I do sort of...Longview Washingotn in the 1950s...23rd street, St. Rose School...

Not last night but the night before
24 Spaniards came knocking at my door
Ask them what they wanted and this is what they said

Spanish dancers turn around
Spanish dancers touch the ground
Spanish dancers leave the town

There's a place in Mars where the women are cigars
As you walk through the ashes think of these darling lasses

There's a place in France where the alligators dance

There's a place in France where the women wear no pants

Charlie Chaplin went to France to teach the girls how to hula hula dance...

I am a pretty little Dutch girl
Pretty as pretty can be
And all the boys around my house
Are crazy over me me me

My boyfirend's name is Patty
He comes from Cincinatti
With 28 toes and a pickle in his nose
And that's the way my story goes

First he gave me peaches
And then he gave me pears
And then he gave me fifty cents
And kissed me on the stairs

My father he was .>>>>>>>>>>
My mother she was too
My sister was so jealous that
She didn't know what to do....
