Ladies and Gentlemen, skinny and stout, 
I'll tell you a tale I know nothing about; 
The Admission is free, so pay at the door, 
Now pull up a chair and sit on the floor.
 
One bright day in the middle of the night, 
Two dead boys got up to fight; 
Back to back they faced each other, 
Drew their swords and shot each other.
 
A blind man came to watch fair play, 
A mute man came to shout 'Horray! '
A deaf policeman heard the noise and
Came to stop those two dead boys.
 
He lived on the corner in the middle of the block, 
In a two-story house on a vacant lot; 
A man with no legs came walking by, 
and kicked the lawman in his thigh.
 
He crashed through a wall without making a sound, 
into a dry creek bed and suddenly drowned; 
The long black hearse came to cart him away, 
But he ran for his life and is still gone today.
 
I watched from the corner of the big round table, 
The only eyewitness to facts of my fable; 
But if you doubt my lies are true, 
Just ask the blind man, he saw it too..
