MY LITTLE BIMBO (DOWN ON THE BIMBO ISLE) From the Broadway revue "Silks And Satins" (1920) (Grant Clarke / Walter Donaldson) Frank Crumit - 1920 Also recorded by: The Hoosier Hot Shots; Lu Watters; Bob Schulz & His Frisco Jazz Band; Papa Blue Jensen. Sailor Bill McCoy was a handsome sailor boy His ship got wrecked awhile, on a Fiji-Iji Isle He led a savage life and he hunted with a knife He said, "I'll tell you all about it, don't tell my wife, because.... I've got a Bimbo down on the Bamboo Isle She's waiting there for me, beneath a bamboo tree Believe me, she's got all the other Bimbo's beat a mile She dances daily, gayly, she'd make a hit with Barnum and Bailey I'll build a bungalow on the Bamboo Isle 'Cause when I go again, I'll stay awhile I've seen wrecks, plenty of wrecks out on the ragin' sea But, by heck, you've never seen a wreck like the wreck she made of me And, all she wore was a great big Zulu smile My little Bimbo Down on the Bamboo Isle William's boss said, "Bill, a Captain's job you'll fill On a ship that's going North, today it's going forth" A Captain's job is fine, but Bill said, "I'll decline I'll Take half pay as a sailor on that ship of mine, 'cause".... I've got a Bimbo Down on the Bamboo Isle She's waiting there for me beneath a bamboo tree Believe me, she's got all the other Bimbo's beat a mile She dances daily, gayly, she plays a mean ukelele I'll build a bungalow on the Bamboo Isle "Cause when I go again, I'll stay a while "What's that? What's a Bimbo mean? Please take my advice I don't know what "Bimbo" means, but I think it's something nice Everybody loves her, even the crocodiles My little Bimbo, down on the Bamboo Isle (Contributed by Mel - December 2007)
