My Little Bimbo Down On The Bamboo Isle
Words by Grant Clarke
Music by Walter Donaldson
Irving Berlin Inc.
Sailor Bill McCoy, was a daring sailor boy, His ship got wrecked
a-while, on a Fee-jee-ee-jee Isle. He led a savage life, and hunted
with a knife. He said I'll tell you about it don't tell my wife.
William's boss said, "Bill," a Captain's job you'll fill, Upon a
ship bound North, today it's sailing forth. A Captain's job is fine,
but Bill said, "I decline." I'll take half pay as a sailor on that ship
I've got a bimbo down on Bamboo Isle She's waiting there for me
Beneath a bamboo tree Believe me she's got the other bimbos
beat a mile. She dances gayly, daily, she'd be a hit with Barnum
Bailey I'll build a bungaloo on the Bamboo Isle 'Cause when I go
again I'll stay awhile I've seen wrecks, Plenty of wrecks out on
the stormy sea But by heck there never was a wreck like the
wreck she made of me For all she wore was a great big Zulu
smile My little bimbo down on the Bamboo Isle.
