The Lyrics

Okay, I really got into this song...had to do another..My girlfriend and I really got a lot of milage dressing up as Popeye and Olive last halloween, so it's been a theme
OYL

I’ve never seen a dame I can’t impress
I’ve beaten up a lot of swabs in the movies
I keep some spinach in my vest
I say “Blow me down!” for I’m so manly

For every day is like, broke teeth, sailin’, fightin’ in the bar room
Blood stains, Bluto, every single cartoon
Broken chair, we’re punching animals, kids and teens
And everybody’s like twisted, mangled, turned into a pretzel
Insane antics, goin’ for the sight gag
On a tear, but I still got me a love affair

For I’m dating Miss Oyl (OYL)
She don’t have a figure
Because she’s built a little odd
She’s got a very skinny bod
Sort of like a ruler (ruler)
Hangs around with Swee’ Pea
That baby he drools, he drools, he drools
That Olive’s a fantasy

I yam Popeye..I’ve sailed the sea
I have a goil in every port and they party
But there’s just one who’s friend and foe that I want to kiss
I want her for my honey

For every date is like, broke teeth, flailin’, fightin’ in the bar room
Burgers, Wimpy, every single cartoon
Broken chair, we’re punching animals, cars and trains
And everybody’s like twisted, mangled, turned into a pretzel
Insane antics, goin’ for the sight gag
On a tear, but I still got me a love affair

For I’m dating Miss Oyl (OYL)
She don’t have a figure
For every time I go inside
Her hips become three times as wide
Sort of like a ruler (ruler)
Hangs around with Swee’ Pea
That baby he drools, he drools, he drools
That Olive’s my destiny

Ooh Ooh oh
She’s thinner than a stringy bean
And I’m in love with someone lean
Ooh Ooh Oh
She got a shape just like some boys
Got a hair bun and a lovely voice

And I’m dating Miss Oyl (OYL)
She don’t have a figure
Because she’s built just like a string
She’s quite a challenge for my thing
Sort of like a ruler (ruler)
Hangs around with Swee’ Pea
That baby he drools, he drools, he drools
That Olive’s a fantasy

I can see/hear why you got into this song, it has got that perfect-use-of-voice-over-not-really-any-instruments-that-you'll-remember drive that only nails it as a big hit once or twice every ten years - with Sinead O'Connor's "Nothing compares 2 U" as maybe the most notable example in music history.

If interested you might wanna lend an ear to Dilba's "I'm sorry", a local Swedish hit in the same vein from long back that at the time broke the record for highest ever number of weeks at the national list's number one spot.

Incredibly original! Flawlessly formed! And best of all, it's Friggin' Hilarious!

You're truly harkening back to the yukkier years of yore a la Kristoff, Spaff, et al. yankovic with this delightful ditty.

I dare you to go the John A. Barry route and do 100 of these.
