Thursday Theme Song - The Mighty Quinn

The Mighty Quinn
Artist: Manfred Mann
Lyrics: Bob Dylan

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

Everybody's building ships and boats

Some are building monuments, others are jotting down notes

Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy

Come all without, come all within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn
