Historian: Thesba

It’s not that I don’t want to write this song history. It’s just that, rubbing-alcoholic and cad that I am, I’ve got some other stuff to tend to.   So do me a favor and get this one straight from the horse’s mouth:

Now, off to do some beer belly dancing...

Sincerely,

Thesba

Albums: Party Time

Da doo dada

Da doo dada
(Birdwatcher)

Thesba called me on the phone
He had a case of colic
I told him it was 'cause he was
A rubbing alcoholic

Trempkin was so proud he was
Such a great romancer
Until I said the world could use
One less beer-bellied dancer

Nell-Catain was pregnant and
She heard all the expressions
It's just a hot flash or
Or else those fire breathing lessons

I sleep, I dream, I dream I sleep
Sometimes dreaming is too deep
If I could shed one layer now
I'd still remain asleep somehow

Da doo dada

Da doo dada
Birdwatcher

Thesba called me on the phone
He had a case of colic
(Fighting fire with fire)
I told him it was because he was
A rubbing alcoholic
(Now he's hitting the sauce)

Trempkin was so proud he was
Such a great romancer
(He's always watching the birds)
Until I said the world could use
One less beer-bellied dancer

Nell-Catain was pregnant and
She heard all the expressions
It's just a hot flash or
Or else those fire breathing lessons

I sleep, I dream, I dream I sleep
Sometimes dreaming is too deep
If I could shed one layer now
I'd still remain asleep somehow

Da doo dada
