Big Strong Man (Traditional (arr. by Beatnik Turtle Music/Owens))

Lyrics:

Have you heard about the big strong man?
He rolls in a custom van
Have you heard about the Tyson fight?
Oh, Lord what a hell of a fight

You can take all the heavyweights you’ve got
We’ve got a lad who can beat the whole lot
He used to work here as a doorman
Now he’s gonna fight George Forman

He's my brother Sylvest (what’s he got?)
A row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty bad men in the west
He knows no rest
Think of a man
Hells’ fire
Don’t push
Just shove
Plenty of room for you and me

He’s got an arm like a leg
And a punch that'd sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all the Army and the Navy
To knock the wind out of Sylvest

Now he thought he’d take a trip to Italy
He thought that he’d go by sea
He dove off the harbor in New York
And swam like a goddamn shark
He saw the Lusitania in distress (what he do?)
He put the Lusitania on his chest (big chest!)
He drank all the water in the sea
And he walked all the way to Italy

That was my brother Sylvest (what’s he got?)
A row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty bad men in the west
He knows no rest
Think of a man
Hells’ fire
Don’t push
Just shove
Plenty of room for you and me

He’s got an arm like a leg
And a punch that'd sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all the Army and the Navy
To knock the wind out of Sylvest

He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan
They brought out a big ass band
You can take all of the instruments you’ve got
We got a lad that can play the whole lot
And the old church bells will ring (hells bells!)
The old church choir will sing (hells fire!)
They all came to see the custom van
Driven by the big strong man

Who my brother Sylvest (what’s he got?)
A row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty bad men in the west
He knows no rest
Think of a man
Hells’ fire
Don’t push
Just shove
Plenty of room for you and me

He’s got an arm like a leg
And a punch that'd sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all the Army and the Navy
To knock the wind out of Sylvest
