It begins with rhythmic handclapping, then a timpani hit with the pedal bending the pitch, then a rocking groove with bass and strings. It's the main title music for our 129th Soundtrack of the Week: Marcello Giombini's score for Return of Sabata.

After that intro, you hear the familiar twang of the spaghetti western electric guitar, and then the lyrics to the Return of Sabata theme.

Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
Sabata, Sabata
The fastest gun in the west
I said, the fastest gun in the west
Nine-fingered man
Four-barrelled dillinger
Sabata
He's the only invincible man in the countryside
Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom

Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
If you want to get money
And if you want to get rich
And if you want a good life
You've gotta be a son of a
Bom ba bom ba bom bom bom
