Lyrics

Yakko:
Got a tramp steamer, my ship's called "Hal".
Singers:
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
Got a cargo of sodas, they are low cal.
Singers:
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
Sailing 'cross the Caribbean Sea
To the Pacific in a jiffy
Through Panama, but not on land.
I'd look silly with my ship in the sand.
Singers:
Yo, Hal, try the canal,
Yo, Hal, the canal is your pal!
You can sail a cargo ship from sea to shining sea
Through the Panama Canal for a nominal fee.
Yakko:
You enter a lock, it's a ship corral.
Singers:
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
You pay your money then get a decal.
Singers:
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
You cross the locks; they number three,
Full of water for you and me.
One hundred feet wide, forty-one feet deep,
Water enough to drench a sheep.
Singers:
High lock, up goes the ship.
Low lock, the ship takes a dip.
First they raise the water level, then lower it again
'Cross the Panama Canal, it's really zen.
Yakko:
We pass the locks with good morale.
Singers:
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
The crew yells out...
Singers:
Thank you, Hal!
Forty miles on the Panama Canal.
Yakko:
You're welcome, men! Wasn't that fun?
Forty miles, our voyage is done.
From Colón now past Balboa,
Adios, Panama! So long! Aloha!
