Me Ol’ Bamboo lyrics

  • by

Song lyrics to Me Ol’ Bamboo performed by Dick Van Dyke in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

A gentleman’s got a walking stick.
A seaman’s got a gaff.
And the merry men of Robin Hood
They used a quarterstaff.
On the Spanish plains inside their canes
They hide their ruddy swords.
But we make do with an old bamboo
And everyone applauds!
1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – Hey!
Me ol’ bamboo, me ol’ bamboo
You’d better never bother with me ol’ bamboo.
You can have me hat or me bum-ber-shoo
But you’d better never bother with me ol’ bamboo.Read More »Me Ol’ Bamboo lyrics
