"It's only me from over the sea"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"I'm heart 'n' soul of the Brendom Docks"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"I'll serve the docks until I croak
I shunt and sing and drink and joke
But I can't swim a bloomin' stroke"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel

"I'll come down and load your trucks
I'll come down and load your trucks
I'll come down and load your trucks"
Cried the crane called Carly

"Well, hurry before they bust down the gate"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"They moan and fuss, my engine roars"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"I'll spin you yarns and tell no lies
I'll keep the peace and company
I'll sing with trucks who'd black your eyes"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel

"Sing me a fine song low and sweet
Sing me a fine song low and sweet
Sing me a fine song low and sweet"
called the crane named Cranky

"Sixteen men riding in a truck",
said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"Yo-ho-heave-ho and a wagon of fuel",
sang Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"I'll ring and ring and join in the car,
a-hee a-ho, are you 'most done?
Hurry boys, let's peddle and run!",
said Salty the Dockyard Diesel

"Tell me that there's more like you?
Tell me that there's more like you?
Tell me that there's more like you?"
Said the crane Big Mickey

"I've got me kin in every port"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"The Sodor job is what I caught"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
"With my knowledge 'n' rythm 'n' tongue
I keeps the trucks in fair order
I do it all, and, boy, it's fun!"
Said Salty the Dockyard Diesel
Basically, this is just a song about our favourite Dockyard engine done to the tune of "Barnacle Bill the Sailor", based on this version sung by Billy Costello, the voice of the original Popeye; www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu8hLS…

NOTE: I wasn't too sure about the lyrics of Salty's third verse, what with the Popeye voice, so I did the best I could by ear...

Hope you viewers like this.
