Finally got around to it. The verses in the forum are out of order.
The Tattooed Lady (Paddy Roberts)
Oh, I was a bit of a lad, I admit,
my past was a trifle shady,
until in the end I went right 'round the bend,
And married a tattooed lady.
I immediately saw there were pictures galore
'round ev'ry available corner.
As I studied her frame very soon I became
an expert in flora and fauna.
On the back of each knee was a small chimpanzee.
On her thigh was a knight of the garter.
And just for a laugh, they had put on her calf
eight bars of the Moonlight Sonata.
One evening I found as I (ambled, wandered) around
I was feeling an absolute charlie
For I couldn't be sure if the sketch on her jaw
was Picasso or Salvador Dali.
Some things I found out, I just won't talk about,
I find it's inclined to embarrass,
But I give you my word, though it may sound absurd,
It was just like the Louvre in Paris.
On one of her feet you were liable to meet
A master of hounds in his habit
And right 'round her waist, in impeccable taste
Was a python devouring a rabbit!
I loved all the ships on one side of her hips,
the view in Peru on the other,
but I was struck dumb when I found on her 'tum'
a caricature of her mother!
For this was much more than a man could endure
Though I made the most earnest endeavour
So I scuttled away, and I'm happy to say
It was ta-ta tattoo, forever.
Ta-ta, tattoo, forever.
Ta-ta tattoo, (2 bar run) forever!
