I'm doing research on the play "You Can't Take it With You" and I need to find the lyrics to a song which includes the lyrics "There was a Young Lady from Wheeling." If anyone has some information on where I might find this song, please let me know! Thanks.

The nearest thing that I know is... 'There was a young lady from Ealing' (or Darjeeling in some versions that presumably date from the British occupation of India) It is a bawdy song and due to email protocol at this end I will send what I know to Digital Tradition under separate cover. The chorus is. That was a horrible song, sing us another one, just like the other one, sing us another one do. Verses are bawdy limericks that anyone in the audience can remember. See Digital Tradition's Little Moses. For a good collection of bawdy limericks try the Playboy Book of Limericks. Bert.

There was a young lady from Wheeling
Who professed to no sexual feeling
Till a cynic named Boris
Just touched her clitoris
And she had to be scraped off the ceiling

There was a young lady from Ealing
Who once did a dance so appealing
There was never a sound
For miles around
only fly-buttons hitting the ceiling

Wassail! V

There was a young lady from Wheeling
Who had a peculiar feeling
She laid on her back and tickled her crack
And she pissed all over the ceiling.

I think the line appears but only as a line.

There was a young lady from Wheeling who had a remarkable feeling . . .

The script for "You Can't Take it With You" is available on-line through Google books.

Mr. Seto's '01 post is canon.
