(kinky friedman & panama red)

My heart is on my sleeve,
Do you still believe ?
Are you listenin' to the tide roll in, watchin' ships at sea ?
When I come sailin' home again will you be there for me,
There for me ?
Treasure ships of yore
Grace the ocean floor
Columbus sailed for italy, columbus sailed for spain.
Columbus sailed a wishin' well, columbus died in chains,
Died in chains.

I don't pretend to know every answer
To everything that life may ask of me.
Hey, I'm popeye the sailor man
I'm popeye the sailor man
Hey, popeye the sailor man
And I sail the lonely sea eternally.

My true love calls to me from far across the sea.
She says, Ў°red skies in the mornin'
Sailor take warnin'
Sail with me tonight
Sailor's delight, sailor's delight.Ў±

I don't pretend to know every answer
To everything that life may ask of me.
Hey, I'm popeye the sailor man
Popeye the sailor man,
Popeye the sailor man
And I sail the lonely sea eternally.

She said, Ў°popeye the sailor man
Popeye the sailor man
Oh, popeye the sailor man
Sail on home to me, come sail with me.Ў±
