The Lyrics

just about a year ago
i met miss olive oyl
seekin' her hand in marriage
givin' her a band of gold
she went mad...for this jerk
who's dressed in a sailor suit
oh lord...struck by popeye again

thought that he was seabound
i was ready for him to go
olive and me are through
after seven months or more
although his face is funny
looks like they're more than friends
oh lord...i'm struck by popeye again

the man from the navy scene
ate spinach every day
it gave him new direction
best stay out of his way
he gobbles it down...the whole damn can
and when he does, you're through
oh lord...struck by poeye again

if i'd only been a sailor
when i was strong and young
would olive oyl have looked my way ?
would wedding bells have rung ?
i'd like to catch that lame-brain
beatin's, i would give
oh lord...i'm struck by popeye again
oh lord...i'm struck by popeye again

Was that supposed to have been Bluto/Brutas? I have been a Popeye fan all my life and I enjoyed a song about popeye sung to the tune of "Lodi"!

Alvin - loved it. 5's. Say, do you know what happened when the Pope went to Mount Olive? Yeah, you guessed it, Popeye socked him the his eye. I was going to take a couple days completely parody-free but I had an idea 'pop' into my head while I was stuck on the Freeway earlier today. So I'm putting one up tomorrow - an oldie from "Moby Grape". You MIGHT be the only one here who remembers it (I'm betting you do, although I could be wrong - but I am going to give an audio link that covers about 1/2 the song anyway).
