Lyrics

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady
She has eyes that men adore so
and a torso even more so
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia
Oh Lydia The Queen of them all
On her back is The Battle of Waterloo
Beside it the Wreck of the Hesperus too
And proudly above waves the red, white, and blue
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la

She can give you a view of the world in tattoo
if you step up and tell her where
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paree
or Washington crossing The Delaware.

La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady
When her muscles start relaxin'
up the hill comes Andrew Jackson
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia
Oh Lydia the champ of them all
For two bits she will do a mazurka in jazz
with a view of Niagara that nobody has
And on a clear day you can see Alcatraz
You can learn a lot from Lydia!

La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la

Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his lasso
Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon
Here's Godiva, but with her pajamas on

La-la-la, la-la-la
La-la-la, la-la-la

Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, oh, have you met Lydia?
Lydia The Tattooed Lady
When she stands the world grows littler
When she sits, she sits on Hitler
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia
Oh Lydia The Queen of them all
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet
for he went and married Lydia!

I said Lydia
(He said Lydia)
I said Lydia
We said Lydia, la, la!
