Since I was a little kid in 1960's, one question has dogged me...

When Quinn the eskimo gets here, just why will everyone jump for joy?

Is there something big that I am missing?

I can't help you there? Is it a local proverb or something?

Edit...Bob Dylan *facepalm* Silly me

A coherent thought process?

I give up?

I read somewhere that the Eskimo's word for Jesus Christ was Quinn..

Originally a song by Manfred Mann. Dylan alluded to it being a simple nursery rhyme but wikipedia has other ideas.
en.m.wikipedia.org...(Mighty_Quinn)

What, you didn't know...? Am I the ONLY person who knows this...?

Quinn the Eskimo is actually an Alien known as JesusAllahBuddah... And When He arrives, he will bring Peace, Love and lots of beer and weed...man

...So, yeah, we will be jumping for joy followed by lots of beltching and a craving for Doritos...

ALL HAIL QUINN THE ESKIMO!!

Because Quinn the Eskimo is the only one who can stop the Duke of Earl.

Seems everyone everywhere has a different idea as to what this meant.


Back around the time this song came out, I remember a dj who had a nationwide top 40 countdown radio show (can't remember his name-but it wasn't Casey Kasem) saying that the 'Mighty Quin' referred to Winston Churchill. His nickname was 'Quiny'. This song was about Churchill's heroic stand during WWII. Churchill was cold and calculating regarding his determination to save England and defeat the Germans. Therefore the songwriter called him 'Quin the eskimo'.
-Steve, Almond, NY


This seems likely to me

My humble theory: think Eskimo=snow and Mighty Quinn=mighty queen. With this in mind you can read:
Everybody's in despair, every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here, everybody's gonna jump for joy
Song is great anyway. I like BD version the most.
- Yorr, Warsaw, Poland
