ALL THE GIRLS LOVE A REAL JACK TAR (Green) As recorded by: Leslie Holmes (as Roy Leslie) Acc. By Studio Band, Dir. Jay Wilbur Recorded May 1935 When you see a sailor cruising on the shore You’ll find a girl somewhere Jack’s the kind of Romeo the girls adore He knows how to make them care There’s something in the bearing of a sailor A something which we never can define He may be just a Captain or a plain Jack Tar But still he gets the girlies every time Nobody love the ladies like a sailor And the girls love a real Jack Tar Oh my, can you wonder why When the sailor’s always got a saucy twinkle in his eye He’s the boy for loving the girls It’s the way with every sailor Yo-heave-ho, what ho my lads, what ho All the girls love a real Jack Tar Now Jack’s the boy for romance When he’s on the spree He treats the girlies fine Leave it to the sailors in the King’s Navy They all have a real good time For when the British Navy drops an anchor In Pompey, or in China, or Peru There’s sure to be a sweetie in the town somewhere For every single member of the crew Nobody love the ladies like a sailor And the girls love a real Jack Tar Oh my, can you wonder why When the sailor’s always got a saucy twinkle in his eye He’s the boy for loving the girls It’s the way with every sailor Yo-heave-ho, what ho my lads, what ho All the girls love a real Jack Tar (Musical Break) Yo-heave-ho, what ho my lads, what ho All the girls love a real Jack Tar (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley - November 2013)
