A Tiny Tall Tale
Once upon a dark and moonlit night,
Two dead men prepared themselves to fight.
Back to back they faced each other’s frown,
Drew their knives and shot each other down.
Back to back they faced each other, drew their knives and shot each other. Ooh!
One was blind and the other couldn’t see,
So they chose a monkey for a referee.
A blind man went away to see fair play.
A dumb man went away to shout “Hooray!”
A blind man went to see fair play, a dumb man went to shout “Hooray!” Ooh!
A deaf old cop who heard the silent noise,
Pulled his gun and stabbed both of the boys.
If you don’t think my tale is really tall,
Ask the blind, he’s the one who saw it all!
If you don’t think his tail is tall, ask the blind, who saw it all! Ooh!
Yes, it’s true!
I may be wrong, but it seems as if the drummer is gone.
As it turns out, he won’t be the only one.
It’s sad but true, those eggs won’t shake themselves.
It won’t take long and there’ll be nobody else.
