P. T. Barnum, s Show

Good evening to you everyone. ] brought the old bmijo, To tt ll you all what happened to me - Whtn I went to Barnum's Show . I saw the leopard change his spots, Said one dog to another, "Oh m etl me> love, hy the moonlight, .And l

The mollkey and the elephant Were playing seven up, The spider and the blue-tailed PY lf?ere eating Kaiser's pup. The kangaroo danced a polka 'fF ith the baboon's little brother,

The skunk and the fat man go t mixed up, So you could~'t tell w hich was ' to t her. [Cho rus]

Barnum and the happy family Went out on a drun k, The alligator came rolling home,

Chorus: I f you want t o have some fu n, I will tell you w here to go To see t lie lion st uffed with straw , At P. T. Bar11111n's S how.

And rolled in th e bull fro g's hunk. The camel called the kangaroo a liar, Said the baboon was a f ool, T he mosquito got on his dignity, .And pulverized th e mule. [Ch orus]
