A Sami Salo musical tribute- think Paul Robeson's bass voice belting it out to the tune of Old Man River... (not Old Man Recchi).

Ol' man Sami,
Dat ol' man Sami
He mus' know sumpin'
But don't say nuthin',
He jes' keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along.

He don' make errors,
He don' miss assignments,
An' dem dat does 'em
is soon forgotten,
But ol'man Sami,
He jes keeps rollin' along.

Canucks an' Sami, we sweat an' strain,
Body all achin' an' racket wid pain,
Tote dat puck!
Lif' dat stick!
Git a little drunk
An' you land in jail.

Ah gits weary
An' sick of tryin'
Ah'm tired of livin'
An' skeered of dyin',
But ol' man Sami,
He jes' keeps rolling' along.

Finnish folks work on de ice rink,
Finnish folks work while de Russkie folks play,
Pullin' dose shifts from de dawn to sunset,
Gittin' no rest till de shootout day.

Don't look up
An' don't look down,
You don' dast make
De French Coach frown.
Bend your knees
An' bow your head,
An' pull date rope
Until you' dead.

Let me go 'way from the ice rink,
Let me go 'way from de French Coach boss;
Show me dat trophy called de Coupe Stanley,
Dat's de ol' Cup dat I long to hold.

O' man Sami,
Dat ol' man Sami,
He mus' know sumpin'
But don' say nuthin'
He jes' keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along.

Good ol' Sami forever keeps rollin' on...

He don' make errors,
He don' miss assignments,
An' dem dat does 'em
Is soon forgotten,
but ol' man Sami,
He jes' keeps rollin' along.

Good ol' Sami keeps hearing dat song.
Us an' Sami, we sweat an' strain,
Body all achin an' racked wid pain.
Tote dat puck!
Lif' dat stick!
Git a little drunk
An' you land in jail.

Ah, gits weary
An' sick of tryin'
Ah'm tired of livin'
An' skeered of dyin',
But ol' man Sami,
He jes'keeps rollin' along!
