye song?
Well, here it is, anyway

I'm Popeye the Sailor man
I'm Popeye the Sailor man
I love to go swimmin'
With bare nekkid wimmin
I'm Popeye the Sailor man.

OK, should I apologize now, or wait for some one to get her nose out of joint?

I should have said that you can click onwards from there to bring up the tune in various other formats -all fairly self-explanatory, unlike the way the options are presented elsewhere in the tunefinder.

M
One of the peculiarities, which I fall into, myself every now and then, is
IF THE WORD ENDS IN " I N", ADD A "G" (SOMETIMES O-N OR A=N) LIKE IN, BOSTING MASSACHUSSETTS. OF "CAPTING" INSTEAD OF "cAPTAIN" But, if the word ends in "I N G" , knock off the "G" Which leaves us with,

I LOVES TO GO SWIMMIN'
WITH BALDHEADED "WIMMING"

GUEST NICK: Yes that is exactly what you're looking for. In the movie, "Popeye" Robin Williams sings it near the end of the movie. In the old Popeye cartoon "Sinbad " Popeye sings it "himself"
As I stated previously, it is a "Waltz Clog" not a hornpipe and th3e refrain is the well known, "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man," etc

They do play the "Sailors Hornpipe" at th4e beginning of most of the cartoons, but that is not the Popeye theme. The one I posted above is. Believe it or not, I did research this, when I started to look like Popeye, and l;itle kids were asking me for Popeye's autograph.

Here's an original "Jody Gibson" by the way, it's an alternate lyric for "Anchors Aweigh+

ANCHORS THEY WEIGH A LOT
AND WELL THEY SHOULD
ANCHORS ARE MADE OF IRON
SELDOME MADE OF WOO-OO-OO-OOD
IRON, IT SINKS A LOT
?WOOD'S LIGHT, AND, FLOATS.
THAT'S WHY THE ANCHOR'S IRON
WOOD'S FOR, BUILDING,
WOOD'S FOR, BUILDING BOATS.

If anyone wants it, it's yours!! Free./
