Yip Harburg & Harold Arlen: Lydia, the Tattooed Lady

I do love a good rhyme. Maybe this was my gateway drug… My brother and I watched the Marx Brothers a lot when we were kids and At The Circus was one of our favorites. 

Here’s Groucho singing ‘Lydia, the Tattooed Lady’. (I mean, let’s talk about the utter genius of rhyming “tell her where” and “Delaware”, not to mention “Amazon” with “pajamas on”…)  You are welcome.
