No. 17 - Song - Talkington and Bathing Girls

MIDI File

Talkington: Within this modest tent you'll find
The girl who charms the snakes.
She eliminates the reptiles
From the whisky that she takes.
There's a living skeleton who thinks
His chances might be slim,
And a tattoed man who swears his wife
Has dark designs on him.
We've a man who's turning into stone,
And dying mighty hard,
And uncrowned ruler with three feet
All in a single yard.
But I'm looking for another freak
To discount all the rest,
A New York man who will admit
There's anything out west.
Ah, he's a freak we're dying to get,
He isn't a fellow so easily met;
In fact, we've never discovered him yet.
No, we've never discovered him yet.
Girls: Ah, he's a freak we're dying to get,
He isn't a fellow so easily met;
In fact, we've never discovered him yet.
No, we've never discovered him yet.
