The Lyrics

YouTube -- In "BRANNIGAN!" John Wayne plays a maverick police detective sent to jolly olde London to extradite a bigtime criminal. "Marian The Librarian" is from the Robert Preston musical "The Music Man."
Hittin' the fan again
Oh, hurry and expedite to extradite
An ultra baddie, natty-dressed like a mannequin...Brannigan

He's in London but we need him to be right here
For his criminal rivals fear that
He can put them inside the can again...go get him, Brannigan

Oh, I know you have a gun that weighs a ton
So make it bangy-bangy at the bad man again...Brannigan

You may grumble that you've been in the sun getting browner
Call this overseas trip a downer
But upon your return you'll tan again...tall, dark, and Brannigan

Now if this goon might attempt to wing it
Take a noon flight
Plan to be commandeering a car in
Pursuit of that villainous toad
On the lefthand side of the road

Don't let him hypnotize with lawyer's lies
Just put the whimmy-whammy on his shenanigan...Brannigan

When you get your paws on this hooligan
It's permissible to expect a tiny bit of a din
Just don't let any fat fly out of the pan again
Get your man again...attaboy, Brannigan
