Have you heard about the big strong man?
He lives in a caravan
Have you heard about the Jeffrey Johnson fight?
Oh, Lord what a hell of a fight
Well you can take all the heavyweights you've got
(what ye got?)
We got a lad who will beat the whole lot
He used to work here as a doorman
Now he's gonna fight George Foreman

That's my brother, Sylvest (what's he got?)
He's got a row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty barmen in the West
He knows no rest
Bigger the man, hell's fire don't push (just shove)
Plenty o'room for you and me
He's got an arm like a leg
And a punch that would sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all the army and the navy
To take the ball of George Best

And he thought he'd take a trip to Italy
And he thought that he'd go by the sea
He jumped off the harbour in New York
And he swam like a man from Cork
He saw the Lusitania in distress (what did he do?)
He shoved the Lusitania up his dress (big dress!)
And he drunk all the water in the sea
And he walked all the way to Italy

That was my brother, Sylvest (what's he got?)
He's got a row of forty medals on his chest (big chest!)
He killed fifty barmen in the West
He knows no rest
Bigger the man, hell's fire don't push (just shove)
Plenty o'room for you and me
He's got an arm like a leg
And a punch that would sink a battleship (big ship!)
It takes all the army and the navy
To take the bra off Mae West
