A SAILOR'S NOT A SAILOR 'TIL A SAILOR'S BEEN TATTOOED Ethel Merman & Mitzi Gaynor [MERMAN:] I'm an old salt [GAYNOR:] I'm a young salt [BOTH:] In the Navy we've been working very hard [MERMAN:] I was part of the Flotilla with Dewey in Manila [GAYNOR:] I'm a new recruit at the Brooklyn Navy yard [BOTH:] Tonight we're on a spree and feeling flow'ry [BOTH:] We've got a date with gals and drink and food [GAYNOR:] Across the Brooklyn Bridge and to the Bow'ry [MERMAN:] And I'm gonna get the kid tattooed [GAYNOR:] Tattooed? [MERMAN:] Tattooed! [BOTH:] A sailor's not a sailor 'til a sailor's been tattooed [MERMAN:] Here's an anchor from a tanker That I sailed upon when first I went to sea Here's another of my mother Takes me back to when I sat upon her knee Here's a crimson heart with a Cupid's dart Here's a Battle Cruiser and when I sit down On that, too There's a tattoo Of my home town [GAYNOR:] To the Bow'ry [MERMAN:] To the Bow'ry [GAYNOR:] 'Cross the Brooklyn Bridge and I'm just in the mood [MERMAN:] He'll be filled with diff'rent mixtures And covered up with pictures [GAYNOR:] I can't wait to be, 'twill be great to be tattooed [MERMAN:] Tattooed? [GAYNOR:] Tattooed! [BOTH:] A sailor's not a sailor 'til a sailor's been tattooed
