Oh My What a Fair Rendering!
Long (Long? years!) ago I discussed this topic with my friend Lash. He assured me there were in fact Three (count 'em) Tattooed Lady songs - including the one of Kingston Trio fame (and upon her back was a Union Jack), the one Kermit the Frog made famous ("Lydia, Lydia, Have you seen Lydia? - I thought he said Porter wrote it but I am delighted to discover it's a Yip Harburg lyric) and then there was the third he mentioned -
"What was that? " I codgered for the longest time. Since Lash & I only get together about once a decade (& I'd forgotten to ask at the last time) I was flummoxed. But I figure it must have been the Rudy Vallee (sp?) version.
And now we learn there are more! Saints preserve us!
I could use a little home in Waikiki right about now, the snow is growing.
