    Lyrics

    Lydia, oh! Lydia, say have you met Lydia
    Oh! Lydia, the tattooed lady
    She has eyes that folks adore so
    And a torso even more so
    Lydia, oh! Lydia, that "Encyclopedia"
    Oh! Lydia, the Queen of tattoo
    On her back is the Battle of Waterloo
    Beside it the Wreck of the Hesperus too
    And proudly above the waves
    The Red, White and Blue
    You can learn a lot from Lydia

    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

    Oh! Lydia, oh! Lydia, say have you met Lydia
    Oh! 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 Niag'ra that no artist 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 Buff'lo Bill with his lasso
    Just a little classic by Mendel Picasso
    Here is Captain Spaulding exploring the Amazon
    And Godiva, but with her pajamas on
    La la la La la la La la la La la la

    Here is Grover Whalen unveilin' the Trylon
    Over on the west coast we have Treasure Islan'
    Here's Nijinsky a doin' the Rhumba
    Here's her Social Security numba
    La la la La la la La la la La la la

    Lydia, oh! Lydia, say have you met Lydia
    Oh! Lydia, the champ 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
