quokka Lyr Req: Danny Kaye Songs (100* d) RE: Lyr Req: Danny Kaye Songs 09 Aug 10

Does anyone have the lyrics to the song Danny sang in The Court Jester about how he became a jester? I remember a little bit:

My mother she cried[...] you're a brute and you don't understand him
So I went to a witch with a terrible twitch and I asked how my future impressed her
She took one look at me -
she said tee-hee-hee- he? What else could he be but a jester?
A jester? A jester? A funny idea, a jester.
But where could I learn any comical turn without any book on the shelf
No teacher to shape me, to mold me and make me...

Anyone have any more of this?
