"Don't Buy a Parrot from a Sailor" is a deleted song written by Mel Leven for 101 Dalmatians. It was intended to be sung by Horace and Jasper at the De Vil Mansion, as a sort of cockney chant.

Lyrics

A parrot makes an awful pet when he's been out to sea
You might say he'd be nothin' but your feathered enemy
He's tough and old, he's rough and bold
And his neck should be wrung
In 'is big beak, he's got a shrieky, disrespectful tongue

So...
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
All them birds say embarrassin' words
So, don't buy a parrot from a sailor

Now, shy Miss Molly bought a Polly
From a sailor lad
She put him in her hatbox
So's you'd not know what she had
She took a crowded bus back home
And thought she'd have a stroke
Each time the bloomin' hatbox told another salty joke

So...
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
All them birds say embarrassin' words
So, don't buy a parrot from a sailor

The cookery in a fine cafe
He bought a parrot, too
One night while cook was servin' up
A tasty rabbit stew
His customers was horrified
Their appetites went flat
When Polly flew around and cried:
"We'll miss you, pussycat"

So...
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
All them birds say embarrassin' words
So, don't buy a parrot from a sailor

Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
Don't buy a parrot from a sailor
All them birds say embarrassin' words
So, don't buy a parrot from a sailor!
