I knew the song as the "Ball of Ballymuire".
OK, you asked for it. My step-father sang this in the
Merchant Marine. "Christopher Columbo".
"They sailed past San Salvador in search of shining booty,
A naked whore lay on the beach, my God she was a beauty.
The sailor boys jumped overboard divesting shirts and collars.
In fifteen minutes by the clock, she made ten-thousand dollars.
Christopher Columbo, He thought the world was round-O!
That masterbaiting, fornicating son-of-a bitch Columbo."
some truth in the sentiment since Columbus was a mass-murderer
and exterminated the Taino and the Arawak Indians in San Salvador.
Why they have Columbus Day in the States as a holiday I don't know.
