The Lyrics

I just realized my next entry will be #50 at Am I Right. Thanks to all who have made it so much fun.
Who's hangin' out at greasy spoon diners,
Bumming for burgers - his claim to fame?
Who says he'll gladly pay you on Tuesday?
Everyone knows it's Wimpy.

Who's mooching off of Olive and Popeye,
Eyeing a burger held by Sweet Pea?
Who's talkin' sweet to butter up Sea Hag?
Everyone knows it's Wimpy.

And Whimpy wears big neckties,
A bowler hat - and draws flies.
And Wimpy has hands that try,
To grab your fries (to grab your fries),
Burger and fries (Burger and fries...).

*** Hornpipe Solo ***

And Wimpy has hollow legs,
His belly's an empty keg.
And Wimpy just begs and begs,
For you to give (oh, won't you give),
Him just a whiff (a Wimpy Wiff...).

Who's got a schnoz that's pressed at your window,
Sniffing for burgers in every breeze?
Who wolfs it down with nary a swallow?
Everyone knows it's Wimpy!

Who's coming 'round to sample your dinner,
Waiting until nobody else sees?
Who'll even snatch your last catsup bottle?
Everyone knows it's Wimpy!

Who's sneakin' 'round your refrigerator,
While everybody's upstairs asleep?
Who'll dream tonight - it's raining hamburgers?
Everyone knows it's Wimpy!

Ha ha - JD. We have a favorite lunch spot here called John the Greek's and the guy running it is really from Greece. He has Coke but no Pepsi. If you ask for Pepsi he does the same thing as SNL's protrayal of the Billy Goat Grill in Chicago. I always ask for Pepsi when I go there. And this place is really a greasy spoon. It is a converted old gas station that's run in a mom and pop's fashion. Great Greek food though.

I have fond memories of sitting around on Sunday morning watching Tom Hatten host all the great Fleischer cartoons. I just don't remember who I was watching them with. I'm sure you saw my "Olive and Popeye". Funny Dave.

Thanks for all the comments, everybody - I appreciatesk it! Just a li'l FYI for ya: Max Fleischer made a cartoon version of Gulliver's Travels back in 1939, and the character, "Gabby" sounded a lot like Popeye. Does anyone remember, "There's a giant on the beach!!"? Rick D used to do a very funny imitation of Gabby singing "All's well, what's a rainy day?".
