I'm looking for the lyrics to John Prine's wonderful anthem to the midwest winters. Anyone know this song? Seth from China

Subject: Lyr Add: SABU VISITS THE TWIN CITIES ALONE (Prine)
From: Jim Dixon

SABU VISITS THE TWIN CITIES ALONE
Written by John Prine
As recorded by John Prine on “Bruised Orange” (1978)

1. The movie wasn't really doing so hot.
Said the new producer to the old big shot:
"It's dying on the edge of the great Midwest.
Sabu must tour or forever rest."

CHORUS: Hey, look, ma! Here comes the elephant boy,
Bundled all up in his corduroy,
Headed down south towards Illinois
From the jungles of East St. Paul.

2. His manager sat in the office alone,
Staring at the numbers on the telephone,
Wondering how a man could send a child actor
To visit in the land of the wind chill factor. CHORUS

3. Sabu was sad. The whole tour stunk.
The airlines lost the elephant's trunk.
The roadie got the rabies and the scabies and the flu.
They was low on morale but they was high on.… CHORUS

From the jungles of East St. Paul.
From the jungles of East St. Paul.
