Oscar Brand's "My Old Man's a Sailor"

additional verse:

My old man's a burglar.
What do you think about that?
He wears a sailor's collar;
he wears an anthropologist's hat.
He wears a refrigerator repair man's raincoat;
he wears a cotton-pickin' finger-lickin chicken plucker's shoes.
And every Saturday evening he bring's home something new.
And one day, if I can,
I'm gonna be a fence for all the guys like my old man.

-based on the Smothers Brothers' version
