My Little Bimbo Down On The Bamboo Isle - Song and Lyrics by Grant Clarke and Walter Donaldson

My Little Bimbo Down On The Bamboo Isle

My Little Bimbo Down On The Bamboo Isle

Year 1920

Words by Grant Clarke
Music by Walter Donaldson

Irving Berlin Inc.
1587 Broadway
New York

  First Verse
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.

Second Verse
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 of mine.

Chorus
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.
