Indiana Jones Wiki

"A British Tar" is a song from the Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera H.M.S. Pinafore, written in 1878.

Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir was familiar with the tune and lyrics, and after being kissed goodbye by Marion Ravenwood at the Cairo Docks in 1936, he began loudly singing the song and miming the tune's actions, as he strolled from the Bantu Wind back home.[1]

Thirty-three years later, in 1969, a now immigrated Sallah would sing this song again to his grandchildren just as they, alongside Helena Shaw and Teddy Kumar, left Indy's apartment to let him have some privacy with Marion, who had recently come to visit him after his time traveling adventure with the Antikythera.[2]
