Popeye The Sailor Man

There once was a sailor named Popeye He got through the navy with one eye Wherever he sailed The dames would all hail They knew Popeye was not a bad guy Popeye you know had a sweetie A long legged gal not to meaty Olive Oyl was her name Popeye's love was insane For his love was always entreaty The trouble you know was called Bluto A very strong sailor who knew judo He was after the girl That made his head twirl For he felt they made quite a duo Popeye was not very happy He spoke to his father name Pappy Pappy said to him son Get rid of the bum You don't want to lose and feel crappy Popeye was really quite angry He was really upset and cranky So he took his old friend Tied him up in a bend Walked away a proud and true Yankee

And I'm sure he had his spinach before he defended Ms.Oly's honor! I grew up watching Popeye and he is my all-time favorite cartoon character...I am considering getting a CD with all his classic cartoons...VERY funny and clever limerick, Mary and congratulations! - Tim
