A Girl in Every Port

1
Pounding up and down the
 seas -- dodging into 
ports - a tramp schooner -

2
Spike Madden --
   Mate of the ships.

3
"Ahoy, aloft! Shake a leg!
 I've got a date with a
 dame in Holland."

4
Amsterdam --
  Another port on the
  endless cruise - a cargo
  loading - a mate with
  a date.

5
"Where'd you get that
 bracelet?"

6
"Ach! Mine heart goes
 pitty-pat ven I think of
 such a sailor!"

7
"That swab has been beat-
 ing my time in the last
 five ports."

8
"I'm tired of finding his
 heart and anchor mark
 on my women!"

9
Rio de Janeiro -
   Still trying to overhaul
   a heart and anchor.

10
"Have you been true to
 me, Baby?"

11
"Si, Seņor - twice."

12
"Yeh! True to me - and
 the Merchant Marine."

13
"When I catch that snooping
 sea-snipe, I'll put my trade-
 mark on his jaw!"

14
Central America -
   Just a port behind the
   Branding Romeo.

15
"THE GUARDS!"

16
"Doggone 'em! They spoil
 all the good fights! I hate
 'em!"

17
"So do I. Let's get 'em!"

18
"We were doing great, until
 they called out the army."

19
"I feel like somebody
 stroked me on the head
 with Brooklyn Bridge."

20
"Hey, Matie, pull my finger.
 It always goes out of joint
 when I hit anyone."

21
"So you're the bandy-legged
 little bantam I've been
 looking for!"

22
"Have a heart, Judge --
 that's all I got!"

23
"Thanks, Mate! I'll do as
 much for you in the next
 jail."

24
"Stow that stuff! I only
 bailed you out so I can
 knock your head off!"

25
"Why don't you stay up
 so I can sock you?"

26
"I can't swim."

27
"Let's pick another fight
 and go fifty-fifty on the 
 fun!"

28
"I'm going to be busy, but
 if you need me, sing out."

29
"Hey, Spike! I've got a
 swell fight going."

30
"Hey, Spike!"

31
"Lay off! I'm just about
 to do myself some good
 with this dame."

32
"HEY, SPIKE!"

33
Alongside - at San Pedro -
 With the two friends signed
 up as shipmates for life.

34
"Hurry up, Bill. I've got
 the address of a swell 
 girl - and she has a friend."

35
"I remember! This is the
 place - and she's got a
 figure like an eel!"

36
"Hey, Baby!"

37
"Hello, Sailor-man."

38
"How old you are, Son?"

39
"My Daddy's a sailor."

40
"Did you know my Daddy?"

41
"He won't be home any
 more - he got drownded."

42
"Mama, did you get
 the job?"

43
"Excuse us, Missus -- we
 got in the wrong place."

44
"We're going to play a
 game. Close your eyes 
 and don't open 'em --"

45
Spike and Bill -
   As time went on, sailors
   spoke of them together
   - like Tom and Jerry
   - Rock and Rye.

[dissolves to:]

46
Through the Mediterranean
  bound for France ---

47
"I just figured out that I've
 got enough money to
 settle down with."

48
"Why give me another pain
 when I got one in the
 tooth?"

49
Loading in Marseilles -
  Where a toothache
  reduces the menace
  to France by one-half.

50
"Introducing Mam'selle
 Godiva! Neptune's bride
 and the sweetheart of the
 sea!"

51
"I'm sorry you're all wet -"

52
"If you'll wait, I'll take your
 coat and dry it."

53
"I know that big mug, Spike,
 will get in trouble going
 ashore without me."

54
"Have you ever thought
 of settling down - a little
 farm - cows - chickens...
 and everything...?"

55
"That costs money."

56
"Is there any chance for a
 big walrus like me, Baby
 .....is there?"

57
"Sure! There's always
 a chance."

58
"Got a match?"

59
"It's ten after nine."

60
"It's a good thing we're 
 sailing tomorrow. Another
 week and you'd be
 cuckoo!"

61
"I ain't sailing. I'm in love!"

62
"You're not in love. You're
 just broke out all over with
 monkey-bites."

63
"- and nobody but a sap
 like you would jump ship
 for some sexy skirt."

64
"Shut your lying mouth.
 My girl's a lady!"

65
"That goes! You and me
 are through! I wouldn't
 sail on the same ocean
 with you!"

66
Sailing Time -
   A ship divided by water
   from land -- friends
   divided by a woman.

67
"Well, I didn't sail, either -"

68
"Didn't you?"

69
"Honest, Spike, I didn't
 mean that your skirt was
 a tramp --"

70
"I want you to know the
 dearest little girl in the
 world. She's got a heart
 like gold!"

71
"You two get acquainted
 while I rush a growler
 of beer."

72
"So you're Mam'selle
 Godiva, now? You used
 to be Tessie back in Coney
 Island."

73
"What did you ditch me
 for? I thought I tattooed
 your mark on my arm
 for keeps --"

74
"I can't help it if he hangs
 around. I've got most of
 his dough - and I'm about
 through."

75
"Ain't she sweet? And
 she's saving my money
 for me so I can't spend it."

76
"Say, Spike! I'm worried
 about a pal of mine. He's
 in love with a girl that's
 no good."

77
"And she's making a fool
 out of my friend."

78
"Some guys are just born
 saps, ain't they, Baby?"

79
"What would you do, Spike?
 Would you tell him?"

80
"What's the use? He
 wouldn't believe you, any-
 way."

81
"Your story almost broke
 my heart."

82
"Say! I wonder what he 
 was driving at?"

83
"Gimme my pants!"

84
"If Spike should come home
 and find you here, he'd
 kill both of us."

85
"I sent him on an errand,
 so I could see you."

86
"Nothin' doin', kid. That
 big ox means more to
 me than any woman."

87
"Where is he?"

88
"There's too many of you.
 Wait until I get help."

89
"SPIKE!"

90
"You didn't double-cross
 me, did you, Bill? Say
 you didn't ---"

91
"I didn't double-cross you,
 Spike. You know it."

92
"I used to know her at
 Coney Island. I tried to
 tell you."

93
"Will you forgive me, kid?"

94
"There ain't nothing ever
 going to come between
 us again, is there?"
