THE TATTOOED LADY (O’Keefe) Billy Cotton & his Band V. Alan Breeze I just heard a story that rings in my ears It’s one of the saddest a soul ever hears To think of it makes me break out into tears It deals with a man and his mate Mother Eve in the Garden of Eden Heard the serpent the same as the lass And this girl might have turned from temptation Except for a terrible snake in the grass Oh, shame on the man who pursued her The villain who viciously wooed her She fell in a faint, so he pulled out his paint And the first thing she knew, he’d tattooed her Her downfall began as an innocent thing Her husband went off to go fishing one spring So she joined her girl friends to go on a fling They all went to bathe on the beach Then this artist came up with his paint pot And his needle to toy mit her calf She allowed him to tinker, he painted a fiend Who was sawing a woman in half Oh, shame on the man who pursued her The villain who viciously wooed her She fell in a faint, so he pulled out his paint And the first thing she knew, he’d tattooed her The girl wasn’t bright, and the fellow was smart And now that he’d made such a favourable start He made her believe she was helping his art They met every day after that (Musical Break) Never once did she think that he loved her Nor did she think that he’d do her harm Till the day that he tattooed in red, white and blue And he wrote “I love you” on her arm Oh, shame on the man who pursued her The villain who viciously wooed her She fell in a faint, so he pulled out his paint And the first thing she knew, he’d tattooed her Her husband come home and they instantly kissed His eyes read the writing from elbow to wrist He foamed at the mouth and eventually hissed His rage drove him blinkin’ well barmy She was hurt by his attitude deeply And hysterically started to laugh So she pulled down her stocking and showed him the beast Who was sawing a woman in half Oh, shame on the man who pursued her The villain what viciously wooed her She fell in a faint, so he pulled out his paint And the first thing she knew, he’d tattooed her (Yodelling break) No chance did she have to explain things, for then He yelled, “Never dampen my bath-mat again” So now she gets tattooed whenever she can She works in a circus for pay And her soft epidermis is painted With the pictures of sailors and such And if you have a needle you too can tattoo On the skin that they all love to touch Oh, shame on the man who pursued her The villain who viciously wooed her She fell in a faint, so he pulled out his paint And the first thing she knew, he’d tattooed her
