Intro:
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Haaaaaaaavvvvveeeeeee

Have you heard about the big strong man
He lived in a caravan
Have you heard about the Jeffrey Johnson fight
Oh lord what a hell of a fight
You can take all the heavyweights you got (Cause you got!)
You got a lad that can beat the whole lot (Whole lot!)
He use to play all the bells in the belfry,
Now he's going to fight Jack Dempsey.

Chorus:
Thats my brother Sylvest (What's he got?)
He's got a row of fourty medals on his chest (Big chest!)
He killed fifty capmen in the West,
He knows no rest, kind of the man, hellfire
Don't push, don't shove, plenty of room for you and me
He's got an arm like a leg,
And a fist that would sink a battle ship (Big ship!)
Takes all the Army and the Navy
To put the wind up Sylvest

He thought he'd take a trip to Italy
He thought that he'd go by sea,
He dived off the harbor at New York
And he swam like a man from cork
He saw the Lusitania in distress (What did he do?)
Put the big ship Lusitania on his chest (Big chest!)
He drank all the water in the sea
And he walked all the way to Italy.

Repeat Chorus

He thought he'd take a trip to old Japan.
They brought out the whole brass band.
He played every instrument they got
what a lad he played the whole lot.
The old church bell will ring (will ring)
The old Church choir did sing. (will sing)
They all turned out to wish him best
My big brother, Sylvest.

Repeat Chorus

Yeah, thats my brother Sylvest
He's got a row of fourty medals on his chest (Big chest!)
He killed fifty capmen in the West,
He knows no rest, kind of the man, hellfire
Don't push, don't shove, plenty of room for you and me
