PT Barnum's first tour= 6/2/1835.
  	   Roll up, roll up, lydies and gentlemen!  Come and see the
Cam-uel. -- Hay most peculiar hanimal wot heats straw and
shits through a tri-hanuglar horiface: hence the Pyramids.

Roll up, roll up, lydies and gents! Here we have the Leo-
pard: 365 spots, one for each die of the year. -- Wots that,
lydy? -- That's right. -- George, lift its tail, and show the
lydy leap-year.

Roll up, roll up, lydies and gentlemen. Come and see the
Wild Cat. -- It ain't got no arsehole -- that's what makes it
so bloody wild!

Roll up, roll up, and see the Wala Wala bird: flies round
in hever-diminishing circles 'til it flies hup its own funda-
mental horiface and disappears!
"Showmanship," Gershon Legman, "Bawdy Monologues,"
Southern Folklore Quarterly 40(1976) & see Silverman, Dirty Song Book

This great classic comes in many styles from the entire English-speaking world. Some other titles:
"The Wild West Show," "The Hamburg Show," "The Raree Show," "The Amburg Show."
