"Lydia, the Tattooed Lady" by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg

Introduction:
(spoken or sung)

Ah Lydia,
She was the most glorious creature under the sun.
Guiess! DuBarry! Garbo! Rolled into one.

Verse 1:

[C]Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia the tattooed [G7]lady
[F]She has [C]eyes that [F]folks a[C]dore so
[F]And a [Dm]torso [F]even [Dm]more so
[C]Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia
Oh, Lydia the Queen of Tat[F]too
On her [Dm]back is The Battle of Waterloo
Be[F]side it The Wreck of the Hesperus, too
And [C]proudly above waves the [F]red, white, and blue.
You can [C]learn a [G7]lot from [C]Lydia!

Chorus:

[C]La la la, la la la
La la la, [Eb]la la la

Verse 2:

[Eb]When her robe is unfurled she will show you the world
If you step up and tell her [Bb]where
For a dime you can see Kankakee or Paree
or Washington crossing The [Eb]Delaware

Chorus:

[Eb]La la la, la la la
La la la, [C]la la la

Verse 3:

[C]Oh Lydia, oh Lydia, say, have you met Lydia?
Lydia the tattooed [G7]lady
[F]When her [C]muscles [F]start re[C]laxin',
[F]Up the [Dm]hill comes [F]Andrew [Dm]Jackson
[C]Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia.
Oh Lydia the queen of them [F]all
For two [Dm]bits she will do a mazurka in jazz
With a [F]view of Niagara that nobody has
And [C]on a clear day you can [F]see Alcatraz
You can [C]learn a [G7]lot from [C]Lydia!

Chorus:

[C]La la la, la la la
La la la, [Eb]la la la

Verse 4:

[Eb]Come along and see Buffalo Bill with his lasso
Just a little classic by Mendel Pi[Bb]casso
Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon
Here's Godiva, but with her pa[Eb]jamas on

Chorus:

[Eb]La la la, la la la
La la la, la la la

Verse 5:

[Eb]Here is Grover Whelan unveilin' The Trilon
Over on the west coast we have Treasure [Bb]Isle-on
Here's Nijinsky a-doin' the rhumba
Here's her social security [Eb]numba

Chorus:

[Eb]La la la, la la la
La la la, [C]la la la

Verse 6:

[C]Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclopedia
Oh Lydia the champ of them [F]all
She once [Dm]swept an Admiral clear off his feet
The [F]ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat
And [C]now the old boy's in com[F]mand of the fleet
for he [C]went and [G7]married [C]Lydia!

Ending:

[C]I said Lydia...
He said Lydia...
They said Lydia...
We said Lydia, la, la!
