Solid Ether

(Gonna take care ‘a some business.)

Check Mr. Popeye

You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Is your spinach running low?
You’d better check Mr. Popeye
You better buy some mo’
You’d better check that spinach
Olive’s in the danger zone

Well, Olive got all dolled up, went strolling down the street
She had to meet Popeye at a quarter to three
Out jumped ol’ Bluto as bold as can be
And he told poor Olive, “Chick your goin’ with me”

You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Is your spinach nice and green?
You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Cause that Bluto’s pretty mean
You’d better check that spinach
Olive’s in the danger zone

Well, Olive started yellin’ as loud as could be,
“Popeye! Popeye! Save poor me!”
Now, I’m repeatin’ the words that big Bluto said,
“If that little sucker shows up, I’ll bust his head”

You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Is your spinach getting stale?
You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Your complexion’s kinda pale
You’d better check that spinach
Olive’s in the danger zone

Popeye started searchin’ doin’ his famous moves
Put on his shades and his wide brim hat and got into his groove
He knocked ol’ Bluto out, flat on his back
Got away with Olive in a lime green Cadillac

You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Don’t let your spinach spoil
You’d better check Mr. Popeye
Bad Bluto’s got your goil
You’d better check that spinach
Olive’s in the danger zone
