Da Da Da Da Da Dum

Caught myself humming to a familiar tune. Did not realize what it was before my colleague asked why am I so happy about. It was nothing in particular and I asked him whether he knew what song it was. And so I hummed louder. He shrugged his shoulders. I added in the “poot poot” for good measure and instantly he remembers. Nah… here is the song.

Lyrics:
Oh I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man
I’m strong to the finich
‘Cuz I eats me spinach
I’m Popeye the Sailor Man

[backup singers]
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man
He’s strong to the finich
‘Cuz he eats his spinich
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man

I’m one tough gazookas
That hates all palookas
That ain’t on the up and square
I biffs ‘em and buffs ‘em
And always out-roughs ‘em
And none of ‘em gets nowheres.

[backup singers]
If anyone dass’es to risk his fisk
It’s boff and it’s wham unnerstan’

So keep good behavior
That’s your one lifesaver
With Popeye the Sailor Man

[backup singers]
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man
He’s strong to the finich
‘Cuz he eats his spinich
He’s Popeye the Sailor Man

[backup singers]
Popeye…Popeye…Popeye!
Popeye the Sailor Man!

A song written by Harry Nilsson which encouraged my spinach eating years.

  1. Everything is okay. I was back to my parents house for several months. Enjoying a long long long holiday. Hard to get internet connection there. I’ll be here more often now :-)
