Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Spanish Cavalier
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Spanish Cavalier
I always heard it this way in my wild and wayward youth:


The Spanish Cavalier, sat on a case of beer,
Smoking a ten cent cigar, dear.
The odor from his feet,
Killed the man across the street,
And not he's in jail forever.

The Spanish Cavalier, sat in the electric chair,
Smoking a ten cent cigar, dear.
The odor from his shoes,
Blew out the electric fuse,
And now he's a free man forever.

You have to admit the Spanish Cavalier had a lot of panache to cooly smoke a cheap cigar while sitting in the electric chair.
