  Yes Hello Sailorman!
by dr.firas

I wish I had time to translate the words of the wonderful song of Jaques Brel from French to English to share it here in this tip, as it is talking about the Sailors life, in a critical dark side, I had an interesting talk with this sailor, he had a very bad English, but I understood and felt most of the words in that song real in this short conversation, but Jaques Brel forgot one only one little detail, is showing the human side of those men, he was so freindly and simple, and I like it!
