IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:

I searched for years for this commercial or at least the music. Finally, someone supplied me with a really distorted copy of the music. So I created this simulation of the commercial just to get the general idea. I think I came pretty close.

Since posting this someone else posted a much better copy of the music and another person took that audio and my video to create essentially the same video but with clear music. I thank them both for their efforts.

However, recently someone FINALLY posted the real commercial. So no more need for simulation: Here it is:

Thank you so much...it's a thrill to finally see it. And I am amused at how close I came with my pretend commercial.

I will leave this video up since some of you may have bookmarked it and this will help find the real one...and I do have the lyrics posted.

What follows is the original description for this one.

Not the actual commercial but an attempt to recreate the look and feel and most importantly to make available this song that folks have been seeking for years. Tommy Makem & the Clancy Brothers. Lyrics by Tommy (I think). Sorry for the audio quality but it was the best I could find at the time after years of searching.
Sing along with Tommy!

I'm an able bodied sailor and I've often crossed the line
On whaling ships and sailing ships and ships of ev-er-y kind
But now I've got the very best job I've had for many a day
I'm workin' on the tanker bringing oil to Bantry Bay

Hey!

Bringin' home the oil, me boys, bringin' home the oil!
Sailin' all around the world, bringin' home the oil!
A' workin' on a giant ship, it's very hard we toil,
Sailin' into Bantry Bay, bringin' home the oil!

She is the biggest ship me lad that's ever sailed the sea
But graceful as a swan she goes, we sail her at our ease
From Araby around Cape Hope we proudly make our way
And keep all Europe moving from our base in Bantry Bay

Hey!

Bringin' home the oil, me boys, bringin' home the oil!
Sailin' all around the world, bringin' home the oil!
A' workin' on a giant ship, it's very hard we toil,
And sailin' into Bantry Bay, bringin' home the oil!

instrumental

They're building other tankers now to speed more oil to you
The Universe Kuwait, me lads, Japan and Portugal too
Also the Universe Ireland, I'm very proud to say
Is among the giant ships that's bringin' oil to Bantry Bay

Hey!

Bringin' home the oil, me boys, bringin' home the oil!
Sailin' all around the world, bringin' home the oil!
A' workin' on a giant ship, it's very hard we toil,
Sailin' into Bantry Bay, bringin' home the oil!

A' workin' on a giant ship, it's very hard we toil,
And sailin' into Bantry Bay, bringin' home the oil!
